Reading group #5

This month we’ve decided to take a break from the reading (those Situationists were hard..) and instead we will watch No Gods No Masters: A History of Anarchism which is available on youtube in three parts:

Watch the film in your own time and then come to the reading group at Freedom Bookshop, 7pm 18th September to discuss!

    Only seen part 3. A few really silly mistakes. Durruti was not shot with a rifle, autopsy recovered a single 9mm largo (bergmann-bayard). If you’re sat in a car with a gun, you don’t need a safety catch you need to mind what you’re doing. Emma Goldman never fought in Catalunya – in the pub maybe? The IBs didn’t reinforce the militia columns on the Aragon front – that would have been handy!

    Why do some anarchists perpetuate the myth that the workers were defeated in the May events? The defence committees won the battle easily, then stood down on the advice of the CNT ministers. The assault guards would never have made it to Barcelona had they not been allowed through.
