Anarchist Immigrants in Spain and Argentina

University of Illinois Press

This chapter looks at the significance of returning immigrants and the importance of the Argentine anarchist movement during the Second Spanish Republic and in the anarchist revolution that transformed Catalonia in 1936. Abad de Santillán's After the Revolution (1936) gave a detailed account of the organization of an anarchist society. In July 1936, workers in Barcelona armed themselves and defeated the military in that city before beginning a social revolution that implemented many of the ideas expressed in Abad de Santillán's book. The anarchist-inspired revolution established a libertarian society based on anarchist principles of voluntary association without the coercive power of the state.
