Incendiary Attacks Against Transantiago Bus and Armed Attacks Against Carabineros in Santiago, Chile

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Communiqué received together with the photos on 08/16/2019:

I. Street fight in confluence with the new urban guerrilla

As groups, we use revolutionary violence to make visible the obvious contradictions that the systemic and changing operation of capital implies, depending on the State that legitimizes it as the social order of the day.

Each gear justifies the next and is consolidated as a structure under the protection of a judicial apparatus that condemns many to misery, softens abuses and violations of priests condemned to a life of confinement in palaces, and forgives tax crimes within the reach of 1% of Chilean citizens that conserve 26.5% of the wealth; an executive power in charge of justifying and accelerating the measures that favor the wealthy and thirsty group of tyranny that is on duty; a legislative power in charge of discussing among its caste the daily evolution of millions of people… and always protecting their privileged status in power.

Palabras del compañero Joaquín García en prision (Chile)

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

“Antes, oh astro, matinal brillabas sobre los Vivos. Ahora, al extinguirte, vespertino brillas sobre los Muertos”
-Platón-

“Murió Adonaïs y por su muerte lloro.
Llorad por Adonaïs, aunque las lágrimas
no deshagan la escarcha que les cubre.
Y tú, su hora fatal, la que, entre todas,
fuiste elegida para nuestro daño,
despierta a tus oscuras compañeras,
muéstrales tu tristeza y di: conmigo
murió Adonaïs, y en tanto que el futuro
a olvidar al pasado no se atreva,
perdurarán su fama y su destino
como una luz y un eco eternamente”

-P.B. Shelley-

Quería escribirle a un tú ausente, tal vez inexistente; pensaba contribuir a las palabras de Shelley y darle vida a esta hermosa elegía, pero nunca le he escrito a un muerto y esta no será la excepción.

Cae sobre mí una falsa responsabilidad; muchos, consciente o inconscientemente, creen que nosotros, sus compañeros, poseemos el derecho o la autoridad de decir quien fue realmente nuestro hermano, y la verdad es que es una tarea imposible, tanto porque dicho derecho no existe, como por la complejidad que supone escribir en palabras sobre nuestro compañero; tal vez podríamos, como aquel alemán, destruir a martillazos la imagen que de él se ha construido. Es difícil comprender la falta de vergüenza de quienes revindican el nombre de Kevin, aun tal vez sin nunca haberlo leído/conocido, han acomodado a su interés la imagen del nuevo mártir, ni siquiera hace falta preguntarse cuantos realmente estuvieron, no hace falta porque aquí no existe ni existió nunca la mendicidad, la misericordia le pertenece a las víctimas y quien murió fue un guerrero: como bien lo recordó un hermano; “Él era solo él, Kevin contra el mundo”.

Santiago, Chile: 3° Comunicado público de la “Red Solidaria Antikarcelaria con Juan y Marcelo”

Monday, December 3rd, 2018



Fotografía: Lienzo en el Encuentro del Libro y la Propaganda Anarquista en la población La Victoria el 13/10/2018.

La resistencia que hoy mantienen los/as compañeros/as en prisión es real, día a día tienen que convivir con lógicas tan podridas que a veces no se logra imaginar, desde la represión del carcelero, la autoridad penitenciaria, los nefastos códigos entre presos/as y la violencia que está totalmente a la orden del día y que puede culminar con la muerte, como lo fue el pasado 2 de Noviembre de 2018 cuando fue asesinado el compañero Kevin Garrido Fernández.

Esta pérdida es irrecuperable para sus familiares, amores, compañeros/as, para la lucha anticarcelaria y para quienes desde una perspectiva amplia practican la ofensiva contra el Capital y el Estado. A un compañero que actuó en consecuencia de sus ideas se le ha ido la vida a causa de una operación cómplice entre carceleros y presos al servicio de estos, lo que provoca un dolor y rabia inconmensurable, por lo que la indiferencia no es una opción.

ES/EN: Algunas aclaraciones necesarias sobre los posicionamientos de algunes anarquistas ante la muerte en prisión de Kevin Garrido

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

Some necessary clarifications about the positions of some anarchists regarding the death in prison of Kevin Garrido

Update: English version below

Hace unos días llegaron a la bandeja de correo electrónico de este blog dos mensajes informando sobre la muerte de Kevin Garrido, que recordemos, se encontraba cumpliendo condena por los ataques explosivos contra la Escuela de Gendarmería de Chile y contra la 12ª Comisaría de San Miguel. La muerte, al parecer, se habría producido a manos de otros presos durante una reyerta donde Kevin recibió varias puñaladas en tórax y abdomen.

Ante esto, muches se han apresurado a reivindicar a Kevin Garrido como anarquista. Memoria a corto plazo quizá, pues en uno de sus comunicados públicos emitido desde la prisión en noviembre de 2016 (se puede leer aquí) el propio Kevin dice “falsamente me tildaron de anarquista” y si bien más adelante expresa su apoyo y solidaridad a anarquistas en prisión, también expresa su apoyo a la tendencia ecoextremista, quienes no sólo se han apartado totalmente de un discurso y una práctica anarquistas asumiendo posiciones autoritarias y dogmáticas, sino que de hecho han atacado a anarquistas.

Instinto Salvaje: Regarding the Death of Kevin Garrido – Clarifications and Positioning (Chile)

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

INSTINTO SALVAJE: RESPECTO A LA MUERTE DE KEVIN GARRIDO, ACLARACIONES Y POSICIONAMIENTO. (ES/FR)

PER QUANTO RIGUARDA LA MORTE DI KEVIN GARRIDO – CHIARIMENTI E PRESA DI POSIZIONE (IT)

Касательно смерти Кевина Гарридо в тюрьме Сантьяго (RU)

05.11.2018

On November 2nd, Kevin Garrido was murdered in the Santiago 1 prison, located in the Chilean region. As a result of the news that has been circulating via the different counter-info web projects about this individual, we consider it necessary to make some clarifications:

Kevin Garrido, WAS NOT AN ANARCHIST, in his last communiques he made clear his affinity with eco-extremist ideology: “They investigated me, traced my steps and managed to hunt me down with their guns pointed at my head. They exposed my face on TV and the newspapers defamed me, with a cluster of idiocies in their argumentation. They falsely labeled me an anarchist and presumed that faced with a large number of policemen that I would bow my head and not respond. They sat me in one of their courtrooms for more than six hours to hear the words that the prosecutor was spreading with a vomit-inducing stench.”

Why mention this? Because the diffusion of information in such an ambiguous and irresponsible way on who he was, and minimizing his political position, makes one wonder at the ease of which a person can be called a comrade in the Chilean region. (more…)

EN/ES – Anarchist comrades Kevin Garrido and Joaquin Garcia sentenced to long terms (Chile)

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Finally, last Wednesday, September 5, was the reading of the sentences against comrades Kevin and Joaquin, these sentences can be appealed, but for the moment it is unknown what actions their lawyers will carry out.

The sentences were as follows:

KEVIN GARRIDO FERNÁNDEZ: 17 years of prison in maximum security, for possession of explosives and the placement and possession of explosive devices. In addition, sentenced to 61 days in minimum degree for illegal possession of a bladed weapon.

JOAQUÍN GARCÍA CHANKS: 10 years of prison in medium security, for placing explosive devices and a 3-year prison term in maximum security for the crime of illegally carrying a firearm.

For the moment this is what we can tell, as soon as we have more information we will update on the situation of the comrades. We make a call to demonstrate solidarity in the face of the prison sentences dictated against Kevin and Joaquín. No sentence against our comrades should be left without an answer.

SOLIDARITY AND STRUGGLE!

INSURRECTION AND ANARCHY!

FREEDOM TO KEVIN AND JOAQUIN NOW!

CHILE: SENTENCIAN A 17 AÑOS A KEVIN GARRIDO Y 13 AÑOS A JOAQUÍN GARCÍA

Finalmente el pasado miércoles 5 de Septiembre se realizó la lectura de las sentencias contra los compañeros Kevin y Joaquín, estas condenas pueden ser apeladas, por el momento se desconoce el accionar a llevar a cabo por lxs abogadxs.

Las sentencias fueron las siguientes:

KEVIN GARRIDO FERNÁNDEZ: a 17 años de presidio mayor en su grado máximo como autor de los delitos de colocación de artefacto explosivo y posesión y tenencia de explosión. Además de 61 días de presidio menor en su grado mínimo por porte ilegal de arma punzante.

JOAQUÍN GARCÍA CHANKS: a 10 años de presidio mayor en su grado medio por colocación de artefactos explosivos y a 3 años de presidio mayor en su grado máximo por el delito de porte ilegal de armas de fuego.

Por el momento es lo que podemos contar, en cuanto se tenga mayor información se actualizará la situación de los compañeros. Hacemos un llamado a demostrar la solidaridad frente a las condenas de prisión dictadas contra Kevin y Joaquín. Ninguna sentencia contra nuestrxs compañerxs puede quedar sin una respuesta.


¡SOLIDARIDAD Y LUCHA!

¡INSURRECIÓN Y ANARQUÍA!

¡LIBERTAD A KEVIN Y JOAQUÍN AHORA!

Communique for coordinated arson attacks against energy multinational RWE (Germany)

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

In the late hours of 25-11-16, we carried out coordinated arson attacks against the German energy multinational RWE in the vicinity of the Hambach opencast lignite mine. We have delayed this communique until now (11-1-17) for strategic purposes.

After a scout of the area, we split up and set fire to six pumping stations, two electrical transformers, one digger and a substation of the electrical grid.

Pumping stations are key pieces of the mines infrastructure used to lower the water table and prevent the flooding of the mine. They most often resemble a section of exposed pipe and an electrical box surrounded by construction fence. We prised open the electrical boxes using a crowbar and placed simple timed incendiary devices and a bundle of bicycle inner tubes inside to ensure the flames caught nicely.

The incendiary devices were composed of a candle secured to a firelighter cube with a strong rubber band. The candles burnt down slowly, then ignited the firelighters once we were safely away from the area. After smashing a window to gain access, we used the same devices to burn out the cab of the digger. (more…)

Hunger strike communiqué of comrade Kevin Garrido (Chile)

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

‘We will ensure that there is not one safe place left for them. Our weapons are charged and ready to talk… if words make them sweat, actions will spill blood’ Sebastián Oversluij.

Today I write to you from captivity, Mauricio Morales. These words are from and for you and I hope they reach you.. How many years have passed since you physically abandoned this disgusting modern world? Does it really matter? Not to me. Time is just time and the future is uncertain, the attack is here and now… There’s the present to be set on fire and blown up! The present war!

For me you didn’t ‘fall in battle’. Because, dying while attacking authority is falling? no, in my opinion, and I believe that many repeat this phrase mistakenly. For me you died attacking authority, with dignity and pride. You died with the courage of the warrior you are, amidst the triumph of Power and the respect of those who consider you a comrade. I don’t idolise you or any other, even less do I cry for you. I honour your courage, your acting in total coherence with your words, ideas and practices; a fighter of praxis. (more…)

Bombing of the Prison Training School of the Gendarmerie (Chile)

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

From Noticias de la Guerra Social:

During the morning, about 03.30am of November 19th 2015, one loud bang surprised a bastard jailer who was on guard at the Prison Training School of Gendarmerie. A homemade bomb made of compressed black powder starts a fire after being activated by a detonating fuse at a side gate of the guards school in the municipality of San Bernardo. The blast leaves no wounded, causing some damage to the infrastructure of the enclosure. Quickly Colonel Christian Alveal, Director of the School pointed to the press: “Always anarchist anti-systemic groups have threatened the School of Gendarmerie, its facilities and staff, and we permanently take safeguarding measures to effectively prevent events like these happening to people and damage to facilities.” For his part, Vice President Jorge Burgos said that “The investigation process is in full swing and I understand there has been policing results. This action will not go unpunished, which is important.”

After the explosion, comrade Kevin Garrido was arrested in a nearby area by the DIPOLCAR, who also stopped Joaquin Garcia, who is accused of this attack and the attempted bombing of the 12th Commission. Both were remanded in custody.
