Anarchist anthem from the Spanish Civil War, using a 19th century Polish tune. I found it hard to track down a score of it.

I first encountered it in a display at the Museum of the History of Catalonia in Barcelona, but forgot about it until yesterday, when I heard some anarchists singing it at the demo for Catalonia outside the Spanish Consulate in Edinburgh. There are several versions on YouTube.

And from today's general strike in Catalonia:

CNT road blockade
