Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers!

En 2011, Ben Morea —figura clave de la contracultura norteamericana de los sesenta— aparece en Madrid en un encuentro organizado por La Felguera Editores. Han pasado cuarenta años desde que su rastro se perdiera en las montañas de Nuevo México.

En 1966 fundó la publicación underground Black Mask, en la que se mezclaba arte y anarquismo. En torno a ella, se formó un grupo de afinidad bautizado como Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers! Sus acciones se radicalizaron progresivamente en consonancia con la lucidez de unos planteamientos que trazaban un camino propio en un momento dominado por los hippies y las organizaciones políticas de nueva izquierda.

Ellos lucían navajas y armas de fuego en el Lower East Side de Nueva York. Estaban preparados para algo más.
