Lucio Urtubia Anarchist and Mason 1/9

Lucio Urtubia Jiménez (born 1931 in Cascante, Navarre) is a Spanish anarchist famous for his practice of expropriative anarchism. At times compared to Robin Hood, Urtubia carried out bank robberies and forgeries throughout the 1960s and 1970s. In the words of Albert Boadella, “Lucio is a Quijote that did not fight against wind mills, but against a true giant”.

A documentary on Urtubia’s life, directed by the Basque film directors José María Goenaga and Aitor Arregi has been released in 2009.
