During the last days of August, the courts accepted the request from the defense for the comrades Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzmán who were seeking to re-open the investigation into the charges under the anti-terrorism law against the comrades. The intention of the defense is to gain access to a video that police claimed was key to their investigation, a video that neither the prosecution nor the police want to hand over.
The investigation period has been extended for another 30 days.
The prosecutors, faithful to their dishonesty declared: “The office of the prosecution has worked very seriously and very meticulously. The evidence in the investigation folder has been in the possession of all the participants from the beginning.”
Solidarity with Juan, Nataly and Enrique!

Comrades Tamara Sol and Natalia Collado have sent this statement on the occasion of the following initiatives: Anti-authoritarian Day for comrades Tamara Sol, Natalia and Nataly at the Libertarian Library Manuel Rojas. Sunday, July 17; 1st Antiauthoritarian Café Literario at the Kanno Suga and Denjiro Kotoku library. Saturday, July 30.
To the comrades, those in affinity, to those present. We were surprised to learn of this initiative, and we consider it very highly knowing that it is an initiative that comes from people whom we do not know or with whom we have no ties, who as individuals and as a group feel the desire to come together in an act of solidarity and affinities, which we greet with the affection and strength that we receive and which gives us the energy to face the prison context as we would like to.
Three weeks have passed since we found ourselves in the maximum-security section of the prison where, unlike the rest of the prison population (the other pavilions), we cannot get out of the section unless handcuffed and with a guard at our side to control us. Likewise we are prevented from participating in learning or recreational activities apart from going out a couple of days to play women’s football at the field. (more…)

On August 13 the comrade Juan Flores was transferred during an operation by prison guards from Santiago Prison 1 to the High Security Prison (CAS) along with Enrique Guzman. Both comrades are defendants in the so-called ‘Bombs Case 2’.
The reason for the surprise transfer was the supposed dismantling of an ‘escape plane’ following the discovery of a drawing in comrade Juan’s cell depicting a prison being attacked.
The comrade’s legal team took action resulting in Juan being transferred back to Santiago 1. Comrade Enrique will remain in the maximum security section of the CAS.
The prison guards’ fear reveals their clumsy powerlessness when faced with unyielding convictions.

To the anarchists of praxis
To the prisoners and fugitives of the social war
On the night of August 18 we activated an incendiary device during the journey of the 110 Transantiago bus in the neighborhood of Maipú. We do not whether our handcrafted ingenuity was a success or not as the action was silenced by the media.
We carried out this action in accordance with our ideas, principles and convictions. We seek to attack the service that transports thousands of people that reproduce the gears of the capitalist system. This service is one more cog, one that is destroying the earth and is complicit in the death of human and animal comrades. Our action damages the machinery of the social order, the law, its guardians, civilization and power.
Against all odds, when times are tough, we do not immobilize ourselves and continue to attack. We are not indifferent to the political prisoners, nor to the solidarity campaigns that arise for them, despite the various onslaughts of power. For our prisoners, fugitives and fallen we continue unabated. (more…)

After almost two years since the arrest and detention of comrades Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzmán, the prosecution have decided to end the investigation period of the case and proceed towards the trial.
In the theater of the modern inquisition, once the investigation period has ended the prosecution have 10 days to present ‘the indictment’, which details the evidence and convictions that they are requesting.
The comrades are accused of the attacks that occurred in 2014 at Subcentro, the metro station of the Dominicans and two police stations.
All our solidarity with the comrades!

Somos parte de lo que la prensa llama vandalismo, somos parte de lo que la ciudadanía llama delincuencia, somos lxs individuxs que mediante pequeñas acciones tienden a romper con la asesina rutina, que dan el paso de la autocompasión y misericordia divina a la realidad tangible que enrostra su peor cara en el cotidiano, ese cotidiano que a gritos pide ser destruido para dar paso al ímpetu avasallador de la autonomía y la libertad total.
El saqueo y la destrucción se vuelven innato en un contexto de lucha para revoltosxs, rebeldes y antisistémicxs, sin lugar a dudas aquella práctica espontánea, como también organizada no decaerá nunca. Desde que lxs estudiantes secundarios, técnicos y universitarios le ruegan al Estado mejoras en la educación, las minorías deseosas de sedición continúan molestando a la autoridad incentivando al desborde generalizado.

“…with simple materials we sabotaged the locks so that the owners of this so-called ‘job’ can have it clear in their heads that there are subjects that do not want and do not respect the commercialization of humiliation, suffering and death of animals.” – Javier Recabarren affiliate cell of ALF
The ALF assumes the low-scale sabotage committed during the night of July 28 in the periphery of Santiago against 2 butcher shops, 1 private dwelling (butcher owner’s house), 1 access fence into the butcher and other shops, and lastly, 1 shop selling chicken.
The flow of commercialization in the shops selling dead animals was interrupted as we filled tens of their locks with liquid steel, which the bastard owners discovered later that morning with surprise. In the following days, we left a message on paper, making it very clear why this action was committed.

5 de Julio. Camufladxs por la ciudad nos dirigimos a unas improvisadas instalaciones de maquinarias retroexcavadoras junto a varios container donde dormían algunxs custodixs. Dos bombas de ruido lanzamos a la infraestructura como ataque contra quienes devastan la tierra sin cuestionamientos amparadxs por el Poder.
¡Fuerza Natalia Collado! Tus palabras nos llenan de frenesí y nos inspiran para contribuir de alguna manera (por mínima que sea) a la lucha contra el Dominio.
No olvidamos a Sebastián Oversluij a más de dos años de su muerte en combate en una tentativa de expropiación. Abrazamos sus ideas y actos que en vida defendió fieramente. La defensa de la tierra, lxs animales y la guerra contra toda inmunda autoridad.
¡A PROPAGAR LA ACCIÓN CONTRA LA DOMINACIÓN!
¡NATALIA COLLADO A LA KALLE!
¡SEBASTIÁN “ANGRY” OVERSLUIJ PRESENTE!

Two comrades, Jean Gutiérrez Zambrano and Andrés Aravena Sotelo, are being held on remand for 90 days for investigations. They were arrested following films and police controls relating to a students’ demo organized by Confech (Confederación de Estudiantes de Chile) on 9th June in Santiago of Chile. Prosecutor Sebastián Gana accuses the comrades of having thrown molotov bottles at cop cars at various times during the demo.

PDF: Al calor de la barricada… con la violencia liberadora, aniquilando lo existente
A MODO DE PRESENTACIÓN
El corazón palpitando, la respiración agitada, la mente clara. Los materiales necesarios: botellas, bencina, mecha y mucho más: el rostro cubierto, las miradas cómplices que se entrecruzan, la decisión tomada: enfrentarse al poder en todas sus formas y con todas las fuerzas.
El humo de la barricada, el estruendo de los vidrios que se quiebran, las piedras lanzadas a los/as esbirros/as del poder, los gritos que nombran a un/x compañerx muertx o encerradx, las voces iracundas que gritan liberación.
A Claudia López, compañera anarquista asesinada por la policía durante enfrentamientos callejeros el 11 de septiembre de 1998 en la población la Pincoya.
A nuestrxs hermanxs Mauricio Morales y Sebastan Oversluij.
A lxs indomitxs secuestrados por el poder y la autoridad. (more…)

Anti-clerical violence has been unleashed with force as one more expression of the anarchic conflict against power and all bastard authority. The impact has been varied, politicians scream for the imposition of new laws and tougher penalties for those who attack order and the symbols of capital. The press plays it role of defamation and talks of social peace, ultimately pro-government. The citizenship, the sheep criticize everything without questioning their rotten enslaved lives and the religious ones cry as always appearing like the good ones in the movie.
We extend and claim the anti-clerical violence because we see the church as one more piece of domination, which is demonstrated by their influence on the policies of social control. Encouraging the power to impose new laws of punishment and fascist morality which are reaffirmed by vain speeches cloaked with a non-existent god that people believe without question for a life sentence that ends in a heavenly paradise. Who can believe in such a story? What a load of shit. (more…)

We are far from taking a strong defence of any individual who presents him/herself as enemy of the State and of all forms of dominion (over humans, animals and nature). We see how – and many imprisoned and not imprisoned comrades are right in this – not everyone can be defined a comrade or relations be forged with them.
In particular we want to generate a debate on what’s happening with the groups of action that deny anarchy is political objective and everyday struggle. These are so-called eco-extremists who shout coolly ‘death to anarchy’ thus disowning their own origins and formation, the idea following which they used to take nourishment from the warriors of the urban guerrilla of the past and the present, and then they went on to emphasize certain aspects that have always been within anarchy and its struggle for the liberation of humans, our brothers the animals and the earth.
Being extraneous to the constant tension we want to keep and to our struggle to make anarchy alive, a certain self-proclaimed eco-extremist sector is throwing away the libertarian ideal that manifests itself in the insurrectional struggle.
A certain small group linked to the imaginary category of ‘symbolic populations’ and musical/countercultural university areas (they disown university but they attend it… and they study the subjects they hate so much), despise the human animal and therefore see the enemy everywhere. (more…)

PDF: Semana de Agitación
Prólogo: Javier Recabarren, nuestro pekeño gran guerrero vive y vuelve en lxs ke luchan!!
En la diktadura de la adultokracia, de los disvalores de la normalidad jerarkizada de la autoridad, un individux de 11 años de vida resulta ser sólo un niñx kon nada ke enseñar y kon la destinación obligatoria de aprender en kalidad de alumno, sin konciencia klara de si y kon la perspektiva únika de pasar a formar parte de akel inmenso ejército de explotadxs ke sostiene, kual cadenas. El poder ke lx domina.
Para kienes luchamos kontra el presente de opresión y miseria, un(x) guerrerx, un(x) hermanx-kompañerx no kabe en los parámetros generacionales ke el poder usa para estatificar a lxs individuxs. (more…)

Words from Tamara Sol Farías Vergara (Castellano Abajo)
$hile: Summer 2016
When you have been behind bars in isolation from the rest of the prison population, daily existence becomes difficult in such a small space, where society and its roles are intensified and adaption becomes a daily struggle to resist being swept by its morale and its desire to consume. Thieves, drug traffickers and murderers internalize the State and its Power, as with its authority.
I seek to reach out without ceasing to be myself, without the isolation that the police implements. We are not all that different, only that the chains that tie them down become ties that I do not wish to let go of, whereby tensions become routine. Life is unwrapped in what we are more than words can explain, but when will turns into a specific schedule to wake, eat and sleep, the battle against the established order begins in the abstract of ideas and in memory. It begins in the search for the smallest details or gestures of honesty not yet contaminated by competition between poor people, since the walls are great, the bars and locks are as well, and are in the hands of a physical enemy the size of a territory. I see going against it now as nothing but increases its power, therefore, I patiently wait the right moment for liberation, and in this way find the theory and practice in life itself. (more…)
