Usually, when there appears a Spanish miner or UGT (union) member on this blog, it has everything to do with the Spanish Civil War, the time leading up to the conflict or the aftermath. But no, there are still beret-wearing miner activists in Astrurias.
Anton Saavedra was born in Moreda de Aller (Asturias) in 1948, and at the age of five moved to live in the mining basin Nalón where he still lives with his wife in the mining Slum The Juécara (Langreo).
Saavedra is the author of books such as “Secuestro del socialismo” (The Kidnapping of Socialism). His activities can be followed here.
