Report by Anarchists on the Revolt in Chile: November 29-December 6

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

November 29th
42nd Social Revolt Day

LONG LIVE IRREDUCTIBLE ENEMIES OF POWER!

“We are facing a powerful and implacable enemy, who does not respect anything or anyone. He doesn’t respect the lives of human beings, he doesn’t respect our heroes.” The phrase is repeated again and again by the President of the Republic, this time at an early graduation of police.

FEAR is one of the most powerful weapons of power, so it continues to encourage a climate of paranoia to demobilize and divide the oppressed.

The State redoubled its efforts to approve its “Anti-hooded Law.” Piñera points to Anarchists, Barras Bravas [organized supporters of football teams] and drug traffickers as a coordinated trident that unleash violence.

The media plan is to exacerbate the coverage of looting of small stores. The capitalist press launches a powerful emotional charge to delegitimize the Social Revolt.

There is an obvious complicity (by action or omission) between the police, home owners and traffickers, individuals without codes who are not interested in those who are harmed by their actions.

Undoubtedly, private property is part of what we want to destroy, but today our objectives are full of strategic symbolism. If the attack on any premises needs explanation, it is not symbolic enough.

A provisional solution would be “self-defense committees,” but our inexperience and ineffectiveness in these practices allow the “yellow vests” to begin to arm themselves with an undeniable fascist affinity. Let the militia return to the street! It is the speech repeated by the lovers of the neoliberal system, although in their pockets the bills have always shone by their absence. (more…)

Smartphones, Ringtones, Capital

“I believe that within the next generation the masters of the world will discover that childhood conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient tools for governing than batons and prisons, and that their lust for power can be completely satisfied by inspiring people to love their slavery, instead of crushing them and reducing them to obedience”.
Aldous Huxley, letter to George Orwell of October 21, 1949

Half a century ago, Piazza Fontana. The start of the so-called strategy of tension. A bomb exploded inside a crowded bank, just a few steps from the Cathedral of Milan. Over one hundred victims are dead and wounded, a massacre of blood-letting perpetrated in order to spread fear, terror and anguish throughout the country, to trigger the conditioned reflexes of Order. To sow a panic such as to justify, if not to invoke, the intervention of the State (also through its armed wing of police, also by suspending some liberties taken for granted).

Half a century after Piazza Fontana, we are in a full strategy of relaxation. After the bombs, the smartphone. After the blood, the ringtones. Millions of hyper-connected people, a massacre of neurons carried out in order to spread the entertainment, amusement and satisfaction that’s necessary to neutralize the unconditional reflection of revolt. To sow a distraction such as to legitimise, if not naturalise, the presence of the State (even of its armed wing of the law, even of the suspension of some liberties taken for granted).

War on Kids – You do not have a Personality Disorder…

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Download this text: PDF

Your counsellors, teachers, parents, doctors, and other cops have told you that your personality is wrong and that you are not functioning properly. We think they are wrong and that they and the world system are the ones that are not functioning properly.

School is an abusive, boring prison designed to break your spirit and keep you in ignorance. If you are bored and disruptive at school, it’s because the teachers are boring, the subject matter is dull and school is a cage. They only teach you what the government wants you to know. There’s loads of interesting stuff to learn, but you probably won’t learn it at school. (more…)

On the upcoming trial in Lisbon concerning events in 2007 (Portugal)

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

On the 25th of April 2007 happened in Lisbon an anti-authoritarian demo against fascism and capitalism. Close to 500 people took part on a march through one of the city’s richest areas, where paint was thrown at shops, banks and a riot cop van and slogans were spray painted on walls. To this shamelessness the guards of democratic order replied with a police charge and beatings against the demonstrators and everyone who were passing-by. (more…)
