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.

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…)
