Early in the morning of Saturday, August 14, in Santiago, agents of the Chilean state raided the self-organized social center Jonny Cariqueo and the squatted social center and library Sacco and Vanzetti, shutting down the latter. Several homes were also raided, and 14 comrades taken into custody, with charges of illicit association and placing bombs.
The raid is the work of the new State’s Attorney Alejandro Peña, who claims to be going after a terrorist anarchist organization, which he has largely invented with the complicity of various judges. Under his watch, international solidarity has become “terrorist financing” and anarchist libraries have become safe houses or centers of power.
For some time now, the Chilean state has presented the anarchists as public enemy number one. These arrests and all the fear-mongering carried out by the media, as always complicit with Capital, is meant to distract people from the plight of the 33 miners and their families, and from the Mapuche prisoners on hunger strike in struggle for their lands and freedom.
The State/Capital wants to cover up its inability to catch anyone for the over 100 bombs that have been placed throughout Santiago against targets of the powerful, as part of the ongoing social war in Chile.
The day before, on August 13, agents of the State disarmed a bomb set to go off at an elite restaurant in Santiago. The communique claiming responsibility for the bomb stated that members of the institutions of the powerful should no longer feel safe, as they carry out massive violence and repression against all those who struggle.
The social center Jonny Cariqueo calls for solidarity and says it will struggle to remain open and mobilize and agitate in the struggle against State and Capital, and in particular against the Anti-Terror Law.

did anyone speak of a
“…A handful of capitalists
have organized a criminal gang
and have kidnapped the proletarians,
demanding for ransom
their labor force,
merchandising their human activity,
their time (which is turned into money),
their own being itself…”

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
