DOCUMENTARY: Llach, La Revolta Permanent (fragment, 2008)

On 3 March 1976 in Vitoria, during the course of a workers’ meeting, police action caused five deaths and more than a hundred injured as a result of bullet wounds.
That same night, Llach composed what was to become one of the most symbolic songs of the Transition: "Campanades a morts", or “Toll for the dead”.

This is the story of a song, the portrait of the person who wrote it and the chronicle of the events that inspired it. A cry and a demand for permanent revolt against forgetting.
