The Friends of Durruti Group: 1937 - 1939

The Friends of Durruti Group: 1937 - 1939

By Augustin Guillanón

This is the story of a group of anarchists engaged in the most thoroughgoing social and economic revolution of all time. Essentially street fighters with a long pedigree of militant action, they used their contemporary analysis of the Spanish Revolution. In doing so they laid down essential markers for all future revolutionaries. This study - drawing on interviews with participants and synthesizing archival information - is the definitive text on these unsung activists.

'Revolutions without theory fail to make progress. We of the 'Friends of Durruti' have outlined our thinking, which may be amended as appropriate in great social upheavals but which hinges upon two essential points which cannot be avoided. A program, and rifles'. -El Amigo del Pueblo No. 5, July 20, 1937.
