Chile: Actualización sobre el aislamiento que buscan imponer a lxs prisionerxs de la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad en el contexto del covid-19

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

El viernes 27 de Marzo la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad declaro el total aislamiento de los prisioneros que mantiene como rehén. La prohibición represiva con excusa de la cuarentena por el covid-19 incluía el fin de cualquier tipo de visita como también la eliminación de las encomiendas para lxs prisionerxs, cortando en la práctica cualquier contacto con el exterior como también dejándolos a a merced y dependencia de los carceleros y el Estado.

Rápidamente en medio de cuarentenas y restricciones para movilizarse por la ciudad se gestionaron distintas iniciativas para revertir las intenciones de sepultar a nuestrxs compañerxs. Desde adentro y afuera de los muros finalmente fue posible revertir parcialmente las medidas represivas y restrictivas del Estado carcelero.

Letter from an Anarchist Political Prisoner for Day of the Young Combatant in Chile

Tuesday, March 31st, 2020

These words of love and war go to Jhonny Cariqueo and his fireproof father.

I never met you in person Jhonny, I knew you were a compañero, an inhabitant of Pudahuel who like many young people went out at night to commemorate another year of the Day of the Young Combatant back there in 2008.

Minions can’t bear the insolence to challenge them, not even with words nor with homemade weapons, and they throw themselves to the wild charge entrusted in them by the state. They take you after an act in a square in your commune. I imagine those moments, screams, weapons to the head, immobility, looks of hatred between both sides. You were transferred with other brave ones to the dungeons of the sadistic 26th Police Station, beaten and humiliated by those that are only courageous for abuse but not for combat. They beat you, your heart clenches, you communicate it to your captors, they in their cruelty just ignore you and mock you. My spirit burns with rage at imagining this. They release you. I imagine you coming to your house, with yours worries, tiredness, the desire to sleep, your father’s love.

Spend the night and imagine that you felt bad, your chest clenches, without you wanting it, the dead woman’s hand takes you on the shoulder. You pass away cause of the beating at the police station and the lack of attention where your great heart stopped working. Compañero, the police MURDERED you and that will walk with us for the rest of life.

I attended your funeral, hugs between compas, faces of anger and pain, We made a basket and bought a flower crown. A diagonal red-black flag of Anarchy was designed, like your scream, like your rap, like your ideas. (more…)

Chile: Periódico Confrontación

Tuesday, March 31st, 2020

Desde agosto de 2019, la revista CONFRONTACIÓN ha estado en las calles pasándose de mano en mano, de compañerx a compañerx, propagándose en varias regiones de Chile gracias a voluntades solidarias que hacen posible que las ideas anárquicas/anti-autoritarias circulen y aporten a los procesos de liberación individual y colectiva.

Con un primer número en agosto y una edición especial en noviembre pasado, este 2020 comenzó para nosotrxs con la creación, impresión y distribución del segundo número (tercera entrega en la práctica) con dos mil ejemplares, el cual ha tenido una muy buena acogida entre lxs compañerxs, por lo que iremos subiendo de a poco a internet los artículos las ediciones en formato digital.

Porque la reproducción del orden de opresión y privilegios se ha impuesto a través de la historia por medio de la represión y la intoxicación de las mentes y de lxs cuerpxs por todo tipo de gobiernos, estamos por la CONFRONTACIÓN contra los enemigos de la libertad luchando por una vida sin Estados, leyes, constituciones ni autoridad.

Invitamos a todxs quienes deseen obtener y/o aportar a la distribución de la publicación impresa a que nos escriban a nuestro correo:

¡URGENTE! Aislamiento completo en la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad – Santiago ($hile)

Saturday, March 28th, 2020

El viernes 27 de marzo del 2020 la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad suspende de forma indefinida las visitas y encomiendas dejando en la práctica completamente aislados a los distintos presos que se encuentran rehenes del Estado. No podemos entender estas medidas de forma distinta a una
acción represiva que lejos de buscar una “cuarentena” o medidas sanitarias deja a nuestrxs compañerxs presos a merced de sus carceleros sin la posibilidad de comunicación ni ingresos de elementos básicos para la higiene y la subsistencia.

Recordemos que en esta prisión se encuentran secuestradxs cumpliendo condena Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Joaquín García, Mauricio Hernandez Norambuena y algunos prisionerxs de la revuelta.

Hoy la ciudadanía consigue “permisos de tránsito” para abarrotarse en los supermercados e ir a producir, aún en las comunas con cuarentena total.

¡No aceptamos este aislamiento total disfrazado de medida sanitaria!
¡No dejaremos que sepulten a nuestrxs compañerxs en prisión!

On Friday, March 27, 2020, the High Security Prison indefinitely suspends visits and parcels, effectively leaving the various prisoners who are hostages of the State completely isolated. We cannot understand these measures differently than another repressive action, that far from seeking a “quarantine” or sanitary measures, leaves our comrades imprisoned at the mercy of their jailers without the possibility of communication or an income of basic needs for hygiene and subsistence.

Let us remember that in this prison there are our kidnapped prisoners serving sentences such as Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Joaquín García, Mauricio Hernandez Norambuena and some prisoners of the revolt.

Today, citizens get “transit permits” to fill up in supermarkets and go to their jobs, even in districts with total quarantine.

We do not accept this total isolation disguised as a sanitary measure!
We will not let our comrades be buried in prison!

Santiago, Chile: Solidarity is the Virus that Capitalism Fears

Saturday, March 28th, 2020

A day of robberies in big chain stores to distribute to homeless people. Audio-visual material recorded in the streets of Santiago, $hile in times of quarantine and militarized curfew under the pretext of the Covid-19 virus.

Background music: Golpebalabeso/Niña Debacle/Paniko. Recorded in Chauri Chaura Studio.

All sanitary measures were taken to avoid harming the street people in terms of hygiene and viruses, but the use of white overalls is a gesture of rebellion and action against the power here in the territory governed by the $hilean state. Many high school students resist and attack the police in their jails-schools while wearing these clothes that the police hate and fear. Here is a video for those who didn’t know and to give some context.

Long live the violent war against authority and power!

As long as misery exists there will be rebellion!

Prisoners of war to the streets!

Chile: Acerca de los avances en la situacion de salud de nuestrp companero Juan Aliste Vega

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Compañeras y compañeros:
Tenemos la feliz oportunidad de comunicar que luego de más de dos años de la crisis epiléptica que alertó de la Malformación Artereovensa del parietal derecho del cerebro ha habido un avance efectivo en el abordaje clínico de la MAV. Es así como el pasado jueves 19 de marzo del 2020, muy temprano en la mañana en medio de un nuevo Estado de Excepción Juan fue trasladado desde la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad y sometido a una radio cirugía, que a través de rayos gamma ejecuto la resección de la malformación en sí. Este procedimiento fue la respuesta del equipo de salud que lo trató desde un comienzo ante los enormes riesgos que significaba una operación de cerebro convencional. Ésta cirugía pudo ser llevada gracias a la salud y fortaleza física con que nuestro compañero ha sabido sortear todos estos años de encierro y en particular con los efectos de una epilepsia sintomática.

Ahora nos encontramos en el comienzo del fin del proceso a pesar de la gran tecnología que ha sido desplegada y del éxito de la intervención los resultados definitivos no son perceptibles antes de un año.

Chile: A few quick words from Refractario on the Covid-19 pandemic

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Originally published by Publicacion Refractario. Translated by Enough 14.

March 25, 2020. The spread of Covid 19 around the world reached the territory dominated by the Chilean State, the rate of sick people grows exponentially and we assume the number of dead people will grow.

Far from speculating on its origins and roots, we believe that it is clear that today we have to fight against a disease on the one hand and the increasingly restrictive measures of social control that states seek to impose on us and others. The reality in prisons is no different, as shown by the riots, escape attempts and mobilizations that have multiplied inside the prisons, since enduring such an illness inside the prisons in practice is a death sentence.

The revolt that is shaking the foundations of the Chilean state has changed drastically due to the force of the context. We do not sit down to cry, but we rather assume the need to know how to overcome these new scenarios and also maintain the confidence that we will take the streets again.

From Refractario we call to remain alert regarding the situations inside the prisons: In the southern prisons where different Mapuche community members are imprisoned, in the Santiago 1 prison and the San Miguel prison where most of the prisoners of the revolt are held, in the High Security Prison where our comrades, prisoners of the social war, are being held hostage.

Communication with the prisoners is likely to become less and less fluid, with restrictions on visits and increasing bans looming. We’re out here, we’re with the prisoners, and we’re watching what might happen.

It is likely that in practice, due to the increasingly restrictive measures to move around the city and to communicate, the Refractory page will fall out of date. We will try our best to keep the site as up to date as possible within our capabilities. Since 2012, when we started and continued this project, keeping active in different periods in spite of different obstacles, our possible absence for this period will only be due to force majeure. As soon as we can, we will keep our website active and updated as it has been for 8 years now.

Remain vigilant for our prisoners of social war!

We’ll be back on the streets!

We’re gonna get our prisoners out of jail again!

Refractario, Marzo 2020

Chile: An Anarchist Perspective on the Coronavirus Pandemic

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

On a particularly chaotic Friday afternoon, Piñera inaugurated the nationwide chain reaction to the pandemic. Since the beginning of March, fear of the virus has slowly entered the conversation: between the agitated return to classes that seeks to be a replica (like an earthquake) of the October Revolt, the massive feminist demonstrations, the radicalization of the reactionary sectors and the imminence of the plebiscite, it is taking on more and more importance.

The international situation is no less complex. Last year saw the beginning of a new worldwide wave of revolts against capitalist normality, and the much manipulated “institutionality” seems to be collapsing from all sides, leaving room not only for insurgent creativity but also (and never so easily differentiated) for populism and fascism of all kinds.

The economy has been losing speed for some time, but the trade war between two declining powers, the manufactured rise in the price of oil, and the paralysis caused by the coronavirus, built the perfect storm to leave the stock market and its tangle of speculative fictions in free fall.

It is in this context that the disease arrives in our territory, with the state of exception still fresh in our memories. It starts in the upper classes, and we almost rejoice before remembering that they will not be the only ones to suffer its consequences. The government, always late, announces its measures. Clearly they are not enough, and their only objective is to ensure the free movement of capital. Some (the ones who see conspiracies at every corner) whisper that it is a strategy to cancel the plebiscite, that is apparently so dangerous. But we are clear that the intelligent fascist votes to approve, and that the government’s incompetence requires no more justification than its own class interests. (more…)

[Santiago, Chile] Libro: Memoria y Combate – Compilado de las semanas de agitación en memoria del anarquista Javier Recabarren

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

PDF: Portada – Memoria y Combate

PDF: Libro – Memoria y Combate

La presente publicación nace con la intención de difundir destellos de la vida de un anarquista de la región chilena que falleció producto de un accidente. La publicación busca ser un aporte para la construcción de la memoria combativa, que, en este caso y como podrán encontrar en sus páginas se ha manifestado con diferentes gestos concretos a lo largo de los años con iniciativas, propaganda, sabotajes, fuego, reflexiones, anécdotas y más, gestos anónimos por el compañero y que hoy son compilados y salen a la luz en un nuevo formato. Para nosotrxs la muerte de un anarquista no puede pasar desapercibida, sea la forma que sea su muerte. Un/a compañerx que asume su vida en permanente lucha contra la opresión, la explotación y el poder en sus múltiples formas y concreta sus ideas en hechos es totalmente dignx de rescatar, difundir y replicar, es por eso que no olvidamos a Javier Recabarren, su muerte es un llamado para continuar firmes en la praxis subversiva anarquista.

‘Letter to a Chilean about the current situation (III and last)’ by Gustavo Rodriguez

Sunday, March 1st, 2020

—To Joaquín García Chanks and Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda, comrades and co-conspirators.

“Let’s continue the assault on the existent with all means, undeterred by those who would silence us with weapons from the stockpile of reaction, be they the kick of the democratic jackboot, the empty chatter of opinion or the siren calls of the candy men of hope.”
Jean Weir; Tame words from a wild heart.

“Whomever is determined to carry out their action is not a brave person, they are simply someone who has clarified their ideas, who has realized the futility of striving to play the role assigned to them by Capital. They are aware, and attack with cold determination. And in doing so they realize themselves as a human being. They realize themselves in pleasure. The kingdom of death disappears before their eyes.”
Alfredo Maria Bonanno; Selected Texts.

“Let us put a stop to the conjuring tricks of dialectics. The exploited are not carriers of any positive project, be it even the classless society … Capital is their only community. They can only escape by destroying everything that makes them exploited.”
At Daggers Drawn

When history is written – with capital letters, the one that the victors have always written and will write – about the generalized insurrection in Chile at the end of the first decade of the 21st century, it will have to be read with extreme meticulousness, since it will be reflected in the supposed motivations of the “crisis” that produced the revolt.

Once again, the economic analysis will prevail – with emphasis on “the obscenity of misery” that has caused that uncertain denomination they call “Neo-Liberalism” – and, the poor negotiating capacity of a superb government that failed to meet popular demands and chose for the continuity of a regime of corruption and impunity, a (constitutional) heir of one of the bloodiest fascist dictatorships in the Americas.

However, nothing will be recorded of that anonymous power that shaped the anger of despair, of the nihilistic actions that transformed into a sweeping energy which disrupted normality whilst mercilessly attacking the reality that oppresses us. (more…)

Convocatoria por un Marzo Subversivo, Anarco-Feminista y Disidente ($hile)

Saturday, February 29th, 2020

EN: International Call for a Subversive, Dissident and Anarcho-Feminist March

CONVOCATORIA POR UN MARZO SUBVERSIVO, ANARCOFEMINISTA Y DISIDENTE

La sociedad está estructurada desde diversas cadenas de opresión que se cruzan y entrecruzan, entendemos que solamente la confrontación radical es capaz de acabar con cada una de ellas. Estas pesadas cadenas tienen al patriarcado como una de sus bases principales, por lo cual hacemos un llamado a levantar un marzo subversivo, anarcofeminista y disidente. Históricamente ha sido un mes combativo y pretendemos que lo siga siendo.

La destrucción de la autoridad en sus múltiples dimensiones no puede ir alejada del cuestionamiento y enfrentamiento constante a la dominación machista, en sus formas y conductas, por eso no vemos el enfrentamiento contra el patriarcado como una lucha parcial.

Somos críticxs con las posturas hegemónicas del feminismo social demócrata, que margina y excluye a las sexualidades y cuerpxs no normados. Los géneros son construcciones sociales impuestos de los cuales no nos interesa ser parte, apelamos a una deconstrucción completa de nuestras maneras de vernos y relacionarnos… sin reglas de lo que queramos ser.

Santiago, $hile: Communique From An Anonymous Anarcho-Nihilist Comrade in Prison

Friday, February 21st, 2020

Words of a prisoner in revolt, from Santiago. 1, Module 14, accused of throwing an incendiary device.

As an anarcho-nihilist individualist I write these words from a prison in the $hilean territory, already in my first month in prison I have been able to reaffirm my position as anti-prison and stubbornly unmanageable in front of the whole machinery and framework that tries to make you part of it.

Nowadays while the flame of the insurrection is still burning and continues with great force in different parts of the world and in this same territory, it is important to remain firm despite all the consequences that our actions bring. Nothing we do is in vain, but always being attentive especially in these moments, to where each time our enemies are becoming more and more professional, that it is of relevance that we also do so too and continue positioning ourselves even more in the realities that we live, going hand in hand with self-care, making it part of ourselves and throwing us on the path to which each one of us decided to take.

As an anarcho-nihilist prisoner I call for solidarity in its many forms and not to give up, I send my most complicit hugs and much newen [Mapuche term meaning Strength, Energy], I greet all those who remain steadfast and to the prisoners of the world.

BEFORE CONTROL, CHAOS AND INSURRECTION.

From Anarquia.

Comunicado del compañero subversivo Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda ($hile)

ACERKA DE LA RESISTENCIA A LA PRISIÓN Y LA NECESIDAD DE EXTENDER LA LUCHA AUTÓNOMA ANTIKARCELARIA.

Una breve mirada a las experiencias de lucha desde el encierro, sus énfasis y los kontextos en ke se han desarrollado.

«Sin ningún Comité Central ni ninguna jerarquía que clasifique nuestrxs miembrxs, solo podemos conocer caras extrañas como amigxs a través de sus acciones. Lxs queremos, Ixs abrazamos, al igual que sabemos que otrxs lo harán. Otras células, secciones, grupos.»
Brigada de la Cólera
1970.-

En tiempos de agudización del konflikto social la kárcel es el principal instrumento de kontrol y kastigo para kienes no se someten y se rebelan.

Históricamente el dominio a través de todos sus dispositivos ke sostienen el poder, la autoridad, el mundo de las jerarkías, el patriarkado y el kapital a usado la sanción normalizadora para kombatir toda forma de Resistencia ke atake y amenace su paz social.

Sin ir más lejos no fue sino en la diktadura de Pinochet en donde esta dinámika afectó masiva y sistemátikamente a miles y miles de Rebeldes ke la kombatieron entregando los mejores días de sus vidas.
Se reformuló el marko jurídiko fundado en la doktrina de seguridad nazional ke veía un enemigo interno al ke había ke aplastar bajo la exkusa de «kombatir el káncer marxista» según la voz de los genocidas de la époka.
Operaba la pútrida «justicia militar»:

Miles de muertxs, desaparecidxs, exiliadxs, perseguidxs, violentadxs, torturadxs son el rekuerdo imborrable y el triste legado de la refundación kapitalista neoliberal del imperio yanky a través de la insurrexión militar burguesa del genocida ejército chileno. (more…)
