IN DEFENSE OF FREEDOM
Durruti, the well known Catalonian Anarchist and Troop Leader on the Aragon Front, gave his views to a representative of the newspaper "C.N.T." of which we quote the following.—
The enemy is now throwing all his resources into the attack on Madrid. But that doesn't mean that the enemy position has improved. On the contrary the pressure which we are exerting against the Fascists on the Catalonian and Levantine Fronts, is increasing daily. Do the Fascists what they will, Huesca, Sarragossa and Terruel will soon fall into our hands. When this happens, the Fascists will have lost the war. These three points are of great strategic value. With their fall, the whole enemy front from Calatayud to Burgos will collapse and his offensive action in the Sierras be greatly hindered.
Here we can put an army of 100,000 men into the field. Oviedo is in a critical position and when the Asturias are free of Fascists, the Asturian comrades who fought so bravely in 1934, known what they owe to their brothers in Castile and Galicia. Granada and Cordova too are in desperate plight and the enemy hopes to save the situation by the capture of Madrid. Their whole mind is set on taking the Spanish Capital.
The resistance to Fascism cannot be organised by words but by the taking up of strong positions. The shovel and the axe are as valuable as the gun. Countless idlers and wastrels are living in Madrid. They must all be mobilised. Our strength on the Aragon Front consists above all in constructing new entrenchments immediately after each new advance however small. Our militiamen know well their cause depends on never retreating from any attack. The comrades of my columns withstand every attack without flinching or yielding.
