Gran Canaria. Spain. The Federación Anarquista de Gran Canaria or FAGC celebrates its 10 years of existence this month. In the past Organise Magazine already translated a series of articles written by them outlining their ideological approach in what they call “neighbourhood anarchism”. But to celebrate this anniversary we decided to translate a summary of their history in these 10 years where they went from disrupting speeches by reforminist unions during the 15M square occupations to being the single entity in Gran Canaria that has facilitated more houses for people.

A glimpse into the elsewhere of an upturning so great that it is unimaginable, where certainties are swept away in an instant and life itself takes on a fragile intensity. These accounts contain a grain of everything it is possible to foresee of the ultimate fight for freedom and other aspects that could never have been dreamt in our worst nightmares.

A reflection on spain’s 15M, a reflection whose resonances extend beyond the limits of that country.Continue reading Amador Fernández-Savater: 15M in the spanish labyrinth
Spain’s 15M was a dream, it was the feeling that the world could be changed, it was the spaces and the times of assemblies, in which new worlds were created and imagined by an untameable many, the many who awoke to their voices and bodies; it was enthusiastic friendship, joy, and dedicated work.Continue reading Spain’s 15M: The passion of rebellion
