Chile: Free at Last! Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar onto the Streets!

SANTIAGO – Chilean Anarchists, Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, arrived this morning at Santiago’s International Airport, after having been expelled from Spanish custody and deported back to their home country.

Mónica and Francisco had been charged under Spanish Anti-terrorism legislation for the alleged bombing of the Basilica del Pilar Church in Zaragoza, on Oct 2nd, 2013, and were arrested a month after the incident. Spanish prosecution initially sought a 44 year sentence for the accused, but instead received a 12 year sentence in 2014. The Defense took Mónica and Francisco’s case to the Spanish Supreme Court, where the sentence was further reduced to 4 and a half years this past December, having dropped one of the initial charges. At the time, the Spanish Supreme Court recognized that the intent of the bombing was to cause structural damage to a religious symbol  and thus were charged for loses and damages.

As a final recourse, the Defense submitted a claim under Spanish Penal Law No. 89, which states that foreigners can be deported to their country of origin after having spent a year in prison. The claim was accepted by the court, resulting in the expulsion of Mónica and Francisco back to Chile where they will be completely released from custody, pending any possible infractions with the Chilean justice system. Since they have none, they are able to walk free upon arrival passing through Chilean customs. Neither Mónica or Francisco ever recognized their involvement in the bombing, and in fact alleged the charges were part of broader state political persecution as Anarchists.

Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar first came to Spain after their charges in the Chilean Anarchist Bombs Case were withdrawn by the Santiago court in 2012. The case was heavily publicized by the mass media throughout Chile when it first came to light in 2010, publicly broadcasting the arrest of the 12 accused who were depicted as terrorists. But the case quickly fell apart after insufficient and flimsy evidence was presented by State Prosecution in courts, resulting in the absolution of the Anarchists, as well as a governmental crisis of legitimacy. The Santiago Court ordered the State Prosecution to award $460 million Chilean pesos (approximately $700,000 USD) to the former Anarchist accused for losses and damages of having gone through the legal system, which was later upheld by the Chilean Supreme Court. Francisco Solar was awarded $100 million pesos, while Mónica Caballero was awarded $80 million pesos, which they then used to start a new life together as a couple in Spain.

Today, Mónica and Francisco will be able to walk free on the streets of Santiago and begin a new life together with their friends, family and comrades. We salute them in their brave dignified efforts throughout all these years of repression and persecution in resisting the confines of State prisons around the world.

In love and rage,

Viva la Anarquia!

Santiago, Chile: Ataque incendiario a caja de electricidad en autopista del Proyecto IIRSA.

(Recibido 22/2/17)

En américa del sur y en Chile, el IIRSA avanza, y como individuxs en guerra con la civilización y el poder no nos quedamos de brazos cruzados.

En la ciudad de Santiago, uno de sus puntos de intervención es la mega-estructura de cemento “Acceso Sur” que da inicio a la autopista que facilita el transporte de mercancías desde el centro hacia el sur del país. Esta construcción intervino con violencia el paisaje cotidiano de las poblaciones que existen alrededor.

En la semana de agitación contra el IIRSA iluminamos la noche con fuego insurrecto incendiando una caja de electricidad de esa asquerosa autopista, demostrando que el poder y sus mega proyectos siguen siendo vulnerables.

Materializamos el odio que bajo el cemento de las calles tras los muros de las prisiones continua en resistencia y ofensiva contra el poder. Por eso saludamos a lxs compañerxs Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores, Enrique Guzmán, a lxs compañerxs del “Caso PDI”, a las compañeras Tato y Sol, a lxs compañerxs del “Caso Security”, a Mónica, Francisco, al compañero Joaquín García y a todxs lxs compañerxs en las cárceles de Grecia, España, Italia y el mundo.

Ni capitalismo verde ni Estados ecológicos.
A multiplicar los actos de autonomía y ataque directo contra el poder y sus proyectos que destruyen la Tierra y buscan dominar nuestras vidas.

Saboteadorxs de lo cotidiano por la anarquía.

Santiago, Chile: Incendiary attack against an electricity box on the IIRSA Project freeway

Received  22/02/17

In South America and Chile, the IIRSA (Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America) is advancing, and as individuals at war with civilization and power we do not sit idly by.

In the city of Santiago, one of its points of intervention is the cement mega-structure “Acceso Sur” (Access South), which starts the freeway that facilitates the transportation of goods from the center to the south of the country. This construction violently intervenes in the everyday landscape of the surrounding populations.

In the week of agitation against the IIRSA we illuminated the night with insurgent fire by burning an electricity box on that disgusting highway, demonstrating that power and its mega-projects remain vulnerable.

We materialize the hatred that continues under the cement of the streets and behind the walls of prisons in resistance and offensive against state power. This is why we greet Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores, Enrique Guzmán, the compañerxs of the “PDI Case”, the comrades Tato and Sol, the compañerxs of the “Security Case”, Mónica, Francisco, compañero Joaquín García and all the compañerxs in the jails of Greece, Spain, Italy, and the world.

Neither green capitalism nor ecological states.
To multiply the acts of autonomy and direct attack against the power and its projects that destroy the Earth and seek to dominate our lives.

Santiago, Chile: Incendiary attack against a Transantiago bus by Antagonistic Nuclei of the New Urban Guerrilla

As we warned…We have returned

By means of this text we claim responsibility for the total destruction of the route 230 Transantiago bus in the commune of Puente Alto today (26.12.16) by means of a homemade incendiary device.

We already made a previous attempt on August 18 on the route 110 bus in the commune of Maipú, with uncertain results. This time we have learned from our mistakes and modified some operational details to ensure that our small sabotage was completely successful.

And so we have deprived a small link in the mercantile flow that transports the oppressed to slow down the sinister machinery of social production that makes the surplus wealth generated by entrepreneurs, managers and bosses via the temporary and compulsory exploitation of the exploited to feed their wealth through wage labor and the frenetic consumption that is present at this time.

We make our position clear that our targets have never been the poor or the marginalized either in the countryside or the city. Proof of this is that we chose a route that was practically empty, but which was ready to reach its destination quickly to reincorporate itself back into the flow of exploitation, consumption and misery with which this means of public transportation collaborates. Additionally, our device was designed so that even if there were still passengers inside it would generate enough noise to warn them of our inevitable and intentional arson. Along with these measures we also designed our plan to be carried out only in the event that there was indeed nobody near the initial point of deflagration, if this situation had not been the case we simply would not have proceeded.

And so we do not hesitate to say that we hit the pockets of those who do not know the precariousness of an economically difficult life, blocking the flow that represents Capital through this small but effective sabotage and remembering that in this month not everything is about money and consumerism and that there are still many reasons to fight.

We dedicate this action to the compañerxs Juan Flores Riquelme, Nataly Casanova Muñoz and Enrique Guzmán Amadeo, imprisoned for various placements of explosive devices and risking very high sentences. To sabotage the flow of goods from the southern zone is to a certain extent a nod of solidarity with the compañerxs, who lived in the vicinity of the commune in which we operate.

With this action we again want to send greetings to the indomitable comrades Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda and Juan Aliste Vega who are all imprisoned in the High Security Prison for the Security Case. We also send a fraternal embrace to Muñoz Delgado, Kevin Garrido and Joaquín Garcia, captives of the social war for feeding the revolutionary offensive in Chile.

We also send greetings to Natalia Collado (Tato) who is imprisoned for carrying out a sabotage similar to ours almost 2 years ago. Compañera, your convictions feed our dreams of insurrection!

We also want to take advantage of this small platform to remember that in a not so distant past there were compañerxs who went much further and did not limit themselves to sabotaging the mercantile flow but recovered it, expropriating some of the money used by bosses and heads of State / Capital to rob us of our lives. So in an exercise of combative memory we bring to the present Sergio Valdés, Ignacio Escobar Diaz and Enrique Torres, lautarinxs compañerxs who died while providing covering fire for the retreat of their squadron after an assault on a Santander bank on December 18, 1991 in the city of Coquimbo.

But it is not only the compañeros of politico-military apparatuses that generated these kinds of practices, so in affinity with our ideas we do not forget the anarchist Claudio Lavazza who is serving a harsh sentence after assaulting one of these centers of wealth accumulation, paradoxically, also on December 18 but in the year 1996.

Also, we cannot miss this opportunity to remember a brother of ours who was an active member of this group and who fell dead on the morning of the 11th of this month, 3 years ago under fire during an attempt to expropriate a bank in the commune of Pudahuel. Surely Sebastian Oversluij would have accompanied us in this new day of conspiracy had he not been murdered by a hit man of Capital. Some of these insurrectional flames were in your honor, making this small gesture a greeting of freedom to your memory.

With Persistence, Memory, Solidarity and Subversion we continue the war against Power!
Both yesterday and today, there are still reasons to fight!
To spread anti-boss hatred!
As long as there is memory there will be Rebellion!
¡Sebastián Oversluij Presente!

Santiago, Chile: Barricades of fire – Sebastián Oversluij Seguel presente!

c1 c2 c4 c5 c6

We re-appropriate time, meaning that we recover it, we steal it. Only via this way are we able to be in communion with other individuals to raise an operational coordination with the aim of questioning and striking the established order. Convinced of this we appeared with barricades on several streets and avenues of Santiago taking action against the existing order that the powerful intend to dominate us with.

This propaganda action that we carried out in the streets of the city was loaded with vengeful memory since 6 years of absolute impunity have already taken place since the state of Chile massacred 81 prisoners. Indeed it was at dawn on December 8, 2010 in the north and south wings of the 4th floor, Tower 5 of San Miguel prison where the state machinery revealed its true face, this time without concealing or hiding the torture and the death that tragically embodied the incinerated bodies of 81 people.

As anti-authoritarians/anarchists we do not make double readings of these facts for anything accidental, our position is clear and from the streets we made an explicit call for open conflict against all those who are part of the prison structure regardless of the degree of responsibility that they have.

The best act of memory is to have their deaths always present and to plan our revenge against the state, its apparatuses and it official accomplices – in the case the sinister institution of the Gendarmerie.

Strengthening the illegalist memory we remember the compañero Sebastian Oversluij who fell in combat during an expropriation of a state bank in Pudahuel. 3 years after his death we reaffirm and claim his action as one of the many practices that revolutionaries, anti-authoritarians and anarchists have used throughout history to confront dominion.

Angry in our memory, always present.

To unleash the conflict against all forms of exploitation and authority!
To multiply the informal networks of attack!

The night of October 23, commune of Macul, Santiago. The eve of the electoral farce.

We claim the sabotage of Banco Estado (State Bank).

There are plenty of motives for arson and for realizing the anarchic offensive against their temples of money.

With this action we extend our commitment to the revolt. Maximum willingness for the intensification of the conflict against State Capital, Power and all authority.

We send greetings to all the imprisoned comrades facing judicial trials and processes in the coming weeks.

Tuesday October 4, 2016.

Encapuchados erected barricades outside the UMCE (ex-educational) in solidarity with prisoners of war and clashed with the henchmen of the police Special Forces.

A banner was hung with the slogan: “Nothing is over, everything continues” and shouts thundered of “For the continuity of the fight against prisons, solidarity must be constant and active!”

Leaflets were left in support of Tamara Sol Farías Vegara, Andrés Aravena (Chico)*, Jean Gutiérrez (Legua) and the “PDI Case” comrades.

The day ended without any detainees.

*Comrade Andres Aravena (Chico) was released from Santiago prison 1 after a hearing on 09.08.16 where he was transferred from preventitive detention to night house arrest.

Santiago, Chile: Noise bomb attack against the police church by Anarchic Group of Unpatriotic Heretics FAI-FRI

34

Mobilizing our anti-authoritarian strength in concrete actions of hostility towards the power, we attacked the Evangelical Church of the Carabineros of Chile (located in the center of Santiago) with a noise bomb. We chose the night of September 19 for our action, the day in Chile when the State and the citizen masses celebrate the ‘Fiestas Patrias’ and render honor to the Armed Forces and the police.

Our action is a sign of repudiation against the festive atmosphere of nationalism and alienation promoted by the State and voluntarily accepted by the social majority functional to power.

We send our solidarity to comrade Juan Flores and the comrade Nataly Casanova, two years since their arrest accused of installing explosive devices. We also greet the comrades Juan Aliste, Marcel Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla and Natalia Collado. May our solidarity be transformed into fire and explosions for the comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar, the imprisoned comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Angeliki Spyropoulou in Greece, the comrades Nicola Gai, Alfredo Cospito and the comrades recently arrested in Italy for the attacks of the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI).

Against the Church, the nation, repression and all forms of control over our lives.
Our deafening noise is a cry for freedom.

Anarchic Group of Unpatriotic Heretics (FAI/FRI)

Movilizando nuestra fuerza anti-autoritaria en acciones concretas de hostilidad hacia el poder, atacamos con una bomba de ruido la Iglesia Evangelica de Carabineros de Chile (ubicada en el centro de Santiago). Elegimos para nuestra accion la noche del 19 de septiembre, dia en que en Chile el Estado y la masa ciudadana festejan las “Fiestas Patrias” y rinden honores a las Fuerzas Armadas y de Orden.

Nuestro acto es una muestra de repudio ante clima festivo de nacionalismo y enajenacion promovido por el Estado y voluntariamente aceptado por la mayora social funcional al poder

Enviamos nuestra solidaridad al companero Juan Flores y a la companera Nataly Casanova a dos anos de su arresto acusadxs de instalar artefactos explosivos. Tambien saludamos a lxs companerxs Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla y Natalia Collao.
Que la solidaridad se transforme en incendios y explosiones por lxs companerxs Monica Caballero y Francisco Solar, lxs companerxs presxs de la Cospiracion de Celulas del Fuego y la companera Aggeliky Spyropoulou en Grecia, lxs companerxs Nicola Gai, Alfredo Cospito y lxs companerxs detenidxs recientemente en Italia por ataques de la Federacion Anarquista Informal (FAI).
