(en) alas barricadas: Chile under state of emergency (ca, it) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 25 Oct 2019 08:52:19 +0300

In Chile it has been lived since Saturday in a state of exception in 5 regions of the country. The military is patrolling the streets and there are reports of police and military abuse of all kinds. After a week of protests due to the rise in public transport, President Piñera wanted to take a "coup d'etat" and end the protests on the fast track. Not only has he not succeeded but he has opened a crisis in the country of great proportions. Tomorrow, Monday, an attempt will be made to carry out a general strike, initiated by the port unions. To follow the events of Chile, the following twitter posts are recommended: #toquedequeda #ChileSeCanso #ChileProtests #EstadoDeEmergencia #ChileSeLevanta # ChileDespertó # RenunciaPiñera #ChileResiste

There is a psychosis environment fueled by the media, with organized looting of distribution chains, banks or markets and also attacks on police stations and banking centers. However, in neighborhoods won by drug traffickers there are attacks among those below, giving the feeling of chaos. These cases are used to justify the presence of the military in the street. At the moment there are 3 dead in a fire and more than 700 people arrested.

In this climate, leftist organizations also intend to move forward. The port unions announced a strike from Monday to which they will try to add other sectors in a national strike. This crisis may end up breaking the bipartisan center-right and center-left system that governs the country since the end of the dictatorship.

Very rare Chauffeur arrives with micro, it is parked 1 block from the barricades. 5 minutes pass and go to the barricades, and then leave ... pic.twitter.com/CO1UG7MOzl

It's not 12 o'clock and they are already repressing with extreme violence in Valparaíso. Condemnable! This is Piñera's response to the just and growing malaise of the people. What happens is the responsibility of the Arrogance of the Government and its abandonment to democracy. #toquedequeda pic.twitter.com/PEcKNDkFfq

From there, some libertarian organizations launch their manifests:

Before the social outbreak registered during the last days in the Chilean region, the Santiago Anarchist Federation declares:

1- We attended the collapse of the neoliberal experiment, thousands of voices echo in the streets demanding dignity. This outbreak is not accidental, it is the dignified response of the people to the precariousness of our lives, the looting of nature, the devastation of territories and ecosystems.

The struggle that has been unleashed in the streets is not only for the increase in the price of the subway, but for all these years of humiliation, deprivation and teasing of the bourgeoisie. Today peoples rise in all territories, dignity will never be taken from us.

This social fire was produced by the recurring and rebellious action of secondary students, who have been subjected to the militarization of their educational spaces. Young people without fear, full of rebellion and courage, have generated this spark that has burned "the oasis of democracy" in Latin America.

2- The government's response has been the wildest and most extreme repression; decreeing the State of Exception and installing the Touch of Queda, in turn, have filled the streets of their lackeys, pacos and militias have once again pointed their weapons against our class.

We will not be intimidated, yesterday, Saturday, all the territories resisted in the streets, ignoring state terrorism. Full of courage we have protected our populations from unleashed repression.

Unfortunately the repression has hit us hard, thousands of arrests, injured and dead people has been the balance of terror launched on our peoples. Again the minions of the State / Capital have fired against the peoples in struggle, fulfilling their historical role of defending the bourgeoisie and their property when the class demands their rights, they will be eternally despised.

3- It becomes completely necessary to articulate autonomous and grassroots organizations; assemblies and territorial coordination, are the organizational spaces that we must raise in order to project the fight and prevent this social explosion from being co-opted by political parties, who in a faint-hearted and opportunistic way have been absent from the streets and have only yelled through social networks. The construction of the Organized Community is necessary in order to strengthen our struggles and make the remo to those who have sold us for positions of power.

4 - We call to maintain the mobilization and making a qualitative leap by calling the GENERAL STRIKE, which allows us to articulate the different sectors in struggle; students, settlers, workers and marginalized. The struggle will deliver to us what the bourgeoisie denies us. We call to continue fighting to advance the recovery of our social rights, eliminate the AFPs, abolish the water code, reject the Social Integration Law and the TPP-11, socialize the transportation system and put an end to laws and measures repressive such as; safe classroom, anti-terrorism law, state internal security law, State of Exception and curfew.

Out with the Milicos de las Calles!

General Strike Now!

To root Anarchism!

To build Organized Community!

Long live the struggle of the peoples!
