He reminds me of a song I once wrote.

"Gordillo's reputation as a modern-day Robin Hood has grown this summer after a series of "workers' marches" across southern Andalucía saw followers raid food from two supermarkets and hand it to the poor. Flash occupations of bank branches and an empty luxury country hotel have kept his small Andalucian Workers' Union in the headlines as debate rages about a style of direct action that attracts those seeking radical change to Spain's current diet of soaring unemployment, recession and harsh austerity.
"The right likes to make out that we are a dangerous bunch of criminals, a sort of modern Pancho Villa," bearded Gordillo said, his trademark Palestinian-style keffiyeh scarf hanging in immaculate folds. "But that is the same strategy as always. First they criminalise you and then they try to get rid of you." After more than half a dozen arrests over three decades spent fighting for the rights of landless Andalucian labourers, 60-year-old Gordillo will not be easily put off his latest crusade."

At least he's awakened as evident in his words.

"The situation is critical and I think there is now a chance of change. The system cannot resolve people's problems," said Gordillo.


Anarchy coming to a town near you soon.

I remember the first season I planted potatoes in my garden. 20 lbs of seed at 50 cents a pound yielded 410 lbs after sorting out the imperfections. I took 150 lbs to the Home Depot and gave them away. It took about 10 minutes to empty both burlap bags. I've never seen a home here in upstate New York that didn't have enough room to grow a year's supply of food for a family of 4. I'd estimate less than 5% of folks plant anything here. Humans seem to insist on living in disconnect with their food supply. I don't know how an individual can not feel shame to consume thousands of lbs of meat in their lifetime having never slit the throat of a living animal. Entitlement mentality yields no utility. The bankster waves have just begun. Hopefully there will be enough anarchists to help the survivors. Eventually they'll get hungry enough to be willing to help themselves.
