(en) anarkismo.net: Chile: The Oasis of Chaos by Trempülkalwe (ca, it) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 21 Nov 2019 09:01:17 +0200


Tension in the Chilean territory, the most massive mobilizations since the return to democracy, and perhaps from history defy the supposed oasis of neoliberalism built in these 46 years after the coup, with a dictatorship that overthrew the Unity project Popular and matured a neoliberal economic model, no doubt an oasis for transnational entrepreneurship. The founding crisis that echoes in each demand raised by the Chilean people, is that model built in dictatorship where the extreme greed of the ruling class, which under the protection of a constitution founded to implement "The plundering of Chile", had no scruples in stealing absolutely everything. ---- The oasis of chaos
Tension in the Chilean territory, the most massive mobilizations since the return to democracy, and perhaps from history defy the supposed oasis of neoliberalism built in these 46 years after the coup, with a dictatorship that overthrew the Unity project Popular and matured a neoliberal economic model, no doubt an oasis for transnational entrepreneurship. The founding crisis that echoes in each demand raised by the Chilean people, is that model built in dictatorship where the extreme greed of the ruling class, which under the protection of a constitution founded to implement "The looting of Chile", had no scruples in stealing absolutely everything. The perfect model, designed by the prodigious group of students of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile sent to the University of Chicago to learn more about Milton Friedman's postulates, the so-called "Chicago boys" designed a model of liberal economy, a construction strategy in the long term that sustains itself without the need for a dictatorial regime. The extension of private initiatives to the detriment of the public was promoted, where the increasingly smaller State would only be responsible for subsidizing the most impoverished sectors, without guaranteeing social and human rights such as water, housing, education or health, made every aspect of life a tradable good in the market. With millionaire salaries either from the management of their companies or state institutions, the parasitic bourgeoisie,

The impetus of the secondary students once again ignited the flame of mobilization, motivated by a new rise in the passage of public transport made an explicit call for evasion that on previous occasions did not generate greater adhesion, was the drop that overflowed the glass, but as the slogans on the street announce well the rage and frustration of the people are not for 30 pesos but for more than 30 years of neoliberal dictatorship. After the resistance in times of dictatorship there has been a process of reame in the popular field, from the student organizations that managed to maintain a minimal structure and were not, fortunately, dismantled as the union and neighborhood structure, it was possible to sow a seed that today It bears fruit. To think that it is an isolated explosion is to ignore our recent history, we had a series of increasingly convincing sectorized protests (Students, against the social welfare system, against the health model, feminist movement, movement for water and the environment, etc.), where the responses of the different governments only it was the deepening of the model, as we say in Chile "that everyone scratches with their own nails", that is, that each person solve their problems individually, however the "save who can" does not give more, economic dripping does not enough to live. They increased the capacity of individual indebtedness to access basic services, strengthened labor flexibility where long hours plus transport time in large cities have become a true modern slavery regime, where once retired and retired, pensions are received well below the minimum wage. With high rates of mental health diseases and suicides, which until now generated international curiosity, one of the richest countries in the world with the most unhappy population in the world, generated precarious life in the most captivating way: free access to consumption. In a country where the boundaries between public and private are blurred to favor large businesses from the State and public policies, they have privatized everything under the legal protection of a constitution based on dictatorship that allows, for example, to be the only one country in the world where water is in private hands. A new rise in the transport rate was the trigger to show a structural crisis,

The street shouts "Until it is worth living."

In a world scenario characterized by the polarization of political positions, the right in Latin America shows its toughest face in a context where it boasts hegemony from democratically elected governments. The prelude to the mobilizations in Ecuador showed a people, mainly indigenous, not willing to accept World Bank guidelines in the direction of Chile.
On the second day of protest Piñera points out that "we are at war against a powerful enemy" pointing to some kind of organization responsible for the incendiary attacks on the subway and other public-private spaces giving the command to the general of the armed forces, declaring a State of Emergency and then the curfew. Hardly a communication mistake, which called attention to the disproportion of the measures taken as well as the levels of repression that were seen only in Mapuche territory. However, the assemblies have been evident, the looting and burning of private companies by police and military with a clear intention of unleashing social chaos, for what? Social networks allow practically a live broadcast of hundreds of calls for demonstration throughout the territory, as well as the brutality of the police forces, with more than 200 cases of eye trauma in three weeks, a historical record with no comparable record in any other part of the world. The obvious manipulation of the media, is no longer as problematic as it used to be, the gross misrepresentation to justify the excessive violence of the police through television or the raising of hypotheses that, following the directions of the OAS, point to The intervention of the Venezuelan and Cuban governments in the origin of the protests is symptomatic of the alarming fact that indicates that 90% of the mass media are in the hands of large economic groups. However, people are on the street and know that the media are lying. With more than 200 cases of eye trauma in three weeks, a historical record with no comparable record anywhere else in the world.

A constituent assembly as a political outlet has been raised by various sectors of the Chilean left as a way to channel social unrest, some see it as the means to change the foundations of the neoliberal model, however, the question arises if a model implemented to through one of the bloodiest dictatorships it will be possible to be radically transformed through a democratic way. Jaime Guzmán, another one of the prodigies of the dictatorship, was in charge of designing a constitutional framework for "the miracle of Chile" as Friedman himself would call it, a constitution at the height of the challenges of neo-liberalism and that ties in each paragraph the operation of the model.

The recent coup in Bolivia confirms the narrow margins of democracy that quickly disappears when the armed forces rise. The power of weapons remains a central issue for the implementation of any society project, when the elite is truly threatened by their regime, they do not hesitate for a moment to occupy war as a central strategy. It is worth asking if there is a depletion of the Nation-State for extractive purposes that effectively requires a new global order where the monopoly is absolute, without butt stones as are the progressive governments of the region at this time. Faced with this polarization, What can we expect if the Frente Amplio triumphs in the next presidential elections in Chile? The scenario is extremely complex and requires an in-depth analysis in order to respond adequately to the situation and think of paths from the revolutionary left.

Mapuche flags as a symbol of mobilization, another life is possible.

What is felt in the streets is the indignation of people facing more than 40 years of abuse, the absolute enrichment of 1% at the cost of 99% precariousness, the unease of living it daily, the impotence of dying waiting for attention from health, a miserable pension that is not enough to live generating an alarming rate of suicides in the population of older adults, is the high price of neoliberalism. Today rage is added to the militarization of cities, human rights violations, murders, multiple violations of children, torture.

In the framework of the mobilization, multiple neighborhood assemblies, councils, meetings are being developed, which require a new constitution for Chile, with the conviction that a new social pact will quench the thirst for justice and equity. But trying to unravel the tangle of the story that is being built freehand, what is it that the Chilean people who are on the streets are looking for? What are we willing to defend with life if necessary? Or, sadly, we can ask why did those 42 people killed by the Chilean State die? What is the project of society, the way of life that drives us to defend, what is the territory (which includes much more than a piece of land) for which we are willing to fight. When answering these questions,

A radical transformative exit is not possible within the margins of the Nation-State, this forces us as revolutionaries and revolutionaries to weave internationalist networks and think together the future of the planet that has been devastated by capitalism, the unity of the peoples in struggle to generate new forms of links outside the imperialist logic, a joint work from mutual respect and deep learning, which is able to harmonize our passage through the earth with the existence of other beings, be part of life and not of the destruction, there feminism has a lot to say. Traditional indigenous peoples, such as the Mapuche people in southern Chile and Argentina, who maintain their ancestral knowledge retain organizational forms that promote the development of communities,Küme Mongen (Good living). This struggle of more than 500 years for the survival of colonization is also an interpellation from our roots. Are we willing to leave behind the old patriarchal, capitalist, racist world, really with all that that implies?

From the bowels of capitalism,
Pu lamngen, an affectionate greeting of solidarity and organization, internationalism was never as essential as in these times.
Marichiweu!
