The People Armed: a teaser

These two images are just a teaser for the international, multilingual film, text and photographic project, The People Armed: Anarchist Fighters Verbatim, of which I am the convening editor. This multimedia project will be contributed to by anarchist historians from across the world and will produce an online research tool consisting primarily of lengthy, unedited raw interviews with anarchist veterans from Europe, Latin America, North Africa, the Middle East and North America. At the top, I have just finished interviewing Marcello Ferrada de Noli, the anarchist theorist who laid down the military-political line for the Movimiento de Izquierda Revolucionaria / Movement of the Revolutionary Left (MIR) of Chile in 1965; the MIR went on to fight against Pinochet. Below, is the cover of Ferrada de Noli's memoirs, Rebeldes Con Causa, due out by Libertarian Books in Sweden later this year.
