“Libres” Songs from the Spanish Revolution
Friday 17 November, 7pm, donations welcome
“Libres” is a concert and a lecture, story telling and folk song 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.
Hear Pilar here singing En la plaza de mi pueblo
