(en) [Chile] Santiago: 50th Day of Social Uprising By ANA (pt) [machine translation]
Fri, 13 Dec 2019 07:25:35 +0200
December 6, 2019 ---- The flame is lit! ---- Who would say... It's been 50 days! ---- During the week, we talked about how the number of
people coming to Dignity Square has dropped dramatically. There was a call not to deteriorate from "the first line": "they left us alone and
are making us shit" was the phrase that echoed. ---- Some predicted that the Social Uprising was slowly dying. But the government, in
complicity with parliament, threatened "with the punishment of hell" those who continued to protest, which had the opposite effect and
people returned to the streets. ---- And they came back angry at those who know that in this fight you can't trust political parties and you
only have yourself, and that together with others we make a knot. A us that on this day exceeds one hundred thousand people!
On this eighth Friday of the Social Uprising, hatred was directed against the Broad Front and its pathetic apology for the anti-protest
vote. That is why, last night, they attacked the headquarters of one of their coalition parties: "Democratic Revolution."
A group of people from La Legua distributes luncheons, stylists get haircuts and, a little more, in a special chair, offer massages for
protesters, the beautiful thing is that everything is without a currency exchange. Solidarity and mutual support remain one of the pillars
of these fifty days.
Elsewhere in Zone Zero, clashes between hooded and footmen are violent. A three-meter police structure is carried on foot to the barricades,
and like the "Trojan Horse" from within, about thirty shields come out and then burn the "sculpture" amid applause and shouting. One moment
that left us paralyzed was when a hooded Molotov bomb was lit on his clothes, but he was able to put out the fire quickly.
With a giant slingshot, they throw stones at the cops. Shields with an A within a circle, among others, protect those who resist the attack
of the capital's armed arm.
Under the police monument, the uniformed men had organized themselves behind a trench of sandbags, hooded them out of the trench, and
appropriated the material to lift their own.
The liquid released by the armored fire hydrant is dangerously toxic, wet protesters get naked because their clothes literally burn the
skin. The chemical weapons used are of a power never seen before. They report that pepper gas reaches at least the seventh floor of
buildings near zone zero.
There is a greater presence of anarchist propaganda, various screens and anarchist flags. On the walls are the posters of the Revolutionary
Propaganda Group (GPR) and a mural by Alexandros Grigoropoulos.
At Shopping Costanera Center, another iconic site of the Santiaguinas protests, hundreds of people are able to enter and march inside the
mall. Outside, demonstrations are suppressed by police. Numerous incendiary barricades burned down Providencia Avenue, the largest on the
corners of Fr. De Valdivia, Los Leones, and Miguel Claro. At the last corner, a fascist named Orso Ricci threatened the protesters with a
knife and then kicked those who set up a barricade. The counterattack was straightforward, he was beaten and knocked unconscious, police
watched him until an ambulance picked up the law-loving citizen.
At night there are attacks on police stations at Central Station and La Granja, in the last two police officers wounded by gunshots, in
response the tanks shoot at the population. Yes, tanks!
In Concepción, civilian PDI agents infiltrate the marches and arrest hooded by throwing incendiary bombs. In the same city, police beat a
famous violinist and broke his instrument. In La Serena, fascists attack the tomb of Romario Veloz, killed by militias during the Curfew. In
Pucón, they suspend the known Iron Man triathlon.
For fear of demonstrations, they cancel at the last minute the graduation of the 4th graders of Liceo 1, and their loved ones make another
symbolic in a nearby place. Then at least one of them walks with her diploma in hand to Dignity Square and is greeted with thrilling shouts
The painful official figures so far report at least 11,000 people injured, 352 with eye injuries, 41 murders, 121 missing, 600 tortured, 12
raped and 100 sexually abused; We know that, unfortunately, the number is much higher. The number of detainees and prosecuted cannot be
specified, but the number of pre-trial detentions approaches 1900. So much suffering is not in vain that the word revenge comes true.
In Macul, they vandalize and puncture the tires of three private police cars.
Call to evade at all subway stations on Monday, the 10th.
We have clear goals and our actions seek to break their oppressive system, our smiles want their breakdown.
For brotherhood in war and for creating a fighting community!
THE REVOLT IS LIVE ... THAT THE REVOLT LIVE!
Honor for Alexandros Grigoropoulos (Greece), this one also goes to you...
