The Hunger Strike is Over (Chile)

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Received via email:

ENGLISH:

Today, April 26th, our partners, kidnapped in the “Bombs Case” montage, have decided to finish -in the day #65- their hunger strike since February 21th. About the decision that they have taken, we’re waiting that the comrades themselves write a release with their reasons, because no ‘news’ will tell us how they feel or why the hunger strike is over, if it is not them themselves who tell us.

However, the fight for their freedom continues and now we must support them in their recuperation after the long fast, no only materially but morally too, as has been going on. So that the solidarity doesn’t stop. Our forces go for them.

That the fear doesn’t destroy solidarity…
That the solidarity destroys prison.

KIDNAPPED BY THE STATE TO THE STREETS!

Hi-profile attack against BBVA Bank in Santiago (Chile)

Monday, April 25th, 2011

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…

G4S van set on fire in Nottingham (UK)

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

19 April 2011

“In the early hours of this morning a G4S vehicle was set on fire in North Nottingham. A container of petrol was poured on the bonnet and a match was tossed. As we fled the scene we remembered our friends who have been detained, deported, tortured and murdered by Group 4.

This was not an act of bravery, nor was it enough to avenge all those who have who have been tormented by the prison machine. It was however a sign of our intent. A sign that we will not accept this society as the way things have to be.

The struggle against social control is something we must participate in, and to do that we must attack those that participate in the maintenance of society. Whether these attacks are large or small they are what we must do to stay true to ourselves and our desire for a society without domination.

G4S have profited, and will continue to profit from the prison society which is an attack on the marginalised, the working class, the “non-white”, in fact on all of us who are not part of the elite. So Fuck G4S, fuck all those who seek to, or profit from the imprisonment of our friends, the oppression of our families and the attempt to control us. We will not be controlled, we will attack again and again, because we are filled with love, compassion and pure unadulterated rage.

This action was in solidarity with the 14 Chilean Anarchists who were arrested on the 14th of August last year, because solidarity is our weapon.”

Spring attacks from Informal Anarchist Federation (Italy, Greece, Switzerland)

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Attacks by the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) across three countries in Europe. The targets are directed at military, nuclear-industrial and prison targets within the frame of international revolutionary solidarity. The European authorities are trying to withhold details of the claims accompanying the explosive devices for purpose of denying the ‘value of propaganda’.

30 March 2011 – Olten, Switzerland: A package bomb exploded in the offices of Swissnuclear (the Federation of the Swiss nuclear industry) giving two office workers superficial burns. The attack is claimed by the FAI who outline a vision of their ideas and vindicate the action in solidarity with Silvia, Costas and Luca who are imprisoned accused of planning to attack a center of IBM nanotechnology in Rüschlikon, Zürich.

31 March 2011 – Livorno, Italy: A package bomb has been delivered to the Ruspoli barracks, a center of the Parachutist Brigade Commando which serves in Afghanistan. A soldier remains hurt and crippled. Lieutenant colonel, chief of general staff of the Brigade, highest in degree at the moment in the barracks. The explosion has amputated three fingers of the hand and injuries to the face and the legs. The target was carried away in a state of shock to the first aid. The soldiers at the moment do not supply details. Police investigation is underway. A claim of responsibility accompanied the explosion by the Informal Anarchist Federation.

31 March 2011 – Korydallos, Greece: The Director of Korydallos Prison receives a package bomb but it is detected and defused by technicians of the Greek police. From the Greek corporate press it is learned that inside of the destined package bomb to the director there was a claim of responsibility in the name of the Informal Anarchist Federation. The text has not been published, but Greek journalists report that a draft of two pages in Italian in which is mentioned solidarity to the captive companions of the revolutionary organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, and beyond to other prisoners locked up in the prisons of Switzerland, Germany and Chile.

Police Station attacked in Nottingham (UK)

Monday, March 28th, 2011

28 March 2011

“Last night just after midnight police station on Wollaton Road, Nottingham was attacked with glass jars filled with black paint. We send this loving kiss to Jock Palfreeman and all those who represented for the eternal struggle against domination on the streets of London this weekend.

We chose our target to emphasise the fragility and weakness of the state. If their first line of defence can be hurt with such ease then cracks in the status quo will grow and begin to bleed. We view the cops as the security guards of capitalists, protecting property, reinforcing white supremacy and state control. With this action we show their inability to protect themselves.

As things get worse, as the divisions between the capitalists and the rest become deeper and more entrenched the fascism inherent in any police force will become ever more clear. As this become the case it will be important for us to know in our angry little hoodlum hearts that we can strike back whenever we choose to.

In doing this we did not forever alter the state of things, but we did forever alter the strength and resolve within ourselves as we prepare for all out social war.

The love in our hearts is offered up with this action to Jock Palfreeman imprisoned by the Bulgarian arm of state power for refusing to cower in the face of racism and fascism. Also to the 14 Chilean anarchists currently on hunger strike, physically captured by the industrial prison complex, but still free in their hearts and strong in their resistance. We won’t let them be forgotten.

Finally to those who rebelled against state control on the streets of London, those black clad lovers and fighters who strove to liberate themselves. Solidarity to those who were arrested on Saturday.

Not because they’re innocent.

Not because they’re peaceful.

But because they’re comrades.”

Bombing near Santiago television studio claimed (Chile)

Monday, March 28th, 2011

11 March 2011

“Through this e-mail, we claim responsibility for the explosion that took place on Friday, March 11 at a location next to the Television studios on San Cristóbal hill. Said action was painstakingly and prophetically covered on Sunday, March 13 by El Mercurio, as is their custom, as an explosion related to the judicial decision extending Pablo Morales’ preventive detention period. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reason for Friday night’s bomb detonation was to send a message to one of the pillars of the system of domination: the official press, specifically television. We haven’t forgotten how those representatives of power insulted us. Especially cruel was TVN’s Special Report, which showed comrade Mauricio Morales’ lifeless body and has become the mouthpiece for Prosecutor Peña and his mob. In case they haven’t already realized it, that’s the reason why the press was attacked during the last September 11 march, with special attention given to TVN’s mobile reporting unit. To us, the situation is not settled, and we will no doubt have many more encounters with those reporter-cops. Additionally, March 11 marked the first year of the Piñera government, which represents a strengthened alliance of Capitalist and State interests, the likes of which Chilean history hasn’t seen before. Clearly, the haute bourgeoisie no longer needs the military or the hack politicians of the concertación.

The intent of our action was to neither help nor hinder the situation of anticapitalist prisoners. We think that would be impossible. Nevertheless, while we recognize those prisoners as part of a wide anticapitalist spectrum that certainly isn’t limited by the number of houses it squats, our knowledge of or relationship to them has nothing to do with the science fiction movie that BIPE (Police Special Investigations Squad) and DIPOLCAR (Carabineros Police Intelligence Department) sold to Peña and his prosecutors, who are hungry for success, fame, and TV cameras. However, we are well aware that, no matter what, they’ll try to smear the prisoners and link them to any actions that take place. If there are no actions or bombings, they’ll say the prisoners are guilty and that’s why the bombings stopped. If there are actions and explosions, they’ll say it’s only to show that the prisoners are innocent. In the end, the new subversion and the new diffuse autonomous guerrilla war can’t be guided by what power thinks.

An entirely different matter is the recent attack carried out on a private house, which was followed by a communiqué containing a threat to attack a school. We completely reject that action. We won’t interpret it, we don’t understand it, and we don’t know what goal it hoped to achieve other than tainting anticapitalist struggle and rebellious ideas. We think it was either the work of police, parapolice squads engaging in false flag operations, or people with terrorist tendencies who made a serious mistake. Our actions, about which we won’t go into detail now so as to not make the work of the police or the prosecutor’s mob easier, have always had clear objectives and been carefully designed—based on the time, the location, and the physical characteristics of the chosen targets—to avoid injury to innocent people. We also attempt to limit the damage we cause to the targets we attack, and not to nearby homes. To us, actions are a means of propaganda, agitation, and sabotage. Sometimes they are a means of direct attack, but only when they respond to the murderous police who have killed our brothers and sisters here in the cities or on Mapuche territory, spinelessly shooting them in the back. We have no reason to beg forgiveness for wounded police or the damages to their buildings, because we are proud of ourselves and know that those wounds and damages are nothing compared to the valued lives of our brothers and sisters, which those bloodthirsty vermin brought to an end for a paltry salary from the owners of the country. The moral standards of subversives and revolutionaries can’t be compared with those of the police, and we therefore repeat that we have nothing to do with indiscriminate attacks on the civilian population. On the off chance that the people who attacked that private house chose it at random and come from the anticapitalist milieu, we think they should profoundly rethink their political orientation and their actions, which only benefit the enemy.

On a television program yesterday, Interior Minister Rodrigo Hinzpeter theatrically asked how it was possible that we could coexist for so long with the injustice of people being in prison for not paying a fine. His words would have made us smile had they not been tinged with the shadow of death, coming from a person who supports the genocide of Arabs by Israel, which is where he learned many of his black arts. Prison is part of this system of death, exploitation, and oppression in which a privileged minority enjoy power and wealth while the rest of the population barely survives in a country with one of the world’s worst distributions of income, in a country where the police kill Mapuche, students, and subversive militants with with total impunity and the blessing of concertación politicians or the right, in this bloodstained police democracy. That’s the real tragedy. That’s the real injustice. Not so much that a person who doesn’t pay a fine goes to prison, which is certainly tragic and unjust, but that suit-and-tie terrorists make deals to raise the prices of medicine for pregnant women, children, and the elderly, who will never set foot in prison. Or that we will never see the murderers of Mapuche handcuffed, with media vultures asking them why they did it. No, that type of treatment is reserved for the poor. After all, it’s for the poor that prisons are built. Never will we see landowners pay for the immense damage their forests cause to communities: drying out the soil, preventing the spread of culture, hindering agriculture due to a lack of irrigation, paying the police to shoot children. That’s the real terrorism in this country, which moves its chess pieces to win approval for power stations that pollute nature and poison people, while earnest politicians are delighted to welcome the U.S. ambassador from the comfort of their very progressive presidential easy-chairs. Who are the terrorists? Are they not the same ones who applauded or looked the other way while people were being thrown into the sea, the same ones who are now party members in Mr. Hinzpeter’s coalition government?

To conclude, we offer some information to demonstrate the authenticity of our action and to show anticapitalists that we can all form action groups, that it’s in our hands, that we have never needed leaders or any ridiculous foreign financing. We carried out Friday’s action at night, and we were armed in case things got dicey. We left a bomb consisting of almost two kilos of black powder mixed with powdered aluminum inside an empty fire extinguisher. The charge had a detonation system comprising two cell phones (in case one failed), which provided the necessary energy through a connection to their respective vibrators. The bomb was set to detonate at 9:45 p.m. in an area where no one could have been hurt. It was a symbolic and propagandistic action to mark the first year of the Piñera government. We also claim responsibility for the bomb left in Vitacura near the Las Tranqueras Police Station in January, which sadly failed to explode due to a problem with its detonation system.

Finally, we call on everyone to fight more fiercely and take the streets on March 29, Young Combatant’s Day, to remember our dead and show with fire in the streets that we do not fear Piñera or Hinzpeter’s fascism. We end with a few words that get louder and louder each time rebels shout them in the streets and the prisons:

Wake up, it’s time to fight!

While there is misery, there will be rebellion!

For the spread and multiplication of autonomous anticapitalist cells in $hile and the rest of the world!

To the streets on March 29!”

INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY FRONT: ARACELY ROMO INSURRECTIONAL COMMANDO

PS regarding recent events in Japan: In just a few days, a representative of the largest terrorist State in the world – the same one that dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, causing over 200,000 deaths – will be welcomed with the red carpet and much deference by the degenerate leaders of Chile. What a treasure!

We know who the Italian financiers of the Chilean terrorism are! (Italy, Chile)

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

From Simone and Nora

(Communiqué)

On February 15 2011, we read in some online Chilean newspaper: ‘The public prosecutor of the Caso Bombas is considering to arrest two Europeans in order to extradite them as they are considered the financiers of the Chilean anarchists involved in this case. During the hearing to discuss the detention conditions of Omar Hermosilla Marin and Vinicio Aguiera Mery (two of the 14 defendants in the case), held on Monday February 14, public prosecutor Rojas has declared that an Italian and a French are the alleged financiers of the anarchist Chilean group accused of committing at least 23 explosive attacks out of the 108 that were carried out in Santiago of Chile since 2005. According to the judiciary, the Italian deposited 900 euros in the bank account of Omar Hermosilla Marin, accused of illicit association with aim of terrorism. Moreover, according to Interpol investigators, the two Europeans travelled to Argentina on a number of occasions in order to support anti-State groups’. (more…)

Responsibility claim for arson attack against Emporiki bank in Kolonaki, Athens (Greece)

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

6 March 2011

“Our brothers fight…

They do not quit, they are not subjugated.
Our brothers by day conspire, and in the nights they move like shadows.
They sow destruction, they make passages, this is how they live.

They are not crawling ass-licking for the bread of the boss…

Our brothers seek comrades, to become one.
They do not spend their time on ephemeral relations, they look us deep in the eyes…

Our brothers stand up to the enemy since it does not frighten them. They are not afraid…

Fear is for bourgeois and snitches.

Our brothers stand proudly also in prison…

They do not regret, they do not comply with judges and people guards.

Our brothers do not beg for life.

They search for Freedom and go to the end.

Lambros Foundas is our brother, warrior of Freedom, member of Revolutionary Struggle, he fell in the battle, with a gun in his hand.

Tears do not suit our brothers, continuity of Struggle and attack suits them.

As a minimal token of honor we attacked the “Emporiki” bank on Skoufa street, in Kolonaki square, the early hours of Sunday 6th March.

We look up high, there where with other rare and beautiful makes plans. Grins to those that continue, to those that do not forget, to those that look at death and shout: Death does not exist!

HONOUR FOR EVER

Solidarity to the hostage Guerrillas of the Revolutionary Organisation Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, the Revolutionary Organisation Revolutionary Struggle and the Revolutionary Organisation 17th November.

Solidarity to the hostages of war that do not bow the head behind the bars of democracy.

Solidarity to the hunger strikers of the “bombs case” in Chile.

We raise our fists those that continue the hostilities…

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell release Letter of Solidarity with Hungerstrikers of the 14/14 "bombs case" (Greece, Chile)

Monday, March 14th, 2011

From the excellent This Is Our Job.

On March 2, the Fire Cells Conspiracy Prisoner Cell released the following letter in solidarity with the hunger strike being carried out by the imprisoned “Bombings Case” comrades in Chile.

We have entered a period in which attacks on Domination and its conquered subjects are spreading with undiminished intensity to the four corners of the Earth. Our individualities, despite living and evolving in many different circumstances, share the same positive emotions: disgust and hatred toward this world. We collectivize our negations and arm them with the insatiable desire for action and the burning passion for total liberation. Different borders and languages are obstacles we will demolish to find ourselves side by side, rising up against this system’s orders and decrees, derisively spitting on each law-abiding way of life it offers.

We reject this world—this vast authoritarian construct—and we do not hesitate to point the barrel of our critique at the willingly enslaved majority of the social body, whose defeatist attitude contributes to the preservation of the existing regime. We refuse to degrade, in any way whatsoever, our revolutionary perspective and ethic in the name of wider “social acceptance.” We are proud to be part of the anarchist/antiauthoritarian movement, and we are in favor of all processes and projects that spread the idea and practice of revolution. To us, revolution doesn’t boil down to a specific period of time in the distant future. Rather, it is a response, here and now, to the totalitarianism we see in every expression of Domination. It is our own response to the existential void imposed by contemporary consumer civilization. It is an expression of the rage awakened in us by the agonizing urban environment that restricts our movements and desires, the same expression of rage that can’t be suffocated by the elaborate dead-ends presented to us as “reasonable choices.” It is also all the moments of attack we’ve shared with comrades, as well as the moments to come. It is the enchantment and the magic of connecting praxis to theory, causing little cracks to form in the shop window of determinism. It is all our points of view, and the means of achieving it is the new urban guerrilla war. Self-Organization, Solidarity, Attack, Respect, Trust, and Friendship are its cornerstones, forming the foundation of diffuse urban guerrilla war.

Dozens of our brothers, the well-known but also the unknown, are in prisons here as well as far away. Some of them remain captive on the basis of a few pitiful charges, others because they were unfortunately stopped while carrying out an attack. However, the legal duality of “innocence and guilt” is irrelevant to solidarity, which is a relationship between comrades that considers the dignity and political conscience of each revolutionary. In August 2010, a number of Chilean comrades were arrested during a repressive operation. Eight of them, plus two more arrested in September, were placed in preventive detention, while the rest were granted a provisional release. These comrades are being charged with dozens of revolutionary bombings despite a complete lack of evidence against them. The organizations that carried out said bombings have even stated via communiqué that they have no relationship with the arrestees, whose criminal prosecution by the Chilean state nevertheless continues. The comrades in preventive detention are locked up in high-security wings for 22 hours a day, in cells that measure six square meters. The extension of their captivity fills us with rage. They recently began a hunger strike, demanding their immediate release and the scheduling of their trial date, as well as the abolition of the antiterrorist law inherited by the current Chilean democracy from the Pinochet regime.

We send our warmest greetings to Andrea Urzúa, Camilo Pérez, Carlos Riveros, Felipe Guerra, Francisco Solar, Mónica Caballero, Pablo Morales, and Rodolfo Retamales, and from the bottom of our hearts wish them victory in the difficult struggle they are engaged in. From thousands of miles away, we send them our revolutionary signals, encouragement, courage, and strength. We call on all comrades, including ourselves, to carry out attacks and aggressive expressions of support for their hunger strike in the context of International Solidarity, thereby giving the powerful a taste of the flames that burn in our hearts. From Chile to Greece, the Netherlands to Mexico, Italy to Argentina, England to Switzerland, Germany to Russia, and the U.S. to Turkey, we will use every method to intensify the revolutionary anarchist war. Finally, many special thanks to comrades Andrea Urzúa and Mónica Caballeros for publicly expressing their solidarity with our case.

“You aspire to the free heights, your soul thirsts for the stars. But your wicked instincts, too, thirst for freedom. Your wild dogs want freedom; they bark with joy in their cellar when your spirit plans to open all prisons.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

REVOLUTION FIRST AND ALWAYS.

LONG LIVE THE NEW URBAN GUERRILLA WAR.

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell: Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panayiotis Argyrou, Haris Hatzimichelakis, Michalis Nikolopoulos

Note: The above statement doesn’t mention comrades Vinicio Aguilera and Omar Hermosilla, likely because news hadn’t yet reached Greece that Aguilera and Hermosilla were back in prison and had immediately joined the hunger strike. Another error is the mention of Pablo Morales as one of the hunger strikers, when in actuality he is the only one who has not joined.

Attacks in Barcelona dedicated to the prisoners of the "bombs case" (Chile)

Monday, March 14th, 2011

10 March 2011

We want to dedicate these small gestures of attack to all the insurgents across the globe

Because this world is totally subjugated by a system, the State-Capitalism, that devastates the planet and exploits and oppresses all life forms within it. Because in this system, a few privileged ones hold power, economic as well as social or political, and they use it as an instrument for subjugating the rest to the misery of its domination and domestication, through patriarchy, the state apparatus, and the economy, condemning thousands to death, to poverty, and condemning all those who rebel to repression, prison, punishment…

For all these reasons we have to rise up in war against the system and against all those who operate or directly support it: the rich, politicians, police, judges, journalists, and other trash. And to teach by example we try to do our little part so that this trash is also sometimes on the receiving end, via revolutionary violence, of the repercussions of their rottenness; so that at least they don’t sleep tranquilly and so that they feel that at any moment their property, their companies, their institutions can become the target of our rage.

That’s why on the night of March 10 we attacked the following sites in Barcelona

-A bank (Savings and Pension Bank of Barcelona) in the Sagrera neighborhood with the use of a homemade incendiary device consisting of flammable liquid, a homemade initiator, and a slow fuse.
-A Santander bank branch on Passeig Maragall, through the destruction of its windows.
-15 bancs in Gracia through the gluing of their doors and cash machines.

We want to dedicate these small gestures of attack to all the insurgents across the globe, with a special eye towards the 10 anarchists incarcerated in Chile on hunger strike, prisoners within the so-called “bombs case.” For them and all the other indomitables an insurrectionary greeting.

Revolt and sabotage are easy and reproducible. Anyone in any place can, individually or collectively, put them into practice. Let us extend the attacks against this infected system, and solidarity towards those who suffer it and towards those who are repressed by it.

We promise more and better.

Death to the State and long live Anarchy

Statement from Mónika Caballero (Chile)

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Dear Comrades:

It has almost been two weeks since we began the hunger strike, yet I did not have to wait for your solidarity, and your beautiful gestures have cast light into these dismal halls.

The traps of the persecutors are made to break or mold their own laws in order to create “new figures”. The decisions that will come into effect the 16th of March share these same characteristics, those accused in the “Caso Bombas” may face new charges (the best excuse to prolong preventative detention.)
