(en) Chile. SOLIDARIDAD #13 September-October 2012 - editorial (ca) [machine translation]

This second half has been filled with countless attempts and efforts by mobilizing segments of the popular movement and student. Without a doubt, are the demands of the high school students and those most strongly been felt trying to continue the process experienced last year, maintaining some degree its massiveness, cover and legitimacy. But also become important as the processes that are occurring in the province of Arauco, which although they have achieved so far foothold at all, if they realize a degree of organization that has already been experienced elsewhere in the country, as Magellan, Calama and Aysen. ---- Against this background, the government's response was not novel; repression at all levels. We have seen violent evictions, hard days of repression in demonstrations, marches ban, allegations of torture in detention, as well as sexual harassment, mainly secondary students.

Alongside its commitment repressive, the government has opted for the division of the student movement, particularly to secondary organizations and CONES ACES. By betting delegitimizing with more radical leaders, which is evident in the case of a suspect ACES and nod toward a more moderate alternative, the government has begun to play his cards to weaken the secondary motion.

Moreover, there have been elections Directory Confederation of Workers (CUT), the principal body weakened Chilean trade unionism. Some items attract attention in this process. First were the media choices of the past 10 years, and not only by the importance of the position but also because ventilation corrupt and fraudulent practices of previous management and electoral process itself. In that sense, a climate of apparent competition and dissent, led by Cristian Cuevas, head of Codelco's subcontractors and active Communist, was the focus on elections in recent months Does the outcome? The same list of PC composed Cuevas, but led by a leader of the College of Teachers, Barbara Figueroa, very close to its president Jaime Gajardo and no criticism of the conduct of Martinez, wins the election, proclaiming Figueroa as new president CUT. All this smacks of a comfortable agreement between the leaders of the PS and PC.

This stage of mobilization that have not yet accumulated the necessary strength, but that does not seem to be easy prey to fear, repression and other government desarticuladores attempts, going little by little framing an election approaching. In less than two months from the publication of this issue of Solidarity, municipal elections will be held and no doubt will be crossed by several ways to read the special moment in the country. We will have a right to raise his head trying social legitimacy at all costs, betting order, to the uncompromising defense of the model and showing in any way the supposed benefits it would provide social majorities. We will also see an opposition "extended" with the PC, without even blushing presented as mobilizing processes themselves all the Chilean people, particularly the student movement. And finally, make irruption other minority forces, stationed on the left of the PC, which will raise a bet itself in building community power, always in the framework of possibility that the existing institutional grants.

No easy task for the movement. There can be no rest or anxiety in these times. We believe they are priority joint spaces and construction program being built from the grassroots organizations. Today must socialize the discussions are not yet completely scattered by the people themselves and raise flags that are committed to building popular power.

On Socialism and Freedom!
Top and the fighting!

Facing the monopoly of information by those in power, we raise this humble alternative information, which seeks to explain the reality that the mainstream media deliberately concealed or misrepresented. From a libertarian perspective and class, we serve the organizations that fight every day and still believe it is possible to transform this reality. Support and make visible the struggles and interests of the exploited and oppressed and in this piece of land is the goal we have set, showing that despite everything, we're not quite asleep and are increasingly those who rebel and begin forge a libertarian horizon.
