Autonomous Workers and Anticapitalist Guerrillas in Francoist Spain
Salvador Puig Antich's murder by the Spanish state was a cause celebrate. Joan Miró's The Hope of a Condemned Man triptych is inspired by the execution.
Puig Antich's group, the MIL (Iberian Liberation Movement), has never been extensively written about in English until now.
In the 1970s Franco's Spain was the last of the classical fascist states. Events like the death of Puig Antich were cracks in the facade that eventually saw the regime fall in 1975, just a year after Puig Antich's execution.
