(en) [Chile] Santiago: 24th Day of Social Uprising By ANA (pt) [machine translation]
Fri, 15 Nov 2019 09:02:14 +0200
The government's strategy of wearing down the protests had no effect, now they call for
division among the exploited. By all means, they try to raise awareness with the talk that
if the protests continue, wages will decline and labor will be lost. That the Uprising is
a dangerous thing for microenterprises... Power and the media encourage "job protection"
and private property. They want to pressure the poor out of fear and make them question
their neighbors to silence the protests. The psychosis of "yellow vests" to protect their
homes from invisible enemies shifts to business districts, where workers as oppressed as
protesters stare at them with sticks, stones and even machetes. Performing a job for the
police that serves only the powerful and their interests.
The eruption of hooded men in some elite neighborhoods has caused panic in the most
privileged sectors. In Manquehue de Santiago or Reñaca de Viña del Mar, wealthy blond
people dressed in odious "yellow jackets" and gathered to defend their lifestyles and
properties. In their hands they carried baseball bats, irons, golf and hockey sticks,
their belts concealed firearms. Despite the threats the barricades were erected at their
corners. The tension between the two sides was total and the spark that would ignite the
anger was about to explode.
The highest point of this clash occurred when protesters took to the beaches of Reñaca in
a festive mood, a man got out of the vehicle and shot several times at the group, injuring
one of them in the leg. The name of the person using the weapon is John Cobin, a gringo
and white supremacist, declared a worshiper of Pinochet and the Chilean neoliberal system.
The event created total chaos in the resort, anger overflowed and hundreds of people
burned all the capitalist icons of the place.
Not even the postponement of Teleton, one of Chilean's most beloved institutions, could
overshadow the beautiful Social Uprising.
In Italy Square, renamed "Dignity Square" by rebels, fewer people gathered. Among those
who came to "zone zero" was an anonymous man who distributed 500 goggles to protesters.
Most of the weekend's unsubmissives participated in activities in neighborhoods and
territorial assemblies, where they collected medical supplies to treat the injured.
Hundreds of cyclists organized themselves and cycled to the Santa María Clinic to show
solidarity with Gustavo, the 21-year-old who was attacked with bullet bullets and was
injured in both eyes, becoming blind.
On Hill, strangers attacked and set fire to the local court.
Hackers have created an application with the addresses of police members, your neighbor
may be a footman and sniffs what will happen in the air. Blow by blow we will return your
There are 4500 detainees during the 24 days of clashes, we need to make them feel our
solidarity inside the bars.
We are still on the streets, without leaders or political parties. Organizing ourselves
horizontally, autonomously and self-managed.
WE ARE A DANGER FOR YOUR ORDER!
Let's be the benzine bottle of Revolt Social!
IT'S NOW OR NEVER!
