He had no intention of repaying the debts, and used the money to finance various post-capitalist movements as a civil disobedience action. In September 17 2008, Duran released both an article entitled “I have “robbed” 492,000 euros from those who rob us the most, in order to denounce them and build alternatives for society”. This was published in the free magazine Crisis, in Catalan, of which 200,000 copies were printed and distributed by volunteers throughout Catalonia. A second newspaper, We can! Live Without Capitalism was distributed on March 17, 2009, and a third, on September 17, 2009.

Stella Strega


Coming up to half a century old now, Stella was a scientist, youthworker and artist, then social activist, experienced community organizer and counselor long before she discovered permaculture, in 1992.

But as soon as these rivers of experience came together she started doing permaculture in her home and neighbourhood, which later became the Green Adventure urban permaculture project that she coordinated from 1995 to 1999 and was awarded several national prizes. All this time she has deepening her study and practical understanding of Permaculture – both the design science and the movement, and especially in empowering and educating people about sustainability, and proving that we can change our enviroment, together.

In 1999 Stella took a sabbatical position in La Palma, in the Canary Islands, to help set up a new permaculture project there. After working with many rural projects, learning to grow food on a larger scale and to speak spanish (a language she had always loved) she decided to stay on the Island and set up a 5 year action-research experiment in permaculture action-learning, in order to better understand how to support people in applying this crucial design science to the real world, much more effectively, especially for designing themselves much more coherent, ethical and satisfying lives. During this time she also coordinated the setting up NodoEspiral starting in 2004, which later became the Integral Permaculture Academy.

From 2006 she has been designing and building the infrastructure of what in 2011 became the 8thLife eco-village project, where she lives and continues living her passion for intensive integral permaculture design action-research and learning.
