In this talk from the main rally at Revolution Festival 2019, Alan Woods – editor of In Defence of Marxism – discusses his new book on the revolutionary movement that overthrew the Franco regime in Spain in the 1970s.
Based on his own personal experiences and involvement, Alan explains how the movement to overthrow the Franco regime was a modern-day revolution, with the working class providing the motor force for change.
And as with any revolutionary movement, Alan discusses, this period is full of vital lessons for a new generation coming into political activity today.
The remnants of the Franco regime live on still inside the modern bourgeois Spanish state. In this respect, as Alan concludes, “it is our duty to ensure that this unfinished revolution will be carried to a successful conclusion”.
