(en) Czech, Ostrava Anarchists OAF: Petr Kropotkin left, Abel Paz was born [machine translation]

Date Sun, 21 Feb 2021 11:56:13 +0200

Anarcho-communist theorist Petr Kropotkin is not the only important anarchist whose centenary we are commemorating this year. In the same year that the famous funeral of the "anarchist prince" took place, Abel Paz was born in Spain, who later put Kropotkin's ideas of libertarian communism into practice during the Spanish Civil War. ---- Abel Paz joined the anarchist movement as a teenager, becoming a member of the CNT's mass unions as a Barcelona textile worker. At the time of the social revolution, Paz became a member of the legendary Iron Column, which strongly opposed the entry of anarchist militants into the People's Front government. After the defeat of the revolution, he fled to French exile, where he joined the resistance against Nazi Germany.

Although he died at a respectable age in 2009, he still completed an anarchist lecture tour of Central European countries after the age of 80. In 2003 we had the opportunity to listen to him at a discussion in theBratislava V-club and in thePrague gallery NOD . As the participants at the time recalled, both discussions were very interesting and stimulating, and a generational and opinion gap was visible - for example, regarding the opinion of anarchists entering the government (according to Paz, there was no other option after the defeat of the revolution).

Abel Paz left us in particular an extensive biography of Buonaventura Durruti, a key figure in the Spanish Revolution and the author of the famous statement "we are not afraid of wreckage, we carry the new world in our hearts." Czech.
