(en) Chile, "I assume this confinement as a political prison" letter from a fellow anarchist prisoner for the revolt (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 24 Jan 2020 09:06:54 +0200


When analyzing any edge of the prison, one must first establish or rather, make its history and its purpose visible. We are the ones in the dump of this society, another instrument of oppression through the law to perpetuate the privilege of the class society, made by power in its image and likeness, the cane would be like all the bad things in the tight system between cement walls. ---- The very existence of the cane is political, gear that makes the machinery of death of the State roll, social control, intimidation, isolation, be directed against whoever it is is necessarily to exalt the triumphant values of the bourgeoisie, competition, submission, exploitation, harassment , bourgeois individualism, violence; All this reflects his worst face in this place.
Here the children of violence, poverty and ignorance are raised, a school of fear that maintains the lucrative prison business, being a product of domination will never have a reforming end, which proclaims with the voice of a prisoner sick with rage . Nothing good can be taken out of confinement and uniformity, therefore, the mere existence of the prison reflects the type of system that governs us, has the color it has, is adorned as it is adorned, the existence of the cane has a political aim, therefore, for whatever reason, all presx is a political presx, because it transcends the filter of the law, which is the preferred son of power.

What to do with social cannibalism if there were no prisons? It is the question to dream ...

Build the conditions so that it becomes unthinkable to rot the children of the people to jail. That said, we must also recognize that there are very few (even) private ones with a revolutionary conscience and practice. The political field in which this place moves has changed a bit since the beginning of the revolt, in Santiago 1 a special module has been enabled where we are joined by protesters, molotovs, fires, looting, assaults on large capitals or repressive forces , they are the majority of the charges that they impute to us, but this is only the most recent history of the political prison, which in this country has a long history since the beginning of the existence of the Chilean State, which has swallowed and spit out millions of exploited who rebel, with the most diverse intentions, I think that all the prisoners are political prisoners, but not necessarily revolutionary. Even in this module, it is not about better or worse, but about the institutions and ends of its protagonists.

There are those who are anti-yuta and courageously went out to face the repression, there are goats, who, given the context, went out to loot large companies and capitals, something absolutely valid if you ask me. Although their participants have had a conscience of struggle and class, the medium and time spent transform these acts into seed to further rebel the enemies of the exploited so that the violence and its tools stop pointing between us and point up , towards the oppressors.

That said, I believe that the declared political prison is a matter of each prisoner, in the sense of exclaiming loudly that their actions and / or consequences fall within the rebellion against power. Admitting nuances and heterogeneity, each declares why and how he speaks and acts. I assume this confinement as a political prison, given my practices and ideas. This is not a whim of the ego but a consequence of where I get up, where there is no possible claudication. Most of here assume the prison as a result of their insurgent practices, with a greater or lesser degree of elaboration. We recognize ourselves in a collective struggle, not only since the beautiful date of October 18, but as the continuity of the struggle since domination exists, but I can only speak for myself,

I repeat that the cane is a political and class fact, an absolute reflection of this rotten society and that we cannot forget that those of us who are here are fed by our bodies, one of the largest and sadistic control systems that exist. But I also repeat that it is our intentions and facts that make us recognize ourselves as political presxes, because outside they try to intimidate them with fear of confinement, they do not know that we carry the torch of will and do not manage to bend, either outside or inside, there are that rescue the rebel seed to cross the meadows where the revolutionary ivy will be born, that of the assumed and conscious praxis that faces with strategy, strength and projection to power, with the most diverse tools,

Affection and newen out there,

To continue sharpening ideas

Try to live the anarchy!
