Cool. He was pushed out by the CNT, which tried to disenfranchise most of the IWA in 1937 and 38.

For being critical of their participation in the government, that's what it cam down to. The way the CNT actually went about neutering the IWA Secretariat was by forming the Solidaridad Internacional Antifascista (SIA). The SIA took all aid and solidarity work for the Spanish movement away from the Secretariat and placed it n the CNT controlled SIA

I have a few "IWMA Press" bulletins (in english) where some in the international movement layout out their differing views on this.
