An unprecedented tempo of events has come to Catalonia in the last two months. Against the brutal repression of the Spanish state, millions of ordinary people have taken part in the largest civil disobedience movement against the Spanish state in 40 years.
This movement has revolutionary features in that it has brought so many people directly into polticial events and has thoroughly exposed the reactionary nature of the 1978 regime and its state apparatus, inherited from the Franco regime. The lessons to be drawn from this conflict, which is far from over, are precious; and will help to forge the revolutionary consciousness of the new generation, in Catalonia and throughout the Spanish state.
Join the Kent Marxist Society to discuss the events in Catalonia and the tasks of the left in Catalonia, Spain and throughout Europe.
