(en) sov santiago: Process begins for an Anarchist Congress in Chile -- Call to a pro-Federal Assembly

Date Sun, 8 Dec 2019 07:53:58 +0200

It has been a month since the social explosion, we see that our efforts in the various organizations and the call to work from the territories has been arduous, a situation to which perhaps it was not completely prepared and throughout these intense days it is normal to see a physical, mental and discursive wear. On the other hand, it is also thought that the response as anarchists could have been different and more coordinated, in order to capture in the population the principles and purposes of anarchism in the face of widespread disgust with the hierarchical institutions that dominate us. We see that in various territories the abuse and domination of the privileged class continues to be questioned, but without it being aimed at finding alternatives for a real liberation and transformation of our lives, we could exemplify that the current focus of the discussions that has led to deliver the effort only to a change of constitution, which we understand as the restructuring of a new oppressor. In other territories we can also see political parties through social organizations putting their noses, making them believe that they are representative of the people because they have been leaders or "social actors" for years, trying to validate the same power structures and privileges of one over the other that This social explosion originated. What would lead these new "social actors" to be the new bourgeoisie.

The different anarchist organizations have managed to articulate various activities, in other territories new organizations are being born, but we consider that this effort is a first step. History has let us know that this social outbreak and the level of response of people do not happen when we want, nor is it immediate, or by chance, they are processes that take decades of work and this is a great opportunity to move forward. The strength to maintain the fight will depend on each one, we need each other together to dream and to give a collective effort. It is time to take charge of the self-criticism of the lack of unity, because for various situations a federation of anarchist organizations has not been achieved, without, through these calls being individualization, the exclusion of people,

We believe it is urgent that the anarchists are organized and call for unity, leaving aside personal differences; Without this being understood that we would be ignoring the seriousness of certain facts, but at the same time, we understand that anarchism is the only political philosophy that is constantly self-critical, which makes us question and improve our actions.

Through the assembly that we propose, we hope to achieve concrete work in the short term and long term in order to create a united anarchist movement and aspiring to social transformation.

It is important to mention that although the call is being made through a particular organization that is ideologically oriented by anarcho-syndicalism, the call is not only to the anarcho-syndicalists and sympathizers of this, our purpose is not that a group or trend is position as the spokesman of anarchism. Feel involved in all organizations that pursue anarchist principles, means and ends.

We call to initiate a process throughout Chile, where the anarchists of all the communes and regions, hold local assemblies, to finally hold an anarchist congress of the Chilean region.

As SOV Santiago is part of the metropolitan region, the call we are initially making to the surrounding municipalities of Santiago, but we urge the organization of each territory, generating the necessary calls and thus achieving a cohesive movement.

In the process no selections will be made or projects will be neglected, from publishing houses to territorial organizations, from propaganda groups to student groups, from liberated spaces to cooperatives, everyone, including individuals who are not currently agitating, are invited to participate .

The assembly will be held on Sunday, January 5, 2020 and those who wish to participate please contact the mail:
