Never mind the World Cup – Anarchism in 1930s Spain – Sunday 18th July

Now the World Cup is over and done with we can get on with one of the more important aspects of Spanish history!

On Sunday 18th July at The Sparrows’ Nest in St Ann’s from 1pm until 6pm we will be presenting an exhibition and two talks about the Spanish Civil War and Revolution of the 1930s. We are very pleased to present, during the afternoon, talks by members of the Solidarity Federation who are coming to Nottingham especially for the event. The exhibition on Anarchism in Spain explores the role of the anarchists in the civil war and the social revolution, in particular the CNT-IWA anarcho-syndicalist union and the FAI (Iberian anarchist federation). Talks by members of the Solidarity Federation (the IWA’s British section) are ‘Spain, 1936-39′ at 2.00pm and ‘The CNT today’, at 4.00pm.

This is just a taste of what the event will be about. The exhibition will feature books, texts and images of and about the same period.
