On Wednesday March 26, a million students marched through the streets of more than 70 cities in Spain against the imperialist war. This protests had been called by the Marxist-led Spanish Students Union (Sindicato de Estudiantes) and are part of a campaign to demand a general strike against the war.
The pressure that is piling up has increased after yesterday's student
demos. This should help to convince the leaders of the unions to organise for the
General Strike to force the resignation of the Government. The demonstrations
called by the Students Union have been a great success, bringing on to the
streets thousands of students. 30,000 in Madrid, 20,000 in Barcelona, 10,000 in
Seville, etc are proof that the students will not stop until a real 24 hour
general strike is called.
With great sadness we have just learned of the sudden death of comrade Angel Val Mendizabal at the age of 81. The father of a remarkable family of revolutionaries, Angel was a proletarian class fighter all his life.
