NJLM
TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF NJLM

Our association 'No Jubilem la Memòria' has been celebrating its 10th anniversary. In 2003 the group was founded with the aim of recovering the historical events and memories of the period relating to the Second Republic and the Spanish civil war in the Priorat region. The varied activities that NJLM has brought to fruition during this time have helped to bring about a broader and deeper understanding of the complexities of those times, characterised by the fight for justice and liberty.

One of the projects that has contributed greatly to the achievement of our objectives has been the annual events organised by the association. This year, we commemorate the ten years since our foundation with different activities from now until the end of the year. The first part of our celebration toke the form of a collaboration between NJLM and the 'International Brigade Memorial Trust' (IBMT). This British group organised a tour from the 21-25th September 2013 in memory of the International Brigaders who fought in the Battle of the Ebro. NJLM participated in the planning of this tour, run by the IBMT, collaborating in the organisation of the public events that are related to the Priorat region.

The second part of the celebration of our tenth anniversary will take place towards the end of of this year. The main event will be the presentation of a book that encompasses the ten years of 'No Jubilem la Memòria'. The text includes the majority of themes, lectures, talks and debates that have been covered during our annual events. A programme will be planned around this presentation; the dates will be confirmed in the near future.
