Received and translated on 23.07.2020:
Today, July 14, 2020, as part of a day of protest for the release of Mapuche and non-Mapuche political prisoners, roadblocks were reported in Hualpen, Lorenzo Arenas, Chiguayante and Talcahuano.
The following communiqué is about these events:
Today, Tuesday July 14, various individuals from the Bio Bio region dominated by the Chilean state, have decided to interrupt the depressing capitalist daily life, through simultaneous propaganda actions, to break the media siege and in combative solidarity with all those who have taken the decision to confront the bourgeois state in the city as well as in the countryside, in Chile and throughout the world.

Valparaíso: Sabotaje con explosivos a Minera Anglo Americana + Reivindicación de Escuadrones Revolucionarios Autónomos [$hile]
Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020
El 1 de mayo del 2020 en el sector de Nogales, región de Valparaíso un fuerte estruendo sacude el sector cerca de la pasarela Santa Isabel, en pleno toque de queda.
Esta explosión destruye el ducto de agua que alimenta la minera Anglo Americana, saboteando las labores de la minera.
Tras la detonación no existieron detenidos y aun cuando no se encontraron panfletos, tiempo después el grupo “Escuadrones Revolucionarios Autónomos” revindicaron el hecho.
La intendencia y la empresa se querellaron contra quienes resultaron responsables.
Comunicado nuevo grupo de Guerrilla Urbana y atribución de colocación de artefactos explosivos y enfrentamientos armados.

1 ″La incansable lucha del Oprimido”
El decadente sistema capitalista da sus últimos manotazos de ahogado y en todo el mundo se cae a pedazos el espejismo que ilusiono a millones con prosperidad y progreso. Muy lejos de eso las grandes mayorías vivimos agobiadas por deudas, con pensiones de miseria y en trabajos precarizados , imposibilitados de pagar por salud, por educación, por vivienda. Necesidades de primer orden que hoy se nos niegan. Y mientras el gigante se ahoga, va destruyendo todo a su paso. Hace oídos sordos de la ciencia, de los designios de nuestras culturas ancestrales y le importa un carajo el medio ambiente y la vida, con tal de seguir acumulando papel billete y ganancias. Es evidente y bien lo saben las comunidades que hoy están luchando por el agua, que la sequía no es por la escasez de esta, sino por el robo indiscriminado de multinacionales que se apropian de este vital elemento, abasteciendo a faenas minera, forestales, a la agricultura oligárquica de exportación, en desmedro del campesinado independiente y de nuestras comunidades y poblaciones. Pero no solo nos privan del agua para beber, lavarnos las manos, cocinar. Nos privan de la belleza de ver un rio correr, de bañarnos con nuestros hijos, de contemplar y posar la mirada en esos lugares donde nuestros abuelos se asentaron, y en donde hoy solo vemos polvo. Por eso y mucho más nos levantamos como una guerrilla urbano-rural y nos atribuimos los ataques explosivos perpetrados el pasado primero de mayo contra Anglo American en el Melón, y contra dos torres de alta tensión en la región de Atacama. También la recuperación de dinamita en el polvorin de la Empresa Nacional de Explosivos en la región de Antofagasta y el ataque armado fusil contra fusil en la población Pudahuel, en la ciudad de Melipilla. Policías asesinos y civiles fascistoides, verdugos y complices de la dictadura de Sebastian Piñera, La justicia sera la popular.
Pueblo Chileno la revuelta de Octubre no ha concluido. Nuestros muertxs, mutiladxs, violadxs y asesinadxs no han sido olvidados. Reivindicamos a la Nación Mapuche y como hermanos abrazamos juntos el Weychan . Somos el refuerzo de esa gloriosa Primera Linea que nos mostró que la barricada cierra la calle, pero abre los caminos.
Territorios a activarse
Escuadrones Revolucionarios Autónomos

March 25, 2020. The spread of Covid 19 around the world reached the territory dominated by the Chilean State, the rate of sick people grows exponentially and we assume the number of dead people will grow.
Far from speculating on its origins and roots, we believe that it is clear that today we have to fight against a disease on the one hand and the increasingly restrictive measures of social control that states seek to impose on us and others. The reality in prisons is no different, as shown by the riots, escape attempts and mobilizations that have multiplied inside the prisons, since enduring such an illness inside the prisons in practice is a death sentence.
The revolt that is shaking the foundations of the Chilean state has changed drastically due to the force of the context. We do not sit down to cry, but we rather assume the need to know how to overcome these new scenarios and also maintain the confidence that we will take the streets again.
From Refractario we call to remain alert regarding the situations inside the prisons: In the southern prisons where different Mapuche community members are imprisoned, in the Santiago 1 prison and the San Miguel prison where most of the prisoners of the revolt are held, in the High Security Prison where our comrades, prisoners of the social war, are being held hostage.
Communication with the prisoners is likely to become less and less fluid, with restrictions on visits and increasing bans looming. We’re out here, we’re with the prisoners, and we’re watching what might happen.
It is likely that in practice, due to the increasingly restrictive measures to move around the city and to communicate, the Refractory page will fall out of date. We will try our best to keep the site as up to date as possible within our capabilities. Since 2012, when we started and continued this project, keeping active in different periods in spite of different obstacles, our possible absence for this period will only be due to force majeure. As soon as we can, we will keep our website active and updated as it has been for 8 years now.
Remain vigilant for our prisoners of social war!
We’ll be back on the streets!
We’re gonna get our prisoners out of jail again!

ACERKA DE LA RESISTENCIA A LA PRISIÓN Y LA NECESIDAD DE EXTENDER LA LUCHA AUTÓNOMA ANTIKARCELARIA.
Una breve mirada a las experiencias de lucha desde el encierro, sus énfasis y los kontextos en ke se han desarrollado.
«Sin ningún Comité Central ni ninguna jerarquía que clasifique nuestrxs miembrxs, solo podemos conocer caras extrañas como amigxs a través de sus acciones. Lxs queremos, Ixs abrazamos, al igual que sabemos que otrxs lo harán. Otras células, secciones, grupos.»
Brigada de la Cólera
En tiempos de agudización del konflikto social la kárcel es el principal instrumento de kontrol y kastigo para kienes no se someten y se rebelan.
Históricamente el dominio a través de todos sus dispositivos ke sostienen el poder, la autoridad, el mundo de las jerarkías, el patriarkado y el kapital a usado la sanción normalizadora para kombatir toda forma de Resistencia ke atake y amenace su paz social.
Sin ir más lejos no fue sino en la diktadura de Pinochet en donde esta dinámika afectó masiva y sistemátikamente a miles y miles de Rebeldes ke la kombatieron entregando los mejores días de sus vidas.
Se reformuló el marko jurídiko fundado en la doktrina de seguridad nazional ke veía un enemigo interno al ke había ke aplastar bajo la exkusa de «kombatir el káncer marxista» según la voz de los genocidas de la époka.
Operaba la pútrida «justicia militar»:
Miles de muertxs, desaparecidxs, exiliadxs, perseguidxs, violentadxs, torturadxs son el rekuerdo imborrable y el triste legado de la refundación kapitalista neoliberal del imperio yanky a través de la insurrexión militar burguesa del genocida ejército chileno. (more…)

The murder of Santiago Maldonado has triggered a series of actions in Argentina. Santiago disappeared on August 1st, kidnapped by the gendarmerie, and on October 20th, it was confirmed that a dead body found in the Chubut river belonged to our compañero Santiago Maldonado. We hope that the guilty will suffer the worst possible vengeance.
Death to the murderous state, Santiago presente!
Today like last night we continue in the streets – SANTIAGO PRESENTE!
NOW YOU ARE PART OF THE EARTH THAT YOU LOVED SO MUCH
Sad are the hours that we are living. On October 20th, Sergio Maldonado (brother of Santiago) confirmed what we were all so afraid of. The body planted by the gendarmerie in the Chubut river is the compañero Santiago Maldonado.
The gendarmerie are responsible. The State is responsible. Because it was them who took him from the rebel territory of Cushamen on the first of August. (more…)

For Anarchist Comrade Santiago Maldonado, Let’s Make the Police and the State Disappear! (Chile, Argentina)
Saturday, September 30th, 2017
This September 1st marked one month since the disappearance of the anarchist comrade Santiago Maldonado at the hands of the police of the National Gendarmerie of Argentina. This took place within the context of the repression against a demonstration that included road blocks made by the Mapuche community Pu Lof in Resistance at Cashamen, in the Argentine province of Chubut.
While the anarchic agitation spread beyond borders, comrades in Argentina took to the streets to spread acts of revolt via propaganda and direct action. With arson attacks against the police, barricades and Molotov cocktails against government buildings, our comrades unleashed their rage at a situation that is as sad as it is real: the bastards have arrested and disappeared an anarchist comrade.
Because Santiago is an anarchist, and not just a young musician and artist, something the press and leftists conveniently leave out, in denouncing the state repression we make it clear that denial and silencing of the comrade’s political identity is another form of disappearance, erasing from the narrative the true motivations of his solidarity presence in the Mapuche community where he was at the time of his arrest. 
We have no advice for our comrades in Argentina, we believe in them and their conviction and autonomy to continue transforming their pain into rage, spreading chaos against the world of authority, and deepening and expanding affinities in concrete experiences of confrontation and agitation. (more…)

This audio is based on material from Voces de la Disidencia.
Alfredo Tralcal Coche, Pablo Trangol Galindo, Benito Trangol Galindo and Ariel Trangol Galindo are imprisoned precisely in the jail in Temuco, Chile, since July 9th of 2016, accused of setting a church on fire with only one piece of evidence against them: the statement of a witness without a face who claims to have seen a truck similar to that of Lonko Alfredo Tralcal Coche near the fire.
After one year deprived of their liberty, without evidence against them, without a set sentence or a reasonable date of trial, on July 7th of 2017, the comuneros decided to begin an indefinite hunger strike with the following demands: 1) fair trial within a reasonable date; 2) no to the use of the antiterrorist law 18314; 3) no to the use of witnesses without faces; 4) liberty under article 140; 5) repeal of the cautionary measure of preventative prison.

We can still be worse – Reflections and considerations on the month following the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado (Argentina)

WE CAN STILL BE WORSE
Reflections and considerations on the month following the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado
On August 1st, members of the Pu Lof Mapuche community in resistance in the province Cushamen barricaded National Route 40, along with allies in solidarity. They cut off traffic in solidarity against the legal proceedings confronting el Lonko Facundo Jones Huala (for the second time). Minutes later, cars and trucks arrived carrying about thirty border police armed with rifles. The peñis (Mapuches) began throwing rocks, responding to the presence of the bastard forces of order. The Gendarmerie advances to the shots, burning the precarious houses and belongings of the Lof, forcing the occupiers to retreat across a river. Santiago Maldonado (“Lechuga” or “el Brujo“) fell behind the rest. Some of the inhabitants of the Lof saw that the Gendarmerie grabbed Santiago; others testified as to hearing the police say they “got one.”
Afterwards, images and testimony began to circulate about how Santiago was missing, and that it seemed the Gendarmerie had taken him away in a “unimog” all-terrain military vehicle. The authorities were silent through this whole process.
On Friday, August 4, various anarchists and individuals in solidarity entered the seat of government in Chubut province, demanding Santiago’s return. The place was ripe for destruction. Computers, notebooks, windows, and decorations were all viciously destroyed, and fliers and graffiti were left behind referring to the repression in Cushamen. (more…)
Nemesis Project: Explosive / Incendiary Attack Against the National Confederation of Truck Owners by FAI-IRF (Chile)
Tuesday, August 1st, 2017
Translation by Insurrection News:
NEMESIS PROJECT ACT V
On the night of July 25, we attacked the building belonging to the National Confederation of Truck Owners of Chile, located on Almirante Barroso street in the city center of Santiago, with an explosive / incendiary device.
The National Confederation of Truck Owners of Chile is a structural link in the chain of domination and exploitation, taking an active part in freight transport and environmental looting in Chilean territory and Wallmapu.
They are one of the main beneficiaries of the IIRSA project, which has as one of its objectives the ‘improvement’ of road infrastructure for the transport of goods in the countries of South / Latin America.
They are also the first line of entrepreneurs working side by side with the Chilean state seeking to intensify the repression and police intelligence gathering in Mapuche territory, trying to stop without success the burning of trucks that is part of the autonomous Mapuche subversion in defence of its ancestral territory.

“Each individuality, group, tribe or original people have their own ways of resisting this system. However they have the same enemy who represses and oppresses them and the ultimate goal of their struggles is to live freely and autonomously.” – Compañero Carlos Gutiérrez Quiduleo
1. Brief journey on a path of resistance.
It is well known that the struggle of the Mapuche people has lasted hundreds of years. Even before fighting the Spanish conquistadors, they had already halted the advance of the Incan empire by preventing its advance towards the south of the territory now called Chile and forcing it to maintain its position in the central zone of ‘Chile’.
Also known are the battles and clashes with the Spanish conquistadors, where for more than a hundred years a war was fought that put in check the ambitions of the conquistadors to dominate the territory without any major obstacles, forcing them, after periods marked by extermination and captivity, to establish a border that allowed the Mapuche to maintain their territory south of the Bio Bio River.

An anarchist look at the forest fires in south-central Chile
And on the attempts of the power to take advantage aiming at the Mapuche and anarchist subversion.
For a couple of weeks, the expansion of various firefighting areas in the forest industry business in the south-central part of the country has been reported in Chile. These fires were spread over various territories and have resulted in irreparable damage to various natural ecosystems and native forests, reaching homes and causing the deaths of people and a large number of animals in what is already a true ecocide that is still continuing.
These forest fires and their consequences have become the subject of the news agenda in recent weeks, with the political, business and media class (dis)informing and imposing a version of the origin of the fires that omits- or leaves last – any responsibility on the part of forestry companies. In turn, given the magnitude of the catastrophe, several groups and organizations seek to support the devastated territories and criticize from various positions the way the government has tackled the problem.
