In this episode of Guerrilla History, we bring on a very special guest, Margrit Schiller! Margrit was associated early on with the Red Army Faction, before being imprisoned and tortured by the West German state, being forced into exile in Cuba and Uruguay, and then having to move back to Germany more or less against her will. A fascinating life story from someone just as committed to the struggle as ever!
Margrit Schiller is author of Remembering the Armed Struggle: My Time with the Red Army Faction. We highly recommend picking yourself up a copy from PM Press (https://pmpress.org/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1195). Margrit’s struggles within and against this system continue, and grabbing a copy of her book is a good way to help while we are still forced to operate within capitalism.
