Anarchism, Morocco, & the Spanish Civil War

Carrying the war into Africa? Anarchism, Morocco, and the Spanish Civil War

From Freedom News UK by Danny Evans

I was approached by Jeff Stein to write up a summary of Abel Paz, La cuestión de Marruecos y la República española so that English-language readers might be made aware of the Spanish anarchist approach to Morocco during the civil war.

The Spanish Revolution: Anarchy in Action

The Spanish Revolution: Anarchy in Action

From Anarchist Writers by anarcho

This is a write-up of a talk I gave in Nottingham in March 2019. It is an introduction to the 1936 Spanish Revolution as well as a general introduction to the anarchist theory which inspired it. After all, you cannot see how 1936 was anarchy in action if you do not know what anarchy is. The meeting was advertised as following:

“Iain McKay takes us back to Spain in the 1930s where anarchists occupied the factories and the land, to make a revolution at the same time as fighting Franco's fascists. And within that revolution, the women of Mujeres Libres fought also for the liberation of women.”
