An anarchist look at the forest fires in south-central Chile

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

An anarchist look at the forest fires in south-central Chile
And on the attempts of the power to take advantage aiming at the Mapuche and anarchist subversion.

For a couple of weeks, the expansion of various firefighting areas in the forest industry business in the south-central part of the country has been reported in Chile. These fires were spread over various territories and have resulted in irreparable damage to various natural ecosystems and native forests, reaching homes and causing the deaths of people and a large number of animals in what is already a true ecocide that is still continuing.

These forest fires and their consequences have become the subject of the news agenda in recent weeks, with the political, business and media class (dis)informing and imposing a version of the origin of the fires that omits- or leaves last – any responsibility on the part of forestry companies. In turn, given the magnitude of the catastrophe, several groups and organizations seek to support the devastated territories and criticize from various positions the way the government has tackled the problem.

Anarchist prisoners Mónica Caballero & Francisco Solar to be expelled from Spain and released in Chile soon

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

According to corporate media in Spain and Chile, the Audiencia Nacional (National Court) of Spain decided on January 30 to commute the rest of Mónica and Francisco‘s sentence to expulsion. The lawyers of the comrades are thought to have requested for article 89 of the Spanish Penal Code to be invoked which allows for foreign citizens serving more than one year’s imprisonment to have their sentence replaced with expulsion from the Spanish state. The comrades had their original sentence of 12 years reduced on appeal to 4 years and 6 months last December which means they have now served more than a third of their sentence.

It is expected that following police bureaucratic processes that the comrades will be flown by Spanish police to Chile where they will be handed over to Chilean police and then released back onto the street.

Trial date set against anarchist comrades Juan, Nataly and Enrique (Chile)

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

After years of initiating investigations and arrests for attacks on police stations and Santiago Metro infrastructure in 2014, the nauseating southern district prosecution office has decided to set a date to begin the trial under the anti-terrorism law.

The prosecution will have 186 witnesses, 87 experts, 231 documents and 648 pieces of evidence to be presented before the altars of the democratic inquisition on March 24, 2017 when the trial against the comrades will begin.

Like other mega-legal processes, the trial is expected to last for a couple of months.

There is an urgent need to build revolutionary solidarity to confront the judicial machinery that is trying to swallow the lives of Juan, Nataly and Enrique.

Comunicado del compañero Joaquín García Chanks (Chile)

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Ya han pasado cinco meses desde que volví a habitar las celdas de la Sección Máxima Seguridad del C.A.S y creo que es necesario referirme tanto a lo personal como al escenario carcelario. Las razones para no escribir antes son, obviamente, personales; pero más que nada son debido a la creencia -a pesar de ser un convencido de que el compartir experiencias genera lazos impagables- de que la plataforma virtual y su conjunto de comunicados se aleja mucho de lo real y se acerca a una idea abstracta del día a día carcelario e individual. ¿Irreductible? Sí, exista o no un vaivén emocional, ni la convicción ni la mente flaquean, pero esa asquerosa idea del mártir de acero tras los barrotes debe caer. Por el suicidio de la imagen y el fetiche, por la real complicidad destructora.

“El pesimismo es el opio de los intelectuales, el optimismo pertenece a los imbéciles. Un realismo fanático y soñador, la conciencia de que no cabemos en este mundo, los valores que defenderemos en cada momento, más el calor cómplice de los que queremos y estimamos”.

Hace cinco meses, un poco de la detención:

El 7 de Septiembre, aproximadamente a las cinco de la tarde y a poco más de dos meses del quebrantamiento del arresto domiciliario total dictado por el aparato jurídico, me detuvieron al subir a un bus rural con dirección a algún lugar. (more…)

Words in solidarity with Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia (Chile)

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Note from Insurrection News: The following text by imprisoned compañeros Fabián Durán, Enrique Guzmán, Nicolás Rojas and Joaquín García was written in response to the cowardly attacks by prison guards against the imprisoned compañeras Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia that took place at the San Joaquin women’s prison on January 11th and 12th. In response to these brutal and cowardly attacks friends and relatives of the compañeras quickly mobilized and held a demonstration outside the prison on January 13th. Banners were displayed outside the prison, slogans were shouted and also painted on the prison walls. Riot police eventually attacked the demonstration with water cannons and arrested 5 compas. Although the demonstration was suppressed it sent a clear message to the prison authorities that attacks against imprisoned revolutionary compas will be immediately responded to. You can see some photos from the demonstration here.

Chilean Prisons: Words in solidarity with Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia

From the modules of the maximum security section we salute each of the compas kidnapped by the state, who day by day, with dignity and pride, face the prison reality in each of its expressions and forms.

A few days ago we learned in a more or less partial form of the cowardly attack by the prison guards against the compañeras Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia. We are fully aware of how repetitive these actions have become, whether as punishment, isolation or an eternal package but the recurrence prevents normalization, this gives us more strength, to ourselves and to our convictions. Each day we become more acutely eager for revenge against the prison society and those who defend it. (more…)

Santiago: Sale el número 19 del boletín “La Bomba” (Chile)

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

PDF: 19 La Bomba 19

A nuestrxs queridxs lectorxs, afines y anónimxs en el mundo.
A nuestrxs presxs que resisten día a día al Poder.
A aquellxs prófugxs que burlan a las nefastas policías.
Por todxs lxs caídxs, en especial a la memoria combativa del Pelao
Angry.

Sale para todxs ustedes: ¡El último boletín del año!

En esta nueva edición, la memoria combativa se toma las calles. Esta memoria combativa a la cual nos referimos, es una constante y creemos que es sumamente importante en el desarrollo político de cada individuo rebelde que asume su vida en lucha contra el Estado/Capital.

Es importante porque quien asume esa lucha, tiene que asumir también sus consecuencias; y en el desarrollo práctico, histórico de la misma, son múltiples los episodios de los cuales hay que instruirse para avanzar.
En ese sentido la muerte como consecuencia en la lucha es una situación ni querida ni buscada, pero altamente posible, por ende, la memoria combativa recupera -experiencias- para aprender de ellas y deja claro las consecuencias a asumir. Junto a los altos valores de respeto, hermandad, honor y dignidad del camino rebelde de quien luchó hasta el final.

Así avanzamos, retroalimentándonos, conociendo experiencias duras, como también hermosas, dejando claro que la lucha no es un juego y que más allá de todo, continúa. Así lo demuestra este mínimo aporte propagandístico, pasa y pasa el tiempo y los grupos de acción siguen dando lucha, aquí dejaremos plasmadas sus ideas, para que jamás pasen desapercibidas.

“La Bomba”, Por la expansión del Caos y la Anarquía.
Individualidades Anárquicas.
Diciembre 2016, Chile.

Letter from imprisoned compañera Natalia ‘Tato’ Collado in memory of Sebastián “Angry” Oversluij (Chile)

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

For my part I did not know Angry, but his death (to which I was not indifferent) brought him close to me via his writings, drawings, songs and the memories of other people that they relived with great affection and that allowed me and allows others to go beyond the day of December 11 and take a deeper meaning from the memory of a compañero and also of others. A sense of recognition of the person himself, of a being who took the step of defying himself, the society and this civilization of domination by compelling himself to live another life that was not established or pre-fabricated. With the ups and downs, contradictions and successes that come from rebellious decisions and wills.

The memory of which I speak comes from a feeling of affinity with the compañero and certain experiences, practices, desires, feelings and ideas that fill our life with a sense of self, pride and the impulse to walk along a similar path of struggle and confrontation, of desires and creation.

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : ‘Anarchy has reminiscence’ (Greece)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

[Text for a gathering in memory of Sebastian Oversluij that took place in an anarchist squat in Chile]

One can never be really lost unless oblivion wraps one in her arms.

It’s been three years now that comrade Sebastian Oversluij does not walk anymore through the paths of searching for the wild beauty of anarchist action. It’s been three years now that some of our brothers and sisters there in Chile feel his absence stretching their hearts. It is three years since the bullets of a sneak-security guard of the “Banco Estado” took his life, extinguishing the flame of the anarchist spirit that used to burn inside him.

But we, in our turn, as well as many others, we are not willing to let our comrade disappear in the fog of oblivion. We honor our brother just like we honor his choice of passing into action, attacking a bank-a temple of money, emptying the enemy’s wallet, expropriating the minimum that we should get comparing to what authority expropriates from our own lives. The bank robbery carried out by an anarchist always carries inside the seed of refusal. The refusal to submit to a world where you’re restricted to sell your soul to the cruel laws of free market, so that you can live to work and work to consume and consume to fill in your existential gaps with a pile of useless objects.

We know that we are very far away and that our words have to cross an entire ocean to reach you. But we hope you’ll be able to feel the affinity we all feel with all those who discover the ways to keep our brothers close to us at the events, in discussions, in our imagination, but above all in the continuing of spreading the constant anarchist revolt itself.

The members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire- FAI/IRF

Trial preparation against anarchist comrades Juan, Nataly and Enrique ends (Chile)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

During the first week of December, the trial preparation was concluded against the comrades Nataly, Juan and Enrique who are accused of various explosive attacks against police stations and metro stations.

In this bureaucratic / judicial instance it is sought to establish what evidence will be presented in the oral trial.

We must remember that these comrades are being held in the former penitentiary, the maximum security section and San Miguel Prison while the prosecution for their part raises accusations that seek to sentence them for decades and decades of imprisonment.

It is expected that they will soon set a date for the completion of the trial as a culmination of the democratic inquisition to punish the rebellious insurrectionists.

All our solidarity with Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzman!

Nemesis Project: Incendiary/explosive attack against the ‘National Association of Judiciary Officials’ / Proyecto Nemesis: Artefacto incendiario/explosivo contra ‘Asociación Nacional de Funcionarios del Poder Judicial’ (Chile)

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

On the night of December 11, we placed a homemade incendiary/ explosive device with a delay system in the National Association of Judiciary Officials building located on Cienfuegos street in the center of Santiago. The device detonated perfectly and set fire to the door of the building.

The National Association of Judiciary Officials is the place where the officials who authorize the operation of the prison-court complex meet every day. We attacked a den of the active machinery of the system that each day allows the miserable individuals of the State apparatus to exercise the right that they have assumed to judge and imprison other people.

Each sentence issued by judges, each conviction requested by a prosecutor, each imprisonment in the prisons of power is supported by the role of judicial functionaries who validate with their work the existence and maintenance of this repressive industry.

In these times of trials against anarchists who risk long sentences our action is a ray of fire from the depths of our dark intentions towards the social order of dominion.

To act as part of the international proposal of the NEMESIS PROJECT that was initiated in Greece by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrades to hit the powerful and their accomplices in their homes, their work and meeting places. (more…)

Santiago: Barricadas con fuego – Sebastián Oversluij Seguel presente! (Chile)

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Nos reapropiamos del tiempo, es decir lo recuperamos, lo robamos. Así y solamente así logramos ponernos en comunión con otras individualidades para levantar una coordinación operativa con el objetivo de cuestionar y golpear lo establecido. Convencidxs de esto, irrumpimos con barricadas diversas calles y avenidas de Santiago, accionando contra el orden existente con el que lxs Poderosxs pretenden dominarnos.

La acción de propaganda realizada en las calles de la urbe va cargada de memoria vengativa pues ya van 6 años de absoluta impunidad desde que el Estado de Chile masacró a 81 presos. Efectivamente, fue en la madrugada del 8 de diciembre del 2010, en el ala sur y norte del piso 4, Torre 5 de la cárcel de San Miguel, donde la maquinaria Estatal mostró su verdadera cara, esta vez sin disimular ni ocultar la tortura y la muerte que trágicamente encarnó los cuerpos calcinados de 81 personas.
