A Crime Called Freedom
Writings of Os Cangaceiros Vol. I
Os Cangaceiros & Wolfi Landstreicher (trans.) 2006 164p 4 x 7
Os Cangaceiros was a group of delinquents caught up in the spirit of the French insurrection of 1968 who refused to let that spirit die. With nothing but contempt for the self-sacrificial ideology practiced by “specialists in armed struggle”, this uncontrollable band of social rebels wreaked havoc on the French state—attacking infrastructures of oppression, supporting popular revolts, stealing and releasing secret blueprints for high-tech prisons, raiding the offices of corporate collaborators, and creating their lives in complete opposition to the world based on work. Essays include critiques of industrialization, work, and the prison industry (along with a couple of communiques sent to prison architects after they beat them).
