    • whatThursday, February 3, 2011
    • In 1936, a group of anarchists defeated Franco’s troops in Barcelona. During the following 9½ months, half of Spain was under anarchist control. It was the first time that an anarchist revolution succeeded. Our story takes place during this time.Thursday, February 3, 2011
    • Also during this time... Ernest Hemingway visited and was fascinated by the freedom fighters. George Orwell wrote a book about the revolution without communists called “Homage to Catalonia.” All over Europe, intellectuals supported the republican side and many of them saw the Spanish Civil War as a prelude to a bigger confrontation between dictatorships and democracies.Thursday, February 3, 2011
    • The anarchists were not supporting democracy. The anarchists wanted to create a revolution. And one decision they took was to abolish private property.Thursday, February 3, 2011
    • In La Fatarella, a town in southern Catalonia, the peasants were against collective property. They wanted to work the land the same way they had done for generations. The peasants expelled the anarchists leaders from town.Thursday, February 3, 2011
    • On the 25th of January, anarchists troops entered the town and executed 31 peasants. At the time, the town had a population of 700 people.Thursday, February 3, 2011
    • The anarchist press called the peasants fascists. Multiple episodes ensued where the anarchists tried to create a revolution through violence. In May 1937 communist party took control of the republican side. In July 1939 the republicans lost the war. As a result, Spain fell under a right- wing dictatorship for the next 40 years.Thursday, February 3, 2011
