transantiagofranklin02transantiagofranklin01

Recibido el 19.01.18:

Siempre es momento para el ataque, pero no somos indiferentes ante el panorama actual… mientras la sociedad se regocija seducida por la visita papal y expía sus culpas en la ansiedad de la espera, nosotrxs reivindicamos la aventura de la acción directa.

Ya llegada la noche del 10 de enero, con los deseos autónomos posicionados, dejamos un artefacto incendiario en el recorrido I 01 del Transantiago, activándose este en las proximidades de Franklin con San Francisco. En el momento en que se expande el fuego, el borrego chofer acude a la sofocación con un extintor, quemándose solo la parte trasera de este transporte símbolo de las lógicas mercantiles, delegador de tiempos y pulsos, adecuando el cotidiano a un control social más acotado, dando con comodidades típicas de una cultura alienante. Sin embargo, nuestro actuar quebranta estos tiempos, estas comodidades eligiendo con horizontalidad y sin jefaturas donde y cuando hacer y deshacer las negras intensiones de conflictividad permanente contra todo lo que se posiciona como autoridad.

Entonces, dando este golpe en tal hora y lugar entendemos que nuestras decisiones y palabras son un vínculo con lo que creemos óptimo al momento de atacar. Pues hay ritmos que se gestan con seguridad, y más aún, con una voluntad que determina como filo la herida de nuestros enemigos.

Los materiales, horarios y objetivos los fijamos solo nosotrxs y avanzan acorde con el sentido de guerra… cuando pretendamos que el daño-destrucción sean distintos, así lo haremos y toda la planificación apuntará en ese sentido.

Nadie nos dirigirá, nunca. Vamos por el ataque descentralizado, autónomo, libremente asociado, anárquico y violento. Saludando a nuestrxs compañerxs en prisión. Juan Flores condenado recientemente por ataque explosivo bajo la Ley Antiterrorista y Tamara Sol con su intento de fuga que demuestra que la osadía es el mejor alimento.

Con todo un mundo por destruir, ¡a multiplicar el accionar autónomo ya!
A 10 años de su caída en guerra…

Grupo Autónomo Weichafe Matías Katrileo.

France: Freedom for Georges Louis!

GeorgesLouis

Recived on 19.01.18:

Our comrade Georges Louis, union representative at the CGT (General Workers Confederation) and a militant of the Secours Rouge Arabe (Arabian Red Help), was arrested again. At 4.30 AM, 10 armed and masked policemen and 4 civilian policemen took our comrade after breaking his door and devastating his appartment. Georges is now held and questioned in Saint-Denis, we don’t know for what reasons he was arrested. In the context of the State of Emergency, Georges was already two times forbidden to demonstrate: on February 23 at the occasion of a students demonstration for Theo (raped with a baton by a police officer), and on May 7 for the second round of presidential elections. Georges was then arrested on October 10 in the context of the wide repression against the opposition movement against “Labor Law XXL”. Following this arrest, he was charged and convicted in November to 5 months in prison suspended for “violence against public authority representatives” and “participation in a group formed to prepare violence against people or destruction of goods”.

In his statement at the Court, Georges was very clear regarding his commitment and his militant practices. His co-workers know him as a devoted and combative union representative and we know him as an active militant of the international solidarity movement. He was always present in the mobilisations for revolutionary prisoners, wether they were communists, anarchists, antifascists or anti-imperialists. As our comrade is once again confronted with repression, as his relatives and friends are prevented to know the reasons of his arrest, we express our warmest and whole solidarity with Georges Louis.

Santiago, Chile: Incendiary Attack Against a Transantiago Bus by Weichafe Matías Catrileo Autonomous Group

transantiagofranklin02transantiagofranklin01

Received and translated by Insurrection News on 19.01.18:

It is always time for the attack, but we are not indifferent to the current scenario…while society rejoices seduced by the Papal visit and atones for their sins in the anxiety of waiting, we claim the adventure of direct action.

Arriving on the night of January 10, with autonomous desires in place, we left an incendiary device on a Route 01 Transantiago bus, activating it in the vicinity of Franklin and San Francisco streets. At the moment that the fire began to spread, the sheep driver suffocated it with a fire extinguisher, burning only the rear of this transport symbol of the commercial logic, delegator of times and pulses, adapting the daily to a more narrow social control, providing the comforts that are typical of an alienating culture. However, our actions violate these times, these comforts by choosing with horizontality and without leaders where and when to do and undo the black intentions of permanent conflict against everything that is positioned as authority.

Then, by striking this blow in such a time and place we understand that our decisions and words are linked with what we believe optimal at the moment of attack. For there are rhythms that are developed safely, and even more so, with a will that determines the wound of our enemies as an edge.

The materials, schedules and objectives are set only by us and advance in line with the direction of war…When we pretend that the damage-destruction is different, we will do so and the planning will point in that direction.

Nobody is going to lead us, ever. We are going on the decentralized, autonomous, freely associated, anarchic and violent attack. Greetings to our imprisoned comrades. Juan Flores recently sentenced for an explosive attack under the anti-terrorism law and Tamara Sol with her attempted escape that demonstrates that courage is the best fuel.

With a whole world to destroy, to multiply the autonomous action now! 10 years since he fell in combat…

Chile: Artefacto Incendiario/Explosivo Contra Santuario Católico

incendiary_attack

Recibido en 18.01.18:

Reivindicamos la instalación de un artefacto incendiario/explosivo en una de las entradas del santuario del Movimiento Apostólico de Schoenstatt, ubicado en la comuna de La Florida, acción realizada la noche del 15 de enero, día de la llegada del Papa Francisco a Chile.

Con nuestra acción reafirmamos el combate contra la autoridad de la Iglesia Católica, institución cuyos organismos y representantes han ejercido históricamente la represión sobre los cuerpos, la imposición de roles y pautas de comportamiento, la manipulación de mentes y el monopolio espiritual que castra la libertad de lxs individuxs.

Cómplice de matanzas, persecusiones y genocidios en la historia mundial, la Iglesia Católica y su Papado son un pilar del dominio civilizado y del colonialismo en el territorio denominado “Latino América”.

El Movimiento Apostólico de Schoenstatt, fundado en Alemania en 1941 por el sacerdote José Kentenich, quien crea personalmente el movimiento en Chile en 1949, es sin lugar a dudas un importante enclave y referente del conservadurismo de la elite empresarial chilena.

A través de su red de escuelas, los Padres de Schoenstatt educan a más de seis mil niñas y niños en Chile por medio de una matriz valórica que reprime la libertad sexual, condena el aborto y defiende con fuerza la hegemonía de la institución-contrato del matrimonio heterosexual.

Ligados a este movimiento encontramos a una serie de despreciables personajes tales como el sacerdote Raúl Hasbún, defensor moral y político de la dictadura; el parlamentario José Antonio Kast, defensor de la dictadura y de torturadores, empresario y ex canditato presidencial de tendencia fascista; el empresario Agustín Edwards, dueño
del diario derechista “El Mercurio”, quien rezaba en el Santuario de Schoenstatt cuando un grupo guerrillero (FPMR) secuestró a su hijo a principios del 90; el empresario Felipe Matta Navarro, amigo personal del Presidente Piñera y ligado al negocio previsional de las AFP; y a los sacerdotes Rodrigo Gajardo, reconocido pedófilo y Francisco José Cox
Huneeus, acusado de abuso sexual de menores que hoy vive recluido en un monasterio.

Más allá de estos vínculos y de cualquier contexto o justificación, sabemos que siempre es un buen momento para atacar la tranquilidad de los templos de la moral y la autoridad.

Saludamos con esta acción la invitación lanzada por lxs compañerxs de la “Célula Santiago Maldonado”, quienes desde Italia han propuesto reforzar los ataques que atenten contra la paz de los representantes y cómplices del dominio.

Saludamos a cada célula e individualidad anárquica que continúa propagando el fuego insurgente de la libertad.

CONTRA EL PODER DE LA IGLESIA Y LA MORAL CRISTIANA
SOMOS BLASFEMXS ANTES QUE DEVOTXS!
¡FRANCISCO, NO ERES BIENVENIDO!
ACÁ ESTAMOS EN GUERRA CONTRA TODA AUTORIDAD.

La Florida, Chile: Incendiary / Explosive Attack Against a Catholic Sanctuary by Anticlerical Incendiary Cell ‘Hortensia Quinio’ FAI-FRI

incendiary_attack

Received and translated by Insurrection News on 18.01.18:

We claim responsibility for the incendiary / explosive device that was left at one of the entrances to the sanctuary of the Apostolistic Movement of Schoenstatt, located in the commune of La Florida, this action was taken on the night of January 15th, the day of Pope Francis’ arrival in Chile.

With our action we reaffirm the fight against the authority of the Catholic Church, an institution whose organisms and representatives have historically exercised repression over bodies, the imposition of roles, the manipulation of minds and the spiritual monopoly that castrates the liberty of individuals.

Accomplices of massacre, persecution and genocides throughout world history, the Catholic Church and its Papacy are a pillar of civilized dominance and of colonialism in the territory called ‘Latin America’.

The Apostolistic Movement of Schoenstatt, founded in Germany in 1941 by the priest Joseph Kentenich, who personally established the movement in Chile in 1949, is without doubt an important enclave and point of reference for the conservative Chilean business elite.

Through their network of schools, the Schoenstatt Fathers educate more than 6000 boys and girls in Chile with a value matrix that represses sexual freedom, condemns abortion and strongly defends the hegemony of the institution-contract of hetrosexual marriage.

Linked to this movement we find a series of despicable characters such as the priest Raúl Hasbún, moral defender and politician of the dictatorship; the parliamentarian José Antonio Kast, defender of the dictatorship and its torturers, businessman and ex-presidential candidate of fascist tendency; the entrepreneur Agustín Edwards, owner of the right-wing newspaper ‘El Mercurio’, who prayed in the Sanctuary of Schoenstatt when a guerrilla group (FPMR) kidnapped their son in the early 90s; the businessman Felipe Matta Navarro, personal friend of President Piñera and linked to the AFP pension fund business; as well as the priests Rodrigo Gajardo, notorious pedophile, and Francisco José Cox Huneeus, accused of sexually abusing children, who today lives in a monastery.

Beyond these links and any context of justification, we know that it is always a good time to attack the tranquility of the temples of morality and authority.

We welcome with this action the iniative launched by the comrades of the ‘Santiago Maldonado Cell’ in Italy who have proposed to reinforce attacks that attempt to shatter the peace of the representatives and accomplices of dominion.

We send greetings to every anarchic cell and individuality that continues spreading the insurgent fire of freedom.

AGAINST THE POWER OF THE CHURCH AND THE CHRISTIAN MORALITY
WE ARE BLASPHEMOUS RATHER THAN DEVOUT!
FRANCIS, YOU ARE NOT WELCOME!
WE ARE AT WAR AGAINST ALL AUTHORITY

Anticlerical Incendiary Cell ‘Hortensia Quinio’

Note from Insurrection News: Hortensia Quinio was an anarchist woman captured and tortured by the Chilean state during a repressive raid that hit Santiago during May, 1915. The Chilean state was looking for those who were responsible for dynamite attacks against religious convents in the capital.

Melipilla, Chile: Incendiary Attack Against a Catholic Church One Day After the Arrival of the Pope

 

At 01:00AM on January 14th, 2018 at the intersection of Fuenzalida and San Agustín streets, anonymous attackers detonated an incendiary device at the main entrance of the San Agustin de Melipilla Church. After a fire started at the door of the religious temple, bystanders alerted firefighters who prevented it from spreading.

The police quickly arrived at the scene but were unable to make any arrests.

The incendiary action was claimed by means of graffiti left at the entrance of the church that read:

“The only church that illuminates is the one that burns, it is the one that is on fire. No to the Pope”.

The San Agustin de Melipilla Church was being used for administrative work and had been closed to the general public while repairs took place after it was named as a National Monument, which did not prevent the fire from igniting its entrance.

The attack occurred despite threats by the State to strengthen security ahead of the Pope’s arrival in Chile. The incendiary action in Melipilla comes not long after the series of explosive and incendiary attacks against churches that took place during the dawn of January 12, 2018.

For his part, the mayor of the Metropolitan Region, Claudio Orrego stated, “Nobody is forced to agree with the Pope’s visit, but the use of violence has no place in a democracy”.

Sydney, Australia: Hunger Striking Detainees at Villawood on Lockdown & Denied Visits by Border Force

Villawood

18.01.18: Around 160 detainees at Villawood in Sydney are continuing their hunger strike – now in its fourth day. (Thursday, 18 Jan), over the draconian restrictions to visiting.

In an attempt to break the hunger strike, Border Force has locked down the striking compounds. All visits have been banned. Activities and appointments have been suspended. Border Force has also threatened to cut medications because ‘you are not eating.’

On Tuesday night (16 January), a Fijian diabetic detainee was rushed to hospital after collapsing inside the centre after 48 hours of hunger strike and lack of medication.

Border Force officers held meetings, today (Thursday, 18th) with the striking detainees inside the Villawood detention centre after admitting to representatives of the hunger strike two days ago that there had been no consultations before the announced changes.

But with the visiting restrictions still in place, the hunger strike continues.
