Death[edit]

According to Anthony Beever, the sniper story really is a myth: "The cocking handle of a companion's machine pistol caught on a car door, firing ino his chest."radek 01:11, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

This is almost certainly also a myth. The truth will, sadly, never be known.

Abel Paz' book has a complete overview of all the different theories, and that's his conclusion. Worth the read if you can stomach a lot of ideological cant... of a different (namely, old style anarchist) school than usual. 79.233.50.96 (talk) 16:04, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

I have read that Durriti was killed for political reasons by the Communists...but I have only one source for this (Arnaud Imatz). Are there others? 99.240.142.65 (talk) 22:58, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

If there are differing versions of Durruti's death then these should be presented as such without taking sides. The way the article is worded now one version is given as definitive, one version is presented as a "lie", and another version is presented as a "claim". This is an obvious POV problem and should be edited so that the article provides an objective presentation of differing accounts with the sources clearly given without prejudice for or against any version (unless, of course, further evidence can be brought to bear that clearly favors or disfavors one or more versions). --Durruti36 (talk) 20:36, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

I always heared that the shot came from his own machine pistol, when he was going out of the car — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.156.92.214 (talk) 00:38, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Political/philosophical views.[edit]

It would be useful to add a section on this. Yes, we know he's an anarcho-syndicalist, but specifics would be very useful. Very few anarchists can have their views summed up simply by the general ideology. Zazaban (talk) 22:20, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Very few anarchists had to take up arms to defend themselves and their comrades while being shot at by fascists in 1936. Very many refer to this period, which remains poorly referenced. If you do not know the history of the Spanish Revolution, of the Spanish Civil War, you cannot begin to write the history of Durruti. Tothebarricades (talk) 00:25, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
