(en) [Chile] Patriarchy, the State and impunity are disguised as women By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 17 May 2020 10:57:21 +0300

Appointment¹ as Minister of Women and Gender Equality for Macarena Santelices, great-niece of ex-dictator Pinochet (1973-1990), author of such despicable phrases as: "The municipalities no longer supply. Social aid must be for our people: Chileans. Health, housing, we haven't even solved our problems!!! Urgent NO MORE IMMIGRANTS (sic) "and" It is not up to me to make judgments today, as minister, to comments I made in the past ", generated wide controversy and rejection from the population. It even validated the dictatorship, thus justifying state terrorism and human rights violations perpetrated (including torture of women, rape of pregnant women and a series of humiliations that constitute sexual torture). We want to question not only your appointment as minister of women, but the appointment of any position that remains within the traditional policy, which says it represents us, but continues to support a model in which inbreeding,

We do not need to be represented, we demand and occupy spaces to represent ourselves and build ourselves in solidarity of gender and class. Neither this government nor any other was truly concerned with fighting the macho oppression that is sustained by patriarchy. No state, no president, no minister, will safeguard our lives, since their interests always start from their business and accommodated privilege. The complicity of patriarchy with capitalism is something that constantly catches the eye and as anarcho-feminists we want to remember that WE DO NOT WANT OR NEED MINISTERS OR GOVERNMENTS, WE WANT THE SOVEREIGNTY OF OUR BODIES.

We will extend the networks of sorority, foster self-defense, and build bonds of security and protection to accompany and protect us among ourselves, away from the authorities, corporate puppets and right-wingers on duty.
