"War paralyzes your courage and deadens the spirit of true [humanity]. It degrades and stupefies with the sense that you are not responsible, that 'tis not yours to think and reason why, but to do and die,' like the hundred thousand others doomed like yourself. War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder."

We have serious internal problems, but we have a strong movement of squatting… we also have a strong culture of music, zines, books, information to share and relationships between areas that connect lots of different people. We have a web." - Mario, an anarchist in Madrid interviewed recently by Jeremy Kay.
