The life and crimes of anarchist bricklayer, Lucio Urtubia


This week, we spend the whole show talking to legendary anarchist counterfeiter Lucio Urtubia. While I was touring with END:CIV this summer, I stopped by his pad in Paris to share a bottle of wine and talk about his life as a revolutionary criminal. You can watch a biopic about his life here.

    My man! I think you put me onto this guy when we met in BCN. Anyway, cracking story (people check it out), so from one exile to another and to all those that can never go home, keep it real.

    Great interview! Loved the quote at the end.

    Why does the video cut off, I don’t have emoney, but I have a real desire to keep anarchist history alive,….

    IT’S JUST PAPER!

  • billy badazz says:

    Have you considered the 1983 television series V for dramatized footage of resistance? All paper money is fake. Gold is no alternative since it gives money to rich land owners. We must realize the power of our own hands. All the things we use were made by either nature or human hands. Money does not make anything, hands do. We must find a way to motivate our hands without the need for fake pieces of monopoly money.

    Loved the interview with this TRUE Revolutionary figure, whom I may never have known about without yourself (Mr. Stimulator)!

    Having trouble navigating your now-grandiose website, but I’ll figure it out. I do miss simply hitting my link to the site on my desktop and letting the anarchy fly, though. Keep it up, though!

    Much Love,
    McCarty

  • […] “The banks are the real crooks,” says Lucio Urtubia decisively. “They exploit you, take your money and cause all the wars.” Lucio had no moral scruples about forging Citybank travellers’ cheques. His motivation was not his own gain, but to dent confidence in this powerful financial institution. He was arrested for this and ended up in prison, but soon got back on his feet. ‘Forged in Rebellion’ is an engaging portrait of the anarchist Lucio Urtubia, born in Northern Spain in 1931, and who deserted from the Francoist army, working as a tiler in Paris, where he immersed himself in the world of the Spanish exiles. It was a meeting with the legendary Quico Sabaté (1915-1960) that put Lucio on the anarchist path, whereby his talents as a forger of identity papers and currency came in particularly useful. His anarchist nature is revealed in this highly particular, free-flowing memoir, a lively ‘cops and robbers’ story in which — according to the best traditions — the true scale of Lucio’s role is never completely revealed. It is also the impassioned inside story of an unequal war waged by a genuine modern day Robin Hood from the Sherwood Forest of Lucio’s thousand safehouses and hideouts around Paris as he robs the rich and helps the needy: in the latter case the story comes to an exemplary conclusion, with a solemn peace treaty, the sort signed between great powers. But above all else, what must be seen in these pages is a living document that turns the historical spotlight on to a specific time and place and recounts a singular life story which is at the same time — as all human lives are — the story of many lives.
