On the Lam with Bank Robber Enric Duran
by Nathan Schneider, Vice, April 7, 2015

Others move to Calafou, a “postcapitalist ecoindustrial colony” in the ruins of a century-old factory town, which Duran and a few others purchased after he found it for sale on the internet. (Further details about Calafou cannot appear here because VICE does not publish under an open license, a requirement the colony’s assembly has for press wishing to cover it.) Not far from there, a group of anarchists runs a bar and a screen-printing studio in a building that once belonged to the CNT, the anarcho-syndicalist union that ran collectivized factories and militias during the civil war of the 1930s, orchestrating what is almost assuredly the modern world’s largest experiment in functional anarchy.
