Summer of Anarchy by Edu Comelles - 2015



In the summer of 1936, Barcelona became the very first and only anarchist state. In the wake of a toppled empire, empowered anarchist unions formed a makeshift army, and successfully resisted a Fascist coup d'état. This began a historic social experiment to see what becomes of society when it’s not governed by a central authority.

Discover this remarkable history on a walk with the characters who lived it first hand, by exploring the places where it took life. You will be walking together with Jose, who became an anarchist after serving as a soldier of the Spanish empire; Concha Liaño a young Spanish feminist and anarchist activist; and George Orwell, whose experiences as a volunteer anarchist soldier would later inform his famous work, “1984”.
