In 1936 the people of Spain rose up to resist a military coup, part of a larger wave of fascism spreading across Europe. Militants of the CNT, Spain’s largest labour Union, openly espousing the ideas of anarchism, organized popular militias to both defeat the fascists and to radically transform their country.

Commemorate the Struggle against Fascism and the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Civil war with Anarchist Veteran George Sossenko.

The event will be held at 1710 Beaudry on Thursday, May 18th.
Doors open at 6:30pm.

Seating may be limited.

Organized as part of the Festival of Anarchy.
