Anarchist Immigrants in Spain and Argentina

This chapter presents a history of the political and social climates of Spain and Argentina after 1930. A military coup led by General José Félix Uriburu created a new political climate in Argentina, as the new government hunted down, arrested, and deported anarchists. Abad de Santillán fled Argentina and eventually moved to Spain. Argentina deported hundreds of other Spaniards, most notably Manuel Villar, who became important in the anarchist movement in Spain before and during the civil war. At the same time, the end of Spain's military dictatorship, the abdication of the monarch, and the creation of a parliamentary republic offered new hope to anarchists there. Consequently, the changing political climate in Argentina forced some Spanish-born anarchist émigrés back to Spain.
