Organizer/AuthorOccupy Forum
The Spanish Civil War, lasting from 1936 to 1939, is a period with many hotly debated interpretations, views, and conclusions ever since its conclusion. The conflict itself was a truly tragic struggle where the hopes & aspirations of the Spanish people collided with the agendas of the powerful both inside and outside of the peninsula. In this conflict, ideas were tested as the first major confrontation with fascism unfolded.

In this presentation and discussion, facilitated by Ryan Smith, we will unravel the tangled mess that is the Spanish Civil War. Everything from one of the most celebrated examples of anarchism in action to the international politics that doomed the revolution's potential will be on the table for analysis and understanding. By studying this vital moment in history we can better learn how modern movements for social change can go forward.

Ryan Smith is a longtime Occupy activist and a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW).
