A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

On the night of March 15, during a concert organized by
SHARP/RASH groups at the Entrenos club in the Bellavista
neighborhood, police decided to interrupt in order to inspect
the permits for the event... all was ok so they left, but not
without first threatening to let off tear bombs. A few minutes
later the 3 characters re-appeared to check if alcohol was being
consumed on the premises... but everything was in order again.
Not satisfied with this however, they decided to arrest a guy
that was selling libertarian material at a stall set up inside.

The people there quickly offered their support to the guy and
the police left... but then returned with reinforcements. They
attacked indiscriminately of age or sex and detained around 30
people who were taken to the police station. At the moment 4 are
still detained (two in the adult penitentiary, one in the San
Miguel juvenile penitentiary and another in San Joaquin). On
Monday 17, 22 people are to face charges in court at 9 o'clock.

All this was recorded on video by people of Señal 3, but the
tape seems to have disappeared. These events come on top of
those of last April 31 2002 in Valparaiso where the police
worked together with Neo-Nazi groups to try to stop the
anti-fascist movement by physical means. In fact, witnesses saw
these policemen speaking to some boneheads (Nazi skinheads).
