“Libres” Songs from the Spanish Revolution

libres-picture“Libres” is a concert and a lecture, story telling and folk song presented by Pilar Lopez

In 1936, in an unprecedented act of solidarity, people from many countries in Europe, Asia and the American continent traveled to Spain to risk their lives fighting fascism.
At the same time workers & their unions were engaging in a deep transformaion of society, a Social Revolution.

“Libres” brings stories, songs and images from these times and makes connections with today’s resistance to fascism and with contemporary currents striving for peace & liberty.

Friday 17 November, 7pm, donations welcome
