by F. M. H. (en Castellano abajo)    Eleven members and supporters of the CNT went on trial in  the Criminal Court No. 4 of Zaragoza for squatting the old Hospice of San Jorge, in Padre Manjon Street, Zaragoza ,Delicias District from which they were evicted in February 2013 by the Police.

The Ministry of Labour, the property owner, asked for fines of 1,440 euros each for usurpation, while the prosecution that dropped charges against two of them when a police officer admitted they were not inside the building – asked  for 900 euros each..

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)

shut-the-bastards-down1Living Utopia is a unique documentary that blends the historical account of the origins and development of the Spanish anarchist movement, focussing on the 1936 war. 

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.

    Those lyrics at the end struck me to the core (1:33): “And now I’m going to sing to what has never existed, the dove of peace”.

    Since the dawn of “civilization”, with few exceptions, we have never been free, and we’ve constantly been at war. We’ve always been enslaved to some tyrant or oligarchs. We must never lose hope my friends, that we can finally be liberated. It’s our duty and our responsibility to struggle, lest the elites leave us without a planet and future for our descendants.

  • Where am I gonna find a group of people who still have the basic skills of survival, in a world where those are not taught in school? A group of people who haven’t been brainwashed into believing in “democracy” where you get a false choice and give away your power to a government who only pretends to serve its people?12M_BCN

  • “The Anarchists were still in virtual control of Catalonia and the revolution was still in full swing. To anyone who had been there since the beginning it probably seemed even in December or January that the revolutionary period was ending; but when one came straight from England the aspect of Barcelona was something startling and overwhelming. It was the first time that I had ever been in a town where the working class was in the saddle.” George Orwell – Homage to Catalonia page 4. From USⒶ

    Well, it’s not like it isn’t happening all over the world right now. We have the Zapatistas who are nearing the 20th anniversary of their struggle, the Recuperdad in Argentina, Greek Anarchists, anti-austerity protests in Spain, Common Ground Collective and Occupy Sandy in the U.S., Christiania in Denmark. There’s already a lot happening. Add to it. Nurture it. Make it grow and talk to others. Get them to think. Have you seen scot crow’s interview on RT?

  • Now if only that woman’s sadly incorrect assumption it had happened all over the world had been true, then we’d not be in the global shitstorm we’re in now8-6-06_greece_anarchists_students__001_
