Happy birthday, Francisco Ferrer (Jan. 10, 1859 – Oct. 13, 1909)! #Anarchist. #Freethinker. Educator. Founded The Modern School in Spain in 1901, for the purpose of teaching radical social values to middle-class children. In the summer of 1909, riots erupted in Barcelona, and Ferrer was accused of being an insurrectionist. He was arrested, tried, and quickly executed by firing squad on October 13. 1909.
