The Spanish Civil War

This chapter describes how the transfer of the Negrín government from Valencia to Barcelona resulted in a political fallout between the regional and central authorities. After the events of May 1937 ended, discontent smoldered over the retention of police authority by the central government. The transfer caused plenty of complaints, which the presence of obtrusive central government authorities and the PCE had only added to, and all these sparked the fierce regionalist sentiments of the Catalans. The presence of the SIM also exacerbated tensions. Regional autonomy was foremost in the Catalans' minds, yet Negrín was not interested—instead insisting on a unified Spain, especially in light of a mutual interest in defeating Franco.

Keywords:   Negrín government, Barcelona, Catalonia, regional autonomy, August crisis, May events, regionalism, SIM, regional authorities, central authorities
