(en) peru libertario: "Anarchism against Sendero Luminoso" by Leonel Patricio Silva Montellanos (ca, fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 31 Aug 2017 14:38:39 +0300

The Maoist-Polpotian genocidal terrorism of Abimael Guzman and the Communist Party of Peru-Sendero Luminoso have no relation to anarchist thought and action. It is an insult to us that the political opportunism seeks to confuse those who do not know the recent history of Peru. Between 1980 and 1992 (Capture of Abimael Guzman), Peru went through a civil war that certainly included state terrorism but that was provoked by the insane and cowardly murder of the Shining Path (which did not even respect popular leaders and destroyed the reputation of the Left and socialism). With its genocidal and antihistorical logic, Sendero Luminoso despised the "Andean" (remember the massacre of peasants made by Shining Path in Lucanamarca and that according to Abimael Guzman was a "punishment operation" made with ax and knife "not to waste ammunition"). Let us also remember that Sendero Luminoso did not hesitate to enslave Ashaninkas natives in the Peruvian jungle, establishing oppression and violence in the midst of a peaceful community!

Sendero Luminoso did not intend to make any revolutionary changes based on respect and popular solidarity. Sendero Luminoso resorted to dynamite, car bomb, ruthless murder, preferably in front of relatives of the victim, to the symbolism of horror, we no longer remember when hanged dead dogs from the center posts of Lima, with the poster that Said "Deng Xiao Ping (" revisionist "Chinese leader, after Mao Zedong)" Son of a bitch "? What kind of socialism, communism, revolution, is based on cruelty and terror? Not even the APRA in its time of greater confrontation with Sanchez Cerro, Benavides or Odría, applied the fear like resource. Definitely, "our Videla", "our Pinochet" has been the insane and psychopath Abimael Guzmán Reynoso who called himself "President Gonzalo" in his delirium of grandeur, Drunk with hate and misery. PD We remember that the socialist popular leader of Villa el Salvador, Maria Elena Moyano who confronted them, flew her with dynamite, did MOVADEF and other neo-senderistas groups ask forgiveness of the country and demarcate the "Thought Gonzalo"?

Who authorized Sendero Luminoso to murder in his name? How was it legitimized? Was it recognized by a popular, union, self-managed assembly? Any struggle that is intended to be "revolutionary" and takes the path of arms is a lost struggle, since it has already internalized the use of fear, terror and death as resources. Perhaps, this is the revolution of some of the outcasts, surprising of people who appear as rebellious and rebellious, have they asked themselves if the people of the street, "of the town and of the neighborhood" sympathize with the bloodbath that caused Sendero Luminoso? But definitively, it is not my revolution, I will say it once more so that it is clear: ANARCHOSINDICALISM IS NOT TERRORISM.

I definitely reaffirm myself in anarcho-syndicalism. What is regrettable is that Sendero Luminoso put himself at the same intolerant, repressive and murderous level of fascism that he intended to fight, once again, with what legitimacy? If Sendero Luminoso, arose in 1970, why did not he confront the military government of Velasco and Morales Bermudes? They were cowards, they waited for the civil government of Belaunde to implant its regime of guillotine to the Robespierre. Curiously, Sendero Luminoso gave the "Bud of Light" to those who from the School of the Americas (Southern Command of the American army) designed the "Plan Condor".

A monetary crime (a matter of money and capital, typical of the corruption of the Alberto Fujimori government) can not be brought to the same level with genocide and premeditated and cowardly murder. Abimael "fought"? And why did he not triumph? Was he a charismatic leader of the masses? Was it Manuel Gonzalez Prada? Was it Manuel or Dolphin Lévano? Was it a Victor Raul Haya de la Torre? Was it a Jose Carlos Mariátegui? The assassins who rebelled in the penalties against the aprista government of Alan Garcia, coinciding with the meeting in Lima, of the Socialist International (socialdemocrat). Were they innocent and pure, missing and tortured by the police and the armed forces? If so, who is responsible for the beginning and development of the internal conflict that blew us to the Peruvians,
