(en) federacion anarquista uruguaya FAU: Declaration before the repression in the march against the interference of UPM in education (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 10 Sep 2019 10:54:25 +0300

The Uruguayan Anarchist Federation repudiates the police repression of the mobilization against UPM and the detention of five protesters on September 5 and the set of events that arose from there: detention of two other protesters at the door of the 7th and the beatings carried against the detainees in the dungeons of the police station. ---- Why this police repression? It is due neither more nor less, to the government's servile and submissive attitude towards the greater investment of a multinational company in our country. UPM is given land, water, free zones, tax exemptions, legal certainty and guarantees to minimize all labor disputes that occur while the pulp mill is being built; but the railroads and the railroad are also delivered and said infrastructure is built with the resources that should be turned over for the benefit of the population and not for a multinational.

The delivery of sovereignty cannot be greater. This is another chapter of the looting policies of our wealth before "their mirrors with brightness." It is the organization of dispossession of natural assets that must be in the hands of the people, to deliver them to the ruling classes at international level. In this way, the dependent insertion of the Uruguayan economy in the world deepens, we continue to be a country that produces raw materials but is increasingly caught up in the gears of world capitalism.

This forest-cellulosic project transcends governments, it is a country project that began in 1987 with the approval of the Forestry Law and is crowned with these pulp mills, which take the raw material processed to make paper in Finland, in this case. On the other hand, in Uruguay they have closed practically all the paper mills, which although it seems contradictory, is the concrete expression of the "country model" that those above want to impose on us: producing raw materials, unemployment and growing misery. All accompanied by club.

In these latest mobilizations, police violence has increased. Squeezes, arrests, beatings, use of "strips", presence of the Republican Guard and order to disperse mobilizations with rubber bullets without more, are becoming part of the new elements of this situation. It is that a right turn is being processed, whoever wins the elections wins. A twist of adjustment with stick, what is in discussion is the "dose", but not the adjustment itself.

The truth is that UPM needs guardians and has them. Capital has its repressive forces to impose its projects. The people know about Resistencia, they know about Lucha.
