“I am not a miliciano, but I have been to Russia, where I experienced the revolution and was able to observe the way in which the anarchists were liquidated (at this point the comrade summarised the Makhnovist movement). I have been in Spain for the past eight months, and I know that as long as we have weapons in our hands, everything is possible.”
