In the depths of night on the Catalonia land,
There breeds an army on the stateless sand. 
Warning the Franco forces to enter if they dare, 
Knowing that this is different, a workers revolt.
Adamantly opposing the very policies they withhold,
Standing in the front lines, ready & stout. 
A debacle has emerged between the state & them, 
A time of revolution, supported by 10 million. 
Behind the scenes, there lays an agrarian success, 
The commune of the people, a libertarian's dream.
For three years straight the people gathered together
As the war waged on, though people were before the profit.
A territory run by vouchers, employment given to all, 
A society of equals, an equal society. 
The liberated zones of the citizenry rule, 
A system of true justice, bureaucracy was a myth.
Even though they were eventually defeated, 
And their system dwells only in their memories.
The struggle will still move on in the hearts of the people. 
A dream that shall never be forgotten. 
This was truth; 
This was justice; 
This was freedom;
This was Anarchy.
Long live, Comrades. 
For it will become reality once again.
