In this talk from Socialist Appeal’s Revolution Festival in November 2019, Alan Woods – editor of In Defence of Marxism – discusses his book on the revolutionary movement that overthrew the Franco regime in Spain in the 1970s. Based on his own personal experiences and involvement, Alan explains how the movement to overthrow the Franco regime was a modern-day revolution, with the working class providing the motor force for change.
