By Os Cangaceiros (author) Wolfi Landstreicher (translator)

Os Cangaceiros used to be a bunch of delinquents stuck up within the spirit of the French rebel of 1968 who refused to permit that spirit die. With not anything yet contempt for the self-sacrificial ideology practiced through "specialists in armed struggle", this uncontrollable band of social rebels wreaked havoc at the French country - attacking infrastructures of oppression, assisting well known revolts, stealing and freeing mystery blueprints for high-tech prisons, raiding the workplaces of company collaborators, and developing their lives in entire competition to the realm in response to paintings. This quantity, translated by means of Wolfi Landstreicher, is the 1st immense selection of the writings of Os Cangaceiros in English.

We have described the beginning of a process that is now reaching its completion: the labor movement is definitively integrated into civil society, and a new project of industrial domestication is underway.

Around 1830, a sector of the poor took on the role of spokespeople for this promise, demanding that “men who have been made inferior be given their dignity as citizens” (Proudhon).
