(en) ait russia: Ecuadorian anarchists on recent social protests -- Nothing is over, it is only just beginning! [machine translation]

Date Mon, 21 Oct 2019 09:29:32 +0300

The long days of performances showed us that mutual assistance exists and that libertarian utopia is still alive. For several days, El Arbolito Park and its surroundings turned into a place where people protected, fed each other, cared for each other, treated each other and helped each other. Food, medicine, and clothing were transported continuously, and on the barricades, the People's Guard repulsed police attacks and removed any tear gas bombs that could pose a threat to brothers and sisters inside the park. ---- And at the same time, there were hands to prepare food from the products that they brought, there was never a lack of food, bread; at every step, someone offered you water, juice, fruit, or a basket of food, welcoming you and inspiring you to continue the struggle.

One could see long chains of people passing stones for building and strengthening barricades. And on the cry of "Doctor!" the team hurried to help comrades wounded in the fight.

So each and every one of us helped and contributed to the battlefield, in a chain, in building a roof over our heads, in the kitchen, in the medical team and in every other place, which made this performance possible.

We live in a class struggle and were able to realize that there are parasites that pursue their own interest and are easily ready to kill or use all the power at their disposal (the police and the army) to preserve and protect their privileges. And we also realized that we do not need them, we realized that they are our enemies.

We also learned that no one, absolutely no one can trust the police, and that, just as the bourgeoisie are our enemies and can never be a people, just like those who wear uniforms and fight on the side Tirana.

But, first of all, we realized that a popular speech gives results, that organization and effort can change things, and that those who are at the top are afraid of us - they are afraid because they know what we are capable of. And now they will be even more afraid of us, because we also know this.

We remain alert and critical, as this is just a small demonstration of what we have yet to achieve.

Thanks to all the comrades who fought in their trenches with conviction and not knowing fatigue, not having time to either sit down or sleep. We can rest and sleep tonight with a clear conscience, but tomorrow the struggle will continue. And we know that we will come to her with the conviction and courage that we showed in this battle.

Nothing is finished, it is only just beginning.

Anarchists of Quito ( http://blog.cnt-ait.info/post/2019/10/14/EL-Arbolito-es )
In just a few words

People are killed, injured, arrested.

The masses spontaneously rush to the fight, to the streets.

Every day the intensity of protests grew.

Pigs and soldier brutally crushed the people. We are being killed and injured. We clearly confirm that they are not a people, they, together with the masters, are against the people.

The cowardly government fled to Guayaquil because Quito reached such a state of street fighting that it could no longer hold the government in this city.

The local bourgeoisie wanted immediate surrender, the stones of the center were important for it, not the dead, but these dead won.

The agreement with the IMF was canceled, but the IMF remains in the country. I managed to win the victory over the agreement, the tip of the iceberg. But the iceberg has not gone away, it will continue to harm us and plunge us into a severe crisis.

This transitory government has set a bloody precedent that will be taken into account by the subsequent government and all those who follow Moreno.

Moreno continues to blame Correa for the exact same shit.

The media only tells what is convenient for them. There is no famous journalistic "impartiality", on the contrary, they are together with the authorities, which is quite natural.

The peasantry has powerful power. They have a libertarian impulse, but lack knowledge of the idea. And it is the duty of the anarchists to begin, finally, the work of organizing and educating the people.

Finally, it was confirmed with full clarity that the people and the masses are gaining their rights in the streets, and not through voting and bourgeois media. The way is in the struggle: by building barricades, and not by voting for the "lesser evil."

These days have become a school. A report will soon follow with better analysis, background, conclusions, etc.

Fraternal gratitude to comrades around the world for their solidarity, for their response and struggle everywhere where Ecuadorian power is present. Thank you, comrades, your spirit inspired us to continue the struggle. Thank! Today the struggle continues - in the form of an organization.
