This is an interview published by the Croatian anarchist/activist Marko Strpic in his zine In Media Res halfway the 90s with bros. Santiago (guitarist) & Federico ‘Fede’ Gómez (vocalist). At that time they were in the Israeli band ‘Nekhei Natzaa’ (brothers Ion & Oded Tal did bass and drums in the beginning). By the end of the century these would turn into ‘Dir Yassin’, a band that toured Europe. They visited me around that time. The anarchist brothers were always outspokenly in favour of the rights of the Palestian people to have their own land/state. The band’s discography includes a 7″ (Renounce Judaism) & LP (Hail The New Regime) on (the American label) Beer City recs (’94 & ’97) and a 7″ (Blue And White Carthage) with recordings from ’97 but released in 2003 on a German label.
Marko Strpic reported on the war in his country at the time. He was one of the people that helped establish the ‘Autonomna Tvornica Kulture‘ (Autonomous Cultural Factory) in Zagreb and some of his writings also ended up in the newsletter published by the Zagreb Anarchist Movement. Like myself, he distributed anarchist literature – nowadays he’s an editor/publisher and runs the bookstore (new & used) called ‘Sto Citas?’ (What Are You Reading?).
