anarchiste diamond dingbat; anarquista
Spain: Isabel Mesa Delgado (b.1913) dies. Militant anarco-sindicalista, member of the CNT from the age of 14, secretary of Valencian Mujeres Libres &, following the defeat of the revolution, organized a clandestine resistance group & provided aid to prisoners & their families under the fascist dictatorship. With the death of Franco Isabel helped with new libertarian projects, like Radio Klara & the ateneo Ateneo Libertario al Margen.

“I am daughter, granddaughter & biznieta of anarchists.”

Dead at the age of 88, her coffin was draped with a black flag, as she wanted, with her true name stitched on it (rather than her alias "Carmen Delgado Palomares," which she adopted in 1941), & the song «A las barricadas» in accompaniment. LAS PROVINCIAS - VALENCIA 3 de Marzo 2002 Muerte de una libertaria
Isabel Mesa se fue el pasado lunes envuelta en una bandera anarquista y con los sones de «A las barricadas». Se fue con su nombre real, no el que tuvo que adoptar para huir de una doble condena a muerte franquista. Sindicalista desde los 14 años, fue una de las líderes en Valencia del movimiento libertario. Perdida la guerra, organizó un grupo clandestino de resistencia.
La libertaria Isabel Mesa Delgado murió el pasado lunes. Pocos la conocen por ese nombre, el auténtico, porque desde 1941 fue a todos los efectos Carmen Delgado Palomares, nombre con el que esquivó a la justicia franquista, que la había condenado a dos penas de muerte por colaborar en la edición de un periódico de la resistencia y por su actividad libertaria. Uno de sus últimos deseos fue reivindicar su verdadero nombre, el cual, en letras grandes, quedó estampado en la bandera anarquista que envolvió su ataúd. Carmen, ya para siempre Isabel Mesa, se fue como quería, compartiendo con sus amigos un último canto a las barricadas.
Isabel Mesa fue la secretaria de la agrupación local de Mujeres Libres en Valencia, la primera organización feminista con sentido de clase en España, dicen los historiadores. La federación nacional de esta organización, afín a la CNT, se constituyó en Valencia en 1937 y allí estuvo ella, que hacía poco que había llegado a la capital republicana. Porque Isabel era de muchos sitios: de Ronda, donde nació y pronto marchó porque a su padre, significado sindicalista anarquista, nadie le daba trabajo; de Ceuta, donde por su corta edad y por ser mujer tuvo problemas para conseguir el carné de la CNT (el número 1 del gremio de la aguja) y donde movilizó a moras y blancas por un salario digno para todas; de Málaga, donde llegó en un falucho -como las pateras de ahora- en 1936 , huyendo de una represión que empezaba y a la que le vería la cara muchas veces en el transcurso de sus 88 años de vida.
Perdida la guerra, intentó huir a Argelia por el puerto de Alicante, pero como otros miles de republicanos se quedó en tierra, esperando unos barcos que no llegaron. Logró escapar de los nacionales haciéndose pasar por uno de ellos y se fue a pie, siguiendo las vías del tren, hasta Almería. De allí a Málaga, a resistir, a no dejar que doblegaran sus sueños y sus ideas. Ni aunque la condenaran a muerte en rebeldía.
Así llegó a Valencia de nuevo en1941, con otro nombre y ahora para siempre. Sin miedo y con ilusión para organizar junto con otras mujeres, la mayoría libertarias, un grupo clandestino (la Unión de Mujeres Demócratas). Allí estaba, sobre todo, Maruja Lara, su otro yo desde que cayeron en la misma casa en 1937 y hasta la muerte. Llegaron a ser unas 40 mujeres, de distinta tendencia ideológica. Cada domingo se reunían en la vieja feria de muestras, en el paseo de la Alameda, gracias a que el compañero de Amelia Torres (la hermana del ex alcalde Domingo Torres) les dejaba entrar sin hacer preguntas. Buscaban comida y ayuda para los presos de los cárceles franquistas y sus familias e intentaban mantener viva la esperanza en los duros y grises días de la posguerra. «He visto discutir por una cáscara de plátano y cómo nos paraban los santos delante de la puerta a los que nos consideraban rojos y ateos», le relató Isabel, entonces Carmen, a este periodista hace menos de dos años. Isabel y Maruja se sublevaron al miedo, compraron una máquina de escribir y con ella, de noche, componían las octavillas clandestinas del grupo. Para que ningún vecino las descubriera, una niña cantaba y su voz ocultaba el martilleo de las teclas. Su quiosco, el que montaron después de que el taller de costura que tenían no pudiera defenderse de las fábricas grandes, fue almacén de donde salieron juguetes que alegraron las fiestas de muchos hijos de presos. Por aquella trastienda de la calle Uruguay pasaron muchos valencianos -alguno incluso con sotana- para hojear la prensa libre y anarquista.
«Había mucho miedo», cuenta Maruja, y muy poca libertad, y el grupo se disolvió en 1953, el mismo año que Franco firmaba el concordato con el Vaticano y el pacto con Estados Unidos.
Isabel, que nunca había estado presa, pasó ocho días de tortura en la comisaría de la calle Samaniego -conocida por su brutalidad- en 1956. Recuerda Maruja que dieron alojamiento a un compañero perseguido y éste cometió la imprudencia de escribir a su mujer. La carta fue interceptada e Isabel, que figuraba como inquilina, detenida. «Si yo estoy viva, aún vive la CNT», narra la historiadora Pilar Molina, de la Fundación Salvador Seguí (prepara una biografía de Isabel), que le replicó al policía que le dijo que la CNT ya había desaparecido.
«Me pegó tal guantazo -recordó Isabel hace unos años en el libro Perder la guerra de José María Azkárraga-, que cuando salí el taxista les preguntó "¿a ésta dónde la llevo a su casa o al cementerio?"».
La vigilaron mucho tiempo, pero con los años la cosa fue a menos y, cuando el dictador murió y las libertades fueron más un derecho que una palabra, Isabel y Maruja sacaron de la trastienda los periódicos de la CNT. Después ayudaría a la creación de nuevos foros libertarios, como Radio Klara o el ateneo Al Margen. Cualquier cronista de los últimos años de esta ciudad la recuerda en un encuentro de viejos resistentes, con su bandera tricolor, aquella que ella y Maruja bordaron en los 40 para Mujeres Demócratas.
