PraxedisCover1Práxedis G. Guerrero, anarchist, militant, propagandist, poet and secretary to the ‘Junta Organizadora del Partido Liberal Mexicano’ was the first Mexican anarchist to give his life for Land and Liberty, when he was killed, at the early age of only 28, during an attack on the town of Janos, Chihuahua, in the early months of the Mexican Revolution. Together with Ricardo Flores Magón, Práxedis was one of the main animators of the early revolutionary attempts made by the P.L.M. to rid Mexico of its ageing and dictatorial ruler, Porfirio Díaz who, for forty years, had subjected the Mexican people to the most cruel despotism and slavery; and during the imprisonment of Ricardo Flores Magón, between 1907 and 1910, Práxedis took on this revolutionary task almost single-handed. Joining the P.L.M.’s Junta Organizadora in 1907 soon after its foundation. Práxedis not only became its most able and important ‘military’ organiser, but also a clear-sighted propagandist who contributed much to the anarchist ideas of the P.L.M. In his short but heroic life Práxedis translated the anarchism of theory into the anarchism of practical action.”
