Version in English – Film length: 37:54
Version in Spanish
The full 38 minute film of the extraordinary struggle in Catalonia against the oppression and violence of the Spanish state and for the right to vote, and the key role played by the radical left at the heart of the movement – from the student general strike that started things off, through the hundreds of thousands of people taking direct action and civil disobedience to ensure the referendum happened, to the 2 million strong general strike two days later against the police violence – with activists from across the radical left explaining the issues and how they organised around them. Versions in Spanish and Catalan coming soon on this channel. Hopefully this will help to debunk some of the myths and misunderstandings circulating about the Catalan independence struggle so that we can concentrate on building international solidarity for the right to democracy without fear of violence and imprisonment.
