Antonio Morillo, an anarcho-syndicalist related to cleaning section of the Madrid Metro, died at home before he reached the age of 40, leaving behind a 4-year-old daughter and the love of your life.

We would like to remember this comrade who was always firm and combative in the fight against the bosses. “There can be no social peace until workwomen and workmen emancipation is achieved”

Tribute to Eduardo Colombo

Today, March 13th, the sad note of the death of Eduardo Colombo strikes us painfully. With Eduardo, not only disappears a dear and fraternal compañero, but also a first-rate thinker and a militant anarchist of unshakeable convictions.

Jack Stevenson passed away on Easter Sunday. An electrician by trade, and a keen gardener of vegetables on his allotment, Jack was prominent among London anarchists and in the 1960s. Among other achievements, he was the founder, treasurer, and inconspicuous donor to the Sit-Down-Or-Pay-Up fund, which subsidised legal expenses and fines of supporters of the Committee of One Hundred anti-bomb campaign, mostly charged with obstructing traffic.

An Unyielding Anarchist, Author, and Rebel

From Crimethinc

We’re saddened to announce the passing of Paul Z. Simons, longtime anarchist, journalist, and author. Paul was an anarchist writer with a playful spirit, an uncompromising love of life, and equally uncompromising hatred for authority—be it from the right or the left. We treasure our memories of Paul. His presence will be sorely missed.

Our close comrade Paul Z Simons (PZS, el errante, etc) has passed away from an apparent heart attack. He is survived by his 5 children, Nina, Hannah Simons, Max Errickson, and Tristan and Jack Simons.

He was born in Utah. He liked to say he was born an illegal, to an unwed mother, Ginger, in a state where is was a crime to have a child outside of wedlock. He was adopted by Daryl and Irene Simons at birth. He has 4 siblings, Steve and Robert Simons, and James and Elizabeth Ables.

Portugal: Viva Javier Recabarren, anarchist!

He roamed the streets of Santiago do Chile with full conviction of what he felt, against a terrorist police, against a society that mistreats and tortures human beings and other animals. His deep revolt against the grids of cages and prisons arose directly from his heart. Wild and free, he wandered his brief anarchist life like a comet, bright with love and rebellion. The comrade Javier Recabarren dies, ran over by a killing machine in the same street where he fought so many times (18 mars 2015). An indomitable wisdomof the acracy ran through his veins, in a young 11-years-old body!

Rest in Power Anna

Our hearts are heavy with sadness today as this weekend we learned of the death of our friend and comrade, Anna Campbell.

Anna was killed in a missile strike in Afrin while fighting with the YPG.

Anna was a core member of the Empty Cages Collective and an active organiser in many anti-prison projects and campaigns, including Community Action on Prison Expansion, Smash IPP as well as Bristol Anarchist Black Cross. She made organising a joy.

She was a dedicated anarchist deeply committed to fighting for liberation. Her list of engagement in social struggles is long, from hunt sabotage to student occupations. She was a passionate feminist and proudly queer.

Eduardo Colombo 1929-2018: A Grand Anarchist Fighter Leaves Us

I was sad to hear of the passing of Eduardo Colombo, one of the more interesting anarchist writers from the post-World War II era. I included a short piece by Colombo on voting in Volume Three of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas. I also posted on this blog his essay on the state as the paradigm of power, in which he drew on the work of Cornelius Castoriadis and Pierre Clastres. Here I reproduce a tribute to Colombo by the Spanish anarchist theorist, Tomás Ibáñez. It would be nice to see more of Colombo’s writings translated into English.

From The Free (Tuesday, March 06, 2018)
Haukur Hilmarsson was 32 years old. He was assassinated by the Turkish forces invading Syria in Efrín.

He was part of the Revolutionary Union for Internationalist Solidarity. This group was founded by Greek anarchists in 2015 and is one of the militias of the International Liberation Brigade that helps Yekîneyên Parastinê Gel (Unidades de Defensa Popular, YPG) in its struggle against Arab imperialism, Turkish and Islamic fundamentalism.
