The Galician Armed League (Liga Armada Galega in Galician language) was an armed organization formed by former members of the GRAPO. They injured two policemen in 1978, and claimed to have killed a Guardia Civil the same year in Santiago de Compostela,[1] though the GRAPO also claimed the murder. The group was completed disbanded in 1980.

The punk band Siniestro Total mentions this organization in one of their most emblematic songs: "Miña Terra Galega".
