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.
