(en) Repression in Chile, libertarian communist organisation (ocl) call for solidarity

Date Fri, 16 Sep 2005 21:47:44 +0300

comrades, this is from our comrades in the in chile. please e-mail messages of solidarity to them:
This 11th of September, we got two comrades in Chile injured in the protest
that mark the anniversary of Pinochet's fascist coup and his bloody regime;
one of our comrades, Erika Jamett, she was shot by tear gas bomb in the
head and was left for days unconscious; the other comrade, Francisco San
Martín, was run over by the water cannon lorry, and was pushed against a
fence. While our comrades tried to rescue him, the driver didn't pull back,
but push forward, breaking his spine, turning his hips into dust, breaking
his legs and ribs. The most likely thing to happen, is that Francisco will
never walk again. His family will sue the police for attempted murder. We
will fundraise to pay for his surgery. Francisco as most of our comrades,
come from a working class backgorund of very little income and his family
are just not in the position to afford surgery. They have been really
supportative of our anarchist work, and they want to fight back.

All they need now is our solidarity to help Francisco to walk again
(something, that as I said, is very little likely to happen anyway). We
will try to organise something here in Dublin in order to support him
(people from the Chilean community), and we hope WSM helps us (is no
formalised decision yet). We beg for our comrades overseas to give us a
hand, the OCL will be fundraising as well. The two of them are militants of
the Libertarian Students Network (FeL) an organisation that gathers around
200 militants in students places from all over the country, and that has
close links to OCL.

All we need now is a hand. Any activity of solidarity, please let us know.
We will send you the account details soon. Thanks very much for everything,
and we will keep struggling!!! Arriba los que luchan!
