This chapter continues the narrative from May 5th to May 7th, beginning with the negotiations taking place in the Generalitat Palace to form a new government in Barcelona while the fighting continued. Appeals were issued from the Palace, pleading for an end to the conflict, though three incidents escalated the conflict further—the shootings and deaths of leading figures from both sides of the conflict. The fighting would continue to intensify and abate as calls for ceasefires and revolutionary fervor alike starved and fueled the conflict by turns, though the fighting grew less heated on the morning of May 7th. The end of the conflict and the Anarchosyndicalist predominance in Catalonia would signal a portentous victory for the Communists.

Keywords:   Anarchosyndicalists, Anarchists, Communists, May events, ceasefires, Barcelona, Catalonia
