"First of May" group and the occupation of the vatican embassy in 1966
Quote:
This song was inspired by the CNT group "First of May", who occupied the vatican embassy in 1966

This is a translation from the liner notes of an Esperanto hip-hop album I'm listening to. Does anyone know more about this group?

I wikied this and I got a Bee Gees song. I'm trying to figure out if that is supposed to mean anything.

Aha. So it was the vatican embassy in madrid then? Does anyone know how it turened out? Did they occupy it with certain demands, and were they met? What kind of repression happened afterwards? Did the rest of the libertarian movement support it or was it seen as adventurism?
