From Chile, a pitch for the foundation of anarcho-Madurism

Armando Vergueiro

In the web page maintained by the Chilean Platformists in the Federation of “Libertarian” Students (FEL), there has been published, in a stellar plan, an official declaration from this grouping, which without a doubt will pass into history as the cornerstone of a new and picturesque version (or better misrepresentation) of non-hierarchical thought[1] It goes by the name “With the Venezuelan people and against the coup movement,” and it deserves that we should occupy ourselves, even if briefly, with the pearls that adorn it.

note by sabotagemedia: What follows are 2 communiqués; first is a claim for the decembre 23rd arson and the second is a text from País Mapuche explaining the situation around the communiqué by the CAM who denounces the action while incriminating others. Having translated CAM communiqués in the past we feel a responsibility to share this information and to reiterate our position: Struggles belong to those who fight them and no person nor group, indigenous or not, can dictate how people choose to struggle. All snitches are collaborators, thus our enemies.

Note: To understand what is happening, we must bear in mind the attack that occurred at Vilcún January 4, where two landowners (Werner Luchsinger Lemp and his wife Vivianne McKay) died during the burning of the mansion on their vast domain. See here the translation.

Leaflets remembering the assassination in early January 2008 of the Mapuche anarchist punk Matías Catrileo, were found on site. A Mapuche of the region, Ceferino Córdoba, was shot and wounded in the attack and is still in prison. Many other demonstrations and attacks, most of them anonymous, have also taken place as happens every year on that date.

Yesterday, June 28, in Santiago as in cities across the country, was held one of the many marches that have happened lately by students demanding free education in $hile.

The vast majority of demos that took place this year have not been allowed to pass through the Alameda, the capital’s main avenue. Rather they were directed to areas where there were few businesses and where police repression was easier.

During the demo, clashes with police lasted nearly four hours, during which were destroyed much of the road signs, TranSantiago bus stops and traffic signals. Banks and Claro telephone branches were attacked and two pharmacies were looted.

After a long process during which the $hilean state and the plaintiff institutions tried by all means to condemn the compas at any cost, they were absolved of all the charges, in the final hearing today June 1st, 2012.

All the charges such as placement of explosive device and terrorist financing were dismissed; also they raised all the cautionary measures against the 5 compas.
