Chapter Summary

Political disagreements that had existed since the beginning of the war among the different Catalan political forces brought about an armed confrontation in Barcelona at the beginning of May 1937. This incident led to a series of lamentable episodes that occurred in several parts of the city. Numerous groups of armed people moved through Barcelona's streets, especially in the neighbourhoods and adjacent towns. In some places, barricades were constructed. As a consequence of the incidents and the anxiety they caused in the street, the Palace of the Generalitat took adequate security measures. Throughout the entire day in different parts of Barcelona, gunfire was exchanged between armed groups and the police as well as between countrymen. The number of people killed and injured due to these events is significant.
