Chapter Summary

Problems of public order in the Catalan rearguard persisted throughout the entire war. The confrontations that took place in the town of Fatarella (in the Terra Alta region of Tarragona) on 23 January 1937 were the culmination of a problem that would never be resolved. The CNT and the UGT give their respective, clearly contradictory interpretations of the events. On account of the incidents that occurred in the town of Fatarella (Tarragona) and led to open conflict, forces have been sent to re-establish order along with representatives of the ministers and the Committee of Internal Security, as well as representatives from those workers' and political organisations represented in the Catalan Generalitat government, those which have intervened to re-establish normality. The UGT, PSUC, and JSU of Tarragona and Reus met to deliberate over the painful events that occurred in the town of Fatarella.
