'Accidental Death of an Anarchist' a true-life poke at authority

'Accidental Death of an Anarchist' a true-life poke at authority

From The Press Democrat, California

from anarchists worldwide

In these days a new nightmare is spreading: the contagion from the so-called Coronavirus.

This piece has finally arrived. Juan had mentioned it in his letters. We thought it had been censored. In fact it was confirmed that on 4th October 2019 an investigating judge seized it as he considered it “instigation to commit a crime” or some form of incitement to “anarchist activity” and seized it in order to protect the forces of order.
