God Only Knows What Devils We Are

Memoir and critique; why we don the black mask and act collectively against the targets of capital and state.

“To counteract [leftist] silencing, we sought out our comrades from the heart of the black bloc and asked them to tell their side of the story: where they come from, why they participate, how they see the world. We do not accept the terms set by the mudslingers: our intent is not to compete for ideological legitimacy on a battlefield of abstractions, but to foster mutual understanding grounded in personal experience. As the expression goes, God only knows what devils we are: He can’t know anything else.”

Interview from Segovia Prison with the Autonomous Groups

Revealing interview with comrades imprisoned in Spain in the late 1970s for expropriations from banks.  They were part of the global phenomenon of “diffuse urban guerrilla” – extremists who found themselves outside of the Marxist-Leninist groups (RAF, Red Brigades, etc.) due to their radical critique and refusal of spectacular violence.
