Christie, Stuart and Antonio Téllez Solà. Anarchist international action against Francoism from Genoa 1949 to The First Of May Group. Kate Sharpley Library: 2010. 25 pages. Translated by Paul Sharkey.
From the end of the Spanish Civil War the anarchist movement fought to undermine the Francoist dictatorship. Solidarity actions in Western Europe aimed to isolate the regime, and bring pressure to bear in defence of militants inside Spain. Determined to avoid casualties, their campaign of armed protests saved many activists from the death penalty.
