(en) General strike and rebellion: the new Chilean way By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 3 Dec 2019 10:21:04 +0200

More than a month of rebellion in Chile. A legitimate popular uprising, where direct action, barricades, the General Strike and the fighting in the streets are the main elements. The tireless Chilean people reject the tutelage, conciliation and betrayal of the institutional left and heroically face the brutal repression of Sebastián Piñera's murderous and neoliberal government. Hundreds of blind people, countless political prisoners, rapes, torture and dozens of missing and martyrs murdered by prawns. Roadblocks across the country, barricades and heroic confrontations, the beauty of rebel music as an element of historical memory against dictatorship, the visual expressions of rebellion painted and glued everywhere, shields, molotovs, many molotovs.
It is a pre-revolutionary situation, with a defeated and cornered reactionary and pro-imperialist government that increases the brutality of repression and responds to the growing radicalization and resistance of the rebellious people on the streets. The Chilean working class and the fighting youth, with a decisive participation of the women of the people, in addition to the agenda against neoliberalism, took the anticolonial agenda for themselves, attacking the symbols of colonialism and the Mapuche people moving towards autonomous self-government. The duality of power is also expressed in self-convened popular assemblies based on the territorial self-organization of the working people. Parliamentarians on the institutional left are expelled from the squares by protesters after trying to save the government with an agreement for a Constituent Party under the reactionary regime.

The Chilean people make their own history after living years of brutal dictatorship and democratic farce. The courage and tireless popular resistance was preceded by years of grassroots organization and militant work by various combative popular movements and revolutionary organizations. The popular unity involving more than 140 people's organizations guarantees the rejection of agreements between the fractions of power to save the regime and the unitary convocation of a sequence of General Strike stoppages is another key to the insurgent process.

The rebellion also gave back to the Chilean people the will to live, the hope in the collective struggle zeroed in the suicides and there are several reports of people who overcame depression participating in the mobilizations in a privatized country sold as a neoliberal model in Latin America. The capitalist crisis deepens in the world, the rebellion that shook Ecuador, continues with the heroic Haitian people and is now taking shape in the Colombian General Strike and starting in Panama, with Chile as its largest bastion. Latin America will be the tomb of capitalism. The people are and always will be the secret of victory.

Long live the insurgency of the Chilean people and the rebellion in Latin America!
