EN/ES | Santiago, Chile: Responsibility claim for incendiary attack of a Transantiago Bus

Thursday, April 16th, 2020

31 March 2020

12 years after the death of Jonny Cariqueo Yáñez, who was assassinated on March 31 by a heart attack caused by a strong beating by the repressive forces of the State of $hile, during his arrest in a police hunt that March 29, 2008 in the commune of Pudahuel.

On the afternoon of March 31 of this year, a few hours from the curfew, we abandoned an homemade incendiary device on a Transantiago bus, for it to catch fire in or near its terminal, in one of the peripheries from the city.

This is an attack on the cruel and bloody machinery that governs civic life, against amnesia, passivity and inertia, attitudes which we reject, even in times of sanitary protection, since the war continues. The political-social-economic crisis that was being experienced in the country, which has been enhanced with the current world health crisis, shows us, once again, the clear interests and priorities of power in preserving the pockets of the rich and their companies rather than looking after the well-being of the common people, the poor people, the people marginalized and hostages of the police state. So we insist on breaking with the tranquility that seeks and promotes power. (more…)

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…)

29 de Marzo – Dia de lxs Jovenes Combatientes (Chile)

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

EN: 29th of March – Day of the Young Combatant, some words from Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras

29 DE MARZO
DÍA DE LXS JOVENES COMBATIENTES

El 29 de marzo es el día en que la memoria combativa se vuelve acción a través del presente contínuo de la confrontación anárquica con el mundo del poder y la autoridad. Es un momento en que el choque con las fuerzas del dominio recuerda que en dictadura y democracia el Estado oprime, tortura, asesina y encarcela y que en todo contexto histórico las voluntades indomesticables acechan los planes de los opresores para ponerlos en peligro y forjar su destrucción.

Desde su origen en dictadura conmemorando a los hermanos Vergara Toledo, el 29 de marzo constituye una fecha que no ha podido ser pacificada, recuperada ni exterminada por la institucionalidad y el reformismo, por lo que el poder y su prensa servil intentan despolitizar su conmemoración. A la vez, cada año se levantan actos conmemorativos, barricadas y ataques a la policía en los que participan enemigxs declaradxs del poder junto a la juventud salvaje de barrios y poblaciones.

In March and all year round: memory, solidarity and anarchic agitation against power (Chile)

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

March is a month that is particularly full of milestones that invite us with special strength to take to the streets and spread the anarchic agitation, with memory and solidarity as insurrectionist tools of action.

Among these milestones is the so-called ‘Women’s Day’ (March 8), a day that like other commemorations has been assimilated by reformism and the market, offering us the possibility to spread anti-patriarchal ideas and link them with anti-state and anti-authoritarian critiques, marking our differences with social-democratic, leftist and / or authoritarian feminism.

Another important event that occurred in March was the ‘Pampa Irigoin massacre’ (also known as the Puerto Montt massacre), which occured on March 9, 1969 under the government of Eduardo Frei Montalva. By order of the Minister of the Interior, Edmundo Pérez Zujovic, police agents murdered nine villagers who had illegally occupied a plot of land to live with their families outside the city. As revenge for what happened, Pérez Zujovic was assassinated in June 1971 by members of the armed left-wing group Organized Vanguard of the People (VOP).

Also this month, March 10 marks the sixth anniversary of the murder of comrade Lambros Foundas who was shot dead in Greece during a shoot-out with police after attempting to steal a car. Lambros was a member of the anarchist guerrilla organization Revolutionary Struggle, and as his comrades stated later, the theft of the vehicle was part of a planned operation. (more…)

29 de Marzo 2015: Expansión de los disturbios y un paco muerto ($hile)

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

El 29 de Marzo de 1985 la policía montaba un operativo para aniquilar a Eduardo y Rafael Vergara en el sector de Villa Francia, ambos orgullosos miembros del MIR son acribillados por la policía. Desde esa fecha que se conmemora el día del joven combatiente en recuerdo de todos los rebeldes asesinados a manos de la policía y muertos en combate durante dictadura y democracia.
Hace 30 años que el fuego de la memoria se enciende en los sectores combativos. Rapidamente a lo largo de los años el enfrentamiento se ha extendido a distintas poblaciones de la periferia que buscan atacar a la policía, devolviendo en parte la violencia cotidiana de esta institución de muerte.
En Valparaíso, el 25 de Marzo afuera de la UTFSM encapuchados cortan el transito en camino troncal urbano con barricadas incendiarias lanzando panfletos en conmemoración del joven combatiente. En simultaneo barricadas y enfrentamientos se desatan a las afueras de la Universidad Playa Ancha. (more…)
