Hi-profile attack against BBVA Bank in Santiago (Chile)
In the context of the April 14-21: International Week of Solidarity with the Imprisoned Chilean Anarchist Comrades, ‘Unknowns for the freedom of the prisoners’ have carried out an attack against BBVA Bank. Here below is the communique, from Culmine via War on Society:
21 April 2011
“In those moments in which we decide to locate our lives as a deed of propaganda and move to the attack on this prison society, we discover the complicity of the night as our unconditional lover, caressing every solidarity action of every one of the comrades who takes to assault the misery of everyday life that capitalism offers us everywhere in the world, and it is for this that we return to her to send a message of freedom to the prisoners, because we know that every cinder that flies from the flames of every barricade and burning ATM opens the door of every cell to embrace all of our imprisoned sisters and brothers on the planet, passing through the cracks in the walls to arrive at the dungeons where they remain sequestered.
The night of Thursday April 21st, at the end of the 60th DAY OF THE HUNGER STRIKE of those incarcerated and kidnapped for the “BOMBS CASE” FRAME-UP and without any response on the part of the State-Capital, a group of individuals armed with our hearts overflowing with the longing for freedom, some few pamphlets, hammers, gasoline and our indomitable and insurrectional dreams decided to disturb the social order and the complicit silence of the citizenry in the face of the abhorrent frame-ups of people struggling for freedom, attacking the BBVA branch at the intersection of Rodolfo Phillipi and Alameda in downtown Santiago, destroying its windows and then splashing gasoline to set it on fire, demonstrating to this disgusting society that we are more than commodities tradeable on the market and that the logics of money only reproduce themselves when one naturalizes them oneself.
Barricades were erected on the south side of Alameda obstructing traffic and pamphlets were thrown about the situation of our sister/brother prisoners and for their immediate freedom, (we want to make clear that at no time did we attack the public transport as the bourgeois press is misreporting — if we had, then some buses would have been destroyed), later a couple of slogans were shouted in solidarity with the prisoners of the bombs case and the traffic block was maintained for some minutes to facilitate the escape of the insurgents.
This action marking the final day of the “Week of Action and Propaganda for Freedom, from April 14 to 21. End to the imprisonment of the accused in the bombs case frame-up arrested August 14, 2010,” demonstrates that we are not afraid of their new research division called the Department of Public Order and that their supposed advances do nothing more than intensify the solidarity and the action of every rebel, that their policies to terrorize the population and criminalize social protest do not work and will not work, because the seeds of freedom are making fertile their new fruits and the diaspora of the insurgents has been undertaken everywhere as has been demonstrated with the solidarity actions in Italy, England, Greece, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Canada, Venezuela, Spain, throughout $hile and in many other places of the world, shouting that they cannot quiet our indomitable hearts.
It is necessary to make clear that every day is an opportunity to denounce the political-judicial frame-ups and the terrorism of the State, so they are very mistaken if they intend to implement their public control policies strategically on commemorative days, as every second that passes is an opportunity to assault the monotony of everyday life and to sharpen our ideas against the State-Capital.
We extend this message as a solidarity greeting to all the comrades imprisoned in the world from Bologna to Argentina, from Canada to Peru, from Bolivia to Greece, from France to Mexico and in every corner of the earth.
We will not stop until we see our sisters and brothers free and the frame-up has ended in total collapse, neither their repression nor their bars will silence us, we demand:
-IMMEDIATE FREEDOM TO THE ACCUSED FOR THE “BOMBS CASE” FRAME-UP
-NON-IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ANTI-TERRORIST LAW
-END TO THE PREVENTIVE DETENTION
-END TO THE ANTI-TERRORIST LAW AND ITS SECRET WITNESSES
-END TO THE ART. 7 CLAUSE 19 OF THE CONSTITUTION (UNANIMOUS VOTE REQUIRED FOR CONDITIONAL RELEASE)
-REVINDICATION OF PRISONERS’ RIGHTS
FOR THE GERM OF REVOLT TO SPREAD THROUGH ALL THE LAND, FREEDOM TO THE PRISONERS OF THE ABSURD “BOMBS CASE” FRAME-UP NOW!!!!
For fear to not destroy solidarity…
For solidarity to destroy prison…”
Unknowns for the freedom of the prisoners…
