First of May Group
The First of May Group was an anarchist anti-Franco resistance movement which took militant action against Francoist Spain. They were formed in 1966 by exiles dissatisfied with what they perceived as the quietism of other opposition groups. Actions attributed to the group include the occupation of the Vatican Embassy in 1966 and the machine-gunning of the Spanish embassy in London. A man claiming to speak for the group stated that they were behind the March 1974 bombing of the Spanish Cultural Institute in Dublin.
