(en) Santiago Anarchist Federation - November 5 - THIRD COMMUNIQUE (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 11 Nov 2019 08:59:05 +0200


Before the social explosion in the Chilean region, the Santiago Anarchist Federation declares: ---- 1- The current situation is uncertain, the people are still fighting, their courage has not been stopped by bullets or crumbs launched by the bourgeoisie. The oppressed class continues to resist bravely in the streets of the entire region dominated by the Chilean State, therefore we call to continue mobilizations in all our spaces: on the street, in the town, in the high schools, in the paste, etc. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we know that a process of attrition typical of so many days of struggle will be manifested, which is why it is extremely important to start building and strengthening the Territorial Assemblies, which must overcome the institutional vision of the "Citizen Council" and not turn in around a new constitution, but to generate a "list of peoples", where according to the autonomous and horizontal reflection in these assembly spaces we generate a common vindictive framework of the oppressed class, considering local realities and those of a larger scale, in order to generate new scenarios of struggle in the territories. On the other hand, it will generate an Organized Community that will give solution to the most immediate and daily problems in order to strengthen the self-managed power which will gradually dismantle the State in our territories. This process of accumulation of forces is fundamental so that this social explosion is not only an instant of catharsis but the beginning of an emancipatory process of the peoples. considering local realities and those of larger scale, in order to generate new scenarios of struggle in the territories. On the other hand, it will generate an Organized Community that will give solution to the most immediate and daily problems in order to strengthen the self-managed power which will gradually dismantle the State in our territories.

2- The Government's response has been to cancel the State of Exception and the presence of the army in the streets, however, the repression of the special forces - militarized police - has intensified. The repression has taken the lives of 25 people, there are more than 4,300 detainees, more than 1,600 people injured, more than 160 people have lost their eyes from the shooting of the repression, 19 people sexually abused, more than 133 people tortured, all according to official data that according to international organizations are below the real figures. As if the above were not enough, the Director of the Institute of Human Rights (NHRI) has declared that there are no systematic violations of human rights, showing precisely that all state agencies protect violence against peoples in struggle.

We call for international solidarity, for the release of all prisoners and for the memory of our dead.

3 - The political parties and their characteristic opportunism has come to light during all these days, of course that their leaders are not in the streets nor have they suffered repression, but they do not wrinkle when they proclaim themselves the "representatives of the people and their demands". This movement has never needed you or will need you in the future, you only seek to agree with the government on the blood of our murdered brothers, you only seek to oxygenate this democracy with a tearful smell, never represent our interests since They are not part of the oppressed class. We reject his "new social pact" since it does not represent any radical change for the people, we are not willing that our struggle be transformed into makeup that will give a "more human face" to the system of domination that denies life.

4 - The Constituent Assembly on the other hand has been a slogan that has had great echo within our class, it seems to be a magic lamp that rubbing it will solve all our problems as a class, such a vision has only deluded the peoples in struggle . Therefore generating a critical position and alerting our class seems tremendously important.

For us, the constituent assembly only comes to give an institutional solution to the conflict, it will only operate according to the interests of the oligarchy since as a class we have not yet developed solid and fighting organizations that can provide guidance in the best of the cases to that process, therefore, developing a constituent assembly in the short / medium term is nothing more than delivering the fate of this movement to those who oppress us, there is no correlation of forces necessary to express our interests there as a class . The realization of a constituent assembly immediately would result in a great tragedy for the peoples in struggle, since this would bury the class struggle for long years before this new "democratic,

On the other hand, others have understood the process of the Constituent Assembly as a slow and long-term process, where the accumulation of forces from the citizen councils and the territorial assemblies is directed to that instance where the pillars of the State are refounded From Chile. We also move away from this position, since for our consideration the process of accumulation of forces - which is a priority task - is not to develop a Constituent Assembly, but to generate the self-managed power of the oppressed class which formulates a new contract social without agreeing any letter with the oligarchy and where the pillars of the system of domination are buried forever: patriarchy and capitalism, its colonial strategy of domination, and its expressions: the Nation-State, the sex-gender system and the extractivism

We know that the political constitution, ties and maintains institutional pillars of neoliberalism which are necessary to transform, but that is not only a legal-political issue, since it is impossible to negotiate with the oligarchy in primitive issues of class struggle, such as private ownership of land and water, conflicts that go beyond the legal-political frameworks of the constitution. In this sense, although this agreed constitutional framework is made up, although it is branded as plurinational, popular and feminist and even recognizes nature as a subject of rights, the expressions of domination of patriarchy and capitalism are not altered, therefore our greatest task is to achieve a correlation of forces favorable to life,

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it does not mean that anarchism must be subtracted from the assembly instances, we must be, we must fight so that these self-convened instances do not serve as a platform for electoral interests, we must be there to provide the spaces with horizontal tools and autonomy in the political construction, we must be to dispute with the dominant ideology the precepts of the new society that we want to build, we must be because we are oppressed, because we are part of the peoples in struggle, we must be because it is a priority task to strengthen these spaces, so that, with each other, they can advance to their self-emancipation.

5- Finally we reiterate, to continue the fight in the streets and in the territories. To create and strengthen the Territorial Assemblies to generate the Organized Community, which is moving towards territorial control. To sow autonomous experience to reap self-managed power.

To continue the fight!
General strike!
To root Anarchism!
To build Organized Community!
Long live the struggle of the peoples!
Immediate freedom for the prisoners of the protests!
