‘His name is Enric Duran , but is known as ‘Robin Bank ‘ or ‘ Robin Hood of the Banks ‘ . This Catalan activist, 38 years old, came to illegally obtain half a million euros in bank loans which he then then divided among projects and anti-capitalist movements .
He was charged with several offenses and failed to appear at his trial. He had requested loans from banks with no intention of returning and distributed the cash to a whole range of alternative projects, integral cooperatives, occupied social centers and revolutionary anarchists. . In all, he performed 68 operations in 39 different entities. With dozens of personal loans , he managed to outwit information systems and financial control. Continue reading →
The united anti-capitalist Mayday march in Barcelona was cancelled half way through when the black block of the anarchist section began attacking banks and burning a rubbish container barricade.
The anarchist celebrations began in the morning with a big open air meeting and well organised communal lunch in the Macba square.
The cancellation of the march was half expected as the leftist parties had agreed beforehand to do so if there was trouble,(in case their political leaders should have their careers prejudiced). It left the way open for dozens of riot vans to charge in and 5 people were arrested. Continue reading →

Anarchist Lessons for the Zombie Apocalypse
I was in a med study when the zombie outbreak began. That’s right, a master’s degree in philosophy and the only way I could come up with to pay rent was to sell my still-living body to capitalist science. I know, I know… in retrospect I should have studied something useful, like small engine repair.
Oh, and I wasn’t just in any med study when the zombie outbreak began, I was in the med study where it began. The researchers were testing some kind of acne medication, looking to see if there were any adverse side effects when it was used on healthy adults. There were. Thanks, capitalist society, for pretty much ending the world.

Living Utopia (The Anarchists & The Spanish Revolution)
A unique feature-length documentary (90 minutes; Spanish with English subtitles) which chronicles the origins and evolution of the Spanish anarchist movement and its important role during the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939)
This documentary made in 1997 about the 1936 Spanish Revolution blends historical accounts of the development of the anarchist movement with first-hand testimonies.
A reflection on the philosophical underpinnings of such a movement and their practical application. As both an informative and inspiring piece of research it is considered a jewel amongst historians and rebel hearts.
Millions of peasants and urban workers successfully established a society based on equality, mutual aid, participatory democracy and self-organisation – all without a central state or government.
This fascinating yet largely unknown social experiment was eventually destroyed by forces from inside and outside the country.
