75 years ago workers in Spain rose up against an attempted coup by Franco and other army generals. They took over three fifths of Spain including the working class stronghold of Catalonia and from there organised columns to liberate the rest of Spain from the fascists. In their wake they left villages where the peasants took over the land and factories which the workers now controlled. Yet this powerful movement was defeated, inaugurating an almost 4 decade long dictatorship. We will discuss why this was the case and what lessons can be learned from those event for today, where in Spain and other countries around the world youth and workers are fighting back against capitalist austerity.
The cadre school will take place over two days at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, Leeds, with an evening social on the Saturday night. Overnight accomodation can be provided if requested.
