Written by a member of the Iron Column, an Anarchist militia unit made up entirely of liberated ex-prisoners, which fought with great distinction in defence of the Spanish Civil War and Revolution of 1936-1939. More than a discussion of the politics of militarisation and control, it’s a hymn to freedom and a tribute to those who fight for it.

“I am an escaped convict from San Miguel de los Reyes, that sinister prison, which the monarchy set up in order to bury alive those who, because they weren’t cowards, would never submit to the infamous laws dictated by the powerful against the oppressed.”
