Unions and agricultural protests in inland Spain during the Transition: the example of Burgos province (1975–80)

Unions and agricultural protests in inland Spain during the Transition: the example of Burgos... Abstract This article analyses the creation of unions and the evolution of protests (demonstrations, tractor blockades) instigated by farmers in the province of Burgos, in the interior of northern Spain, during the period following the death of the dictator Francisco Franco known as the Transition (1975–80). The study uses press articles, documentation from the Civil Government and information gathered through personal interviews. The aim of the article is to show that the farmers of the interior of northern Spain – an electorally conservative region – also participated in the citizens’ protests that were the driving force behind the democratisation process in the country during the 1970s. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rural History Cambridge University Press
