Miguel Almereyda


French journalist and activist against militarism who was first an anarchist and then a socialist. He founded and wrote in the newspaper La Guerre sociale and the satirical weekly Le Bonnet rouge. During World War I (1914–18) he engaged in dubious business dealings that brought him considerable wealth. He became engaged in a struggle with right-wing forces, and was eventually arrested on the grounds of being a German agent. He died in prison on 14 August 1917 at the age of 34, almost certainly murdered. He was the father of the film director Jean Vigo.
