(en) [Chile] Santiago: 20th day of the social uprising By ANA

Date Thu, 14 Nov 2019 08:12:17 +0200

WE WANT TO CELEBRATE ABOUT THE RUINS OF CAPITALISM! ---- The strategy of decentralization and taking the conflict to the rich neighborhoods worked better than expected, thousands of people adhered to the call to manifest around the Costanera Center[one of Santiago's largest malls]. After the police crackdown, multiple groups dispersed, generating various outbreaks of conflict. Banks, pharmacies, fast food chains and AFPs were collectively expropriated and destroyed by hooded men. ---- The whole axis of Providence was blocked from Manquehue to Piazza Italia. The call is again to join on Thursday, the 7th, and on Friday, the 8th, in the symbol of capitalist consumption. ---- Memorable moments were experienced by strangers who attacked the headquarters of the ultra-right Independent Democratic Union (UDI) party, smashing the entrance to the property and creating chaos inside. Protesters also removed furniture from headquarters to create a barricade. In the graffiti and as indispensable seal of the Revolt was an "A on the ball". The whole political spectrum came out to condemn the action, calling it an attack on democracy.

Within a few blocks another group destroyed and vandalized the monument to the ideologist of the civic-military dictatorship Jaime Guzmán.

A collaborative, self-organizing human stream built an impressive cobblestone barricade, hand in hand passed the rocks with which they were erecting an impressive work of rebel engineering. Impossible for the armored cars to circumvent the imposing barricade.

A beautiful custom is being created, that hooded climb on the armor that launches water and sabotage the hose, making it unusable. It happened today in Providencia and in the city of Porto Montt.

In Puente Alto and Renca Square, students faced a band of police for hours. In Renca they attacked with stones and Molotov bombs a police station. Five prawns were injured.

In Piazza Italia thousands of people continue to gather, and clashes with the police are frequent.

The day before, police entered a school after the assembly decided to occupy it, and one of the carabineers fired bullets from point blank at two students inside the educational establishment. The smaller ones were injured in their limbs.

Throughout the journey the "No + Tag" movement blocked urban roads. Looking for a "Perdonazo", forgiveness in the fines of dealers.

Faced with the threat of sabotage from Barras Bravas[soccer fans]the Libertadores Cup final in Santiago is canceled, the national championship is still suspended and the soccer players' union refuses to play on the bodies of the Uprising.

At night, hooded "Villa França" and "La Victoria" attack police with incendiary bombs.

After twenty days the Social Uprising is still alive and one of the reasons is that it has no leaders or leaders. Let us not be manipulated by political parties and their requests, we continue to anarchize all possible spaces.

Today we have completed twenty days of joyful collective resistance, but we have lived a lifetime without any respect for authority.

Prisoners and prey of the Uprising, to the street!

See you at the barricades!
