KSL on the Spanish Revolution

The Kate Sharpley Library have just published a double issue of their bulletin, focusing on the Spanish Revolution of 1936, the Iron Column, and the execution of Salvador Puig Antich in 1974. It marks the seventieth anniversary of the Spanish Revolution with an account of life under libertarian communism in an Aragonese village and three articles on the famous Anarchist milita unit, the Iron Column (Columna de Hierro). Also included are articles on Salvador Puig Antich, the MIL (Movimiento Iberico de Liberacion / Iberian Liberation Movement) and the forthcoming film, Salvador. Publishing news includes two new KSL pamphlets (on the Iron Column and on the Budapest Commune, 1919), a book on the assassination attempt on Franco from the air (1948) and forthcoming pamphlets. The Bulletin concludes with an obituary of Paul Avrich.

KSL: Bulletin of the Kate Sharpley Library, #46-47 (July 2006), special Puig Antich / Spanish Revolution / Iron Column double issue.

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2024 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
