By birth.  Nature points to the soldiers of life the place where they have to fight for it. Blas Infante

In keeping with tradition

Durutti – 15 September 1932 Barcelona sums up the challenge thrown down by the anarchists:

‘The Republican-Socialists need to understand this and so we’ll say it very clearly: either the Republic resolves the peasants and industrial workers’ problems or the people will do so on their own. But can the Republic resolve those and other pressing problems? We don’t want to deceive anyone and will reply firmly, so that the entire working class hears us: neither the Republic nor any political regime of the sort – with or without the Socialists – will ever resolve the workers’ problems. A system based on private property and the authority of power cannot live without slaves. And if the workers want to be dignified, to live freely and control their own destinies, then they shouldn’t wait for the government to give them their liberty. Economic and political freedom is not something given; it has to be taken. It depends on you, the workers listening to me, whether you’ll continue being modern slaves or free men! You must decide!’

Welcome to the rogues gallery, it’s just a collection of pictures.  I like them, some of them I have taken, others I have stumbled across.

Took this one on a mobile phone one night we were on our way to the now legendary Dragon on Berry Street in Liverpool to dj.  For me it kinda sums up a particular period in time.  A whole scene was born in one of the smallest venue’s in the city.  Week in week out a collection of dj’s and punters wore big smiles in one of the most non-threatening and happening environments around.  Happy days indeed.

A bubble in Barcelona, simple as that really.

Robots have metal hearts, be wary of vocational training.  A world populated by competent functionaries is a dying world.  Taken in a toilet in Barcelona.
