Translation note: the following letter written by the imprisoned anarchist comrades Nataly, Enrique and Juan, was written for the SOLIDARIDAD A FLOR DE PIEL tattoo and body art convention that was held in solidarity with the prisoners of the social war in Santiago on November 4th.
These words were born and flew from the prison cells of San Miguel, the special high security unit and the former pententiary, to send a greeting of complicity that we dedicate to the comrades who have organized and given life to the SOLIDARIDAD A FLOR DE PIEL tattoo and body art convention…
With these first words from within the torture centres, we would like to send fraternal and complicit greetings to those who, at the intersection of rebellion and insubordinate creativity, organized and participated in this anti-prison initiative…a solidarity initiative for those who feel the bitter taste of prison every day – the anger, the frustration and the indignation of not being able to materialise the war because they are surrounded by bars, cameras and guards… (more…)

The trial against the compañerxs began on March 24. It was expected that the trial would be long and exhausting, and it has been so far, since the prosecution had announced the presentation of 186 witnesses, 87 experts, 231 documents and 648 pieces of evidence.
As was previously reported at the beginning of the trial, the accusations of and convictions sought by the prosecution are as follows:
* Enrique Guzmán: Accused of making the explosive device used at Police Station No.1 in Santiago Centro. This charge has been formalized under the anti-terrorism law and the prosecution are demanding 10 years imprisonment.
* Nataly Casanova: Accused of making the explosive device used at Police Station No.1 in Santiago Centro, of placing the explosive device in the subway car at Los Dominicos metro station and possession of material for the preparation of explosives. The charges have been formalized under the anti-terrorism law and the prosecution are demanding 20 years imprisonment.
* Juan Flores: Accused of placing the explosive device used at Police Station No.1 in Santiago Centro, of placing the explosive device in the subway car at Los Dominicos metro station and the placement of the explosive device at Subcentro.

Athens: Explosive attack against the bookstore of Adonis Georgiades, Politician of New Democracy by CCF – FAI/IRF (Greece)
Wednesday, April 5th, 2017
Responsibility claim for the attack on Adonis Georgiades‘s bookstore.
On 3/15 we placed and detonated a clockwork explosive device at Adonis Georgiades’s bookstore at 263 Kifissias Av.
Adonis Georgiadis is a well known to all … picturesque, saturated and at the same time, a ridiculous political figure, who over the years moves within the (far)-right milieu according to his interests. Now an MP of New Democracy (the main right wing party) he does not miss any opportunity to propagate the neoliberal ideas whether in the parliament or in some television broadcast, being addicted to television as a TV persona. When not selling his nationalist noonsense (such as the books of Kostas Plevris – national-socialist figure) he makes “gifts” of 65 million euros to pharmaceutical companies who trade in human life. Specifically, Georgiades, as health minister in 2014, changed the pricing of drugs in favor of the pharmaceutical industries particularly favoring the Novartis company. Combined with the fact that his wife’s name featured in the Lagarde list, it’s proven that the TV booksalesman does not limit himself to book sales. (more…)

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…)

During the first week of December, the trial preparation was concluded against the comrades Nataly, Juan and Enrique who are accused of various explosive attacks against police stations and metro stations.
In this bureaucratic / judicial instance it is sought to establish what evidence will be presented in the oral trial.
We must remember that these comrades are being held in the former penitentiary, the maximum security section and San Miguel Prison while the prosecution for their part raises accusations that seek to sentence them for decades and decades of imprisonment.
It is expected that they will soon set a date for the completion of the trial as a culmination of the democratic inquisition to punish the rebellious insurrectionists.
All our solidarity with Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzman!

During the last days of August, the courts accepted the request from the defense for the comrades Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzmán who were seeking to re-open the investigation into the charges under the anti-terrorism law against the comrades. The intention of the defense is to gain access to a video that police claimed was key to their investigation, a video that neither the prosecution nor the police want to hand over.
The investigation period has been extended for another 30 days.
The prosecutors, faithful to their dishonesty declared: “The office of the prosecution has worked very seriously and very meticulously. The evidence in the investigation folder has been in the possession of all the participants from the beginning.”
Solidarity with Juan, Nataly and Enrique!

Comrades Tamara Sol and Natalia Collado have sent this statement on the occasion of the following initiatives: Anti-authoritarian Day for comrades Tamara Sol, Natalia and Nataly at the Libertarian Library Manuel Rojas. Sunday, July 17; 1st Antiauthoritarian Café Literario at the Kanno Suga and Denjiro Kotoku library. Saturday, July 30.
To the comrades, those in affinity, to those present. We were surprised to learn of this initiative, and we consider it very highly knowing that it is an initiative that comes from people whom we do not know or with whom we have no ties, who as individuals and as a group feel the desire to come together in an act of solidarity and affinities, which we greet with the affection and strength that we receive and which gives us the energy to face the prison context as we would like to.
Three weeks have passed since we found ourselves in the maximum-security section of the prison where, unlike the rest of the prison population (the other pavilions), we cannot get out of the section unless handcuffed and with a guard at our side to control us. Likewise we are prevented from participating in learning or recreational activities apart from going out a couple of days to play women’s football at the field. (more…)
Texto de compañeras en prisión a 5 años del asesinato de 81 presos en la cárcel de San Miguel (Chile)
Friday, December 11th, 2015
A 5 años del asesinato de 81 cabrxs en una prisión del Estado Chileno
Hoy nos parece necesario transmitir nuestros pensamientos y sentires
para combatir la prisión y el olvido hoy desde nuestra realidad.
Día a día las prisiones ejecutan el asesinato de millones de seres en el
mundo. Vivir dentro de las jaulas de la humanidad significa tortura
constante. La institución carcelaria como una estructura social, mental,
y física concreta el propósito del Estado de mantener su actual sistema
de dominación, legitimando a través de ella la lógica del poder, en la
cual el Estado se alza como protector de una ciudadanía pasiva que
contribuye en su mantención y existencia sin jamás cuestionarla.

Anarchist comrades Juan Flores, Guillermo Duran and Nataly Casanova

“Hoy en $hile, como en Grecia y España, se castiga la solidaridad, el amor y sus bellezas”
Saludamos a lxs compañerxs Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores y Guillermo Durán, quienes desde el 14 de abril iniciaron una huelga de hambre exigiendo la liberación de Enrique Guzmán (detenido durante la tarde del
6 de abril y puesto bajo prisión preventiva), el cese de los hostigamientos contra sus cercanxs por parte de la miserable institución de Gendarmería y los brazos represivos del Estado, exigiendo también el cese del régimen de aislamiento al que ha sido sometida la compañera Nataly Casanova.
En estos meses de prisión preventiva lxs compañerxs han enfrentado con dignidad las maniobras represivas de los carceleros, sin retroceder un milímetro en sus convicciones de Guerra e ideas de libertad. Desde la calle solidarizamos incondicionalmente con ellxs, reconociéndolxs como compañerxs y como parte de nuestro mismo combate contra el Poder y toda Autoridad.
SOLIDARIDAD Y ACCIÓN CON LXS COMPAÑERXS EN HUELGA DE HAMBRE DESDE EL 14 DE ABRIL!!!
ADELANTE, Y EN PIE DE GUERRA!!!
