Joint Efforts in the Fight against Franco: Protest and Repression during the Spanish Long '68

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

As in many other countries, Spanish society also underwent its own '68. In response, the Franco regime increased repression: It became much harsher, and much broader. After that, opposition to state brutality became the anti-Franco movement's main cause and a unifying element for its many different actors. This is the process addressed by this article. Specifically, it aims to explore how repression facilitated the encounters between activists coming from different social movements and political organisations. At the same time, it tries to show the importance of diversifying the analyses on the long '68-focusing on different countries, regions and cities-in order to grasp its transnational nature.
