From Conflict Minnesota, Anonymous submission to Conflict Minnesota
On some recent sunny evenings in south Minneapolis, an advertised reading group met to discuss the book Joyful Militancy. One of the discussions was framed with a question posed by the book: “How do we create situations where we feel more alive and capable than before?”
Sharing a feature-length documentary on G.A.R.I. (Revolutionary Internationalist Action Groups), which carried out a number of attacks against the Franco regime. Most famously, they kidnapped a banker, demanding freedom for anarchist prisoners in Spain.
The film, created by the child of two G.A.R.I. members, features interviews with those involved, alongside animated re-enactments, centering largely upon the kidnapping.

We are happy to present our latest work, The Great Anarchist Conspiracy, a documentary that charts anarchism’s resilient survival from the 1890s all the way up the 1970s. The fact that you are reading this, and are most likely an anarchist, is proof that our international movement has survived every attempt to crush it. Against impossible odds, and without wielding state power, the anarchist movement continues to spread across the planet, even as you read this.

If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.
