I see that the person who told me about this talk also contacted WorldbyStorm on Cedars, who was more prompt in putting it up than I was. Still I didn’t want to bump down Conor’s great post below too quickly.
For those of you interested, Roma Marquez Santo, a veteran of the Spanish Civil War will speak at the Teacher’s Club in Parnell Square this Thursday.
Roma Marquez is a 93-year old Catalan who joined the POUM militia on the outbreak of the generals’ revolt in July ‘36 and later joined the anarchist militia after the POUM were suppressed. He spent several years in prison after the war and returned to live in BCN where he has remained politically active.
He’s in Ireland partly for a TCD conference and partly to talk to interested people about his experiences.
Thanks to the people organising this for letting us know about it.
While I’m posting, I’d also recommend the book review of the new edition of Leo Panitch’s Renewing Socialism which has just been published on ILR.
