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…)

[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…)
