An Anarchist Guide to… Christmas
Kropotkin thought that we could all pose as Santa Claus. On the edge of one page Kropotkin writes: ‘Infiltrate the stores, give away the toys!
Faint remnants on the back of a postcard read:
On the night before Christmas, we’ll all be about
While the people are sleeping, we’ll realise our clout
We’ll expropriate goods from the stores, ‘cos that’s fair
And distribute them widely, to those who need care.

Kropotkin pensaba que podíamos pasar por Santa Claus. En el borde de una página escribió: ¡Infiltrarse en las tiendas, regalar los juguetes!

En el borroso mensaje de una tarjeta navideña que remitió, se lee:
"En la noche antes de Navidad, estaremos todos prestos.
Mientras las personas están durmiendo, haremos valer nuestra presencia.
Expropiaremos bienes de los almacenes, porque eso es justo.
Y distribuirlos ampliamente, entre los que necesitan ayuda."
