£1.50

Juan García Oliver (1901-1980) was an anarcho-syndicalist militant who played a key role in the Spanish anarchist movement (CNT-FAI) from 1917 through to the end of the Spanish Civil War. When the military moved out of their barracks on 18 July 1936 he, along with Durruti, Ascaso, and other members of the ‘Nosotros’ Group, the core of the Regional CNT Defence Committee of Catalonia (the co-ordinating body of the Catalan workers’ resistance), were prepared and ready for them. From 21 July, following the defeat of the attempted fascist coup d’état, Oliver was a central figure in the events that followed, first as secretary of the Militias Committee then a Minister of Justice in the Madrid government of Largo Caballero.
