He took active part in the revolutionary general strike of August 1917 and was expelled from the socialist union UGT for being too radical. ... Ramona recently joined the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN). She is twenty years old. ...
... On 15th November 1936 Durruti arrived with a force of 1800 men to reinforce the defense of Madrid, where they went immediately to the toughest section and on the 19th he was struck by a bullet as he walked by a supposedly secure area. He died at dawn the following day. ... She is going to continue with the struggle as long as is necessary, and hopes one day to live a free and dignified life in her village.
