Santiago: Third March in Solidarity with the Hunger Strikers( CHILI)

“Freedom to All Political Prisoners, End to the Anti-Terrorist Law”
Today (March 9th) was the 3rd march in solidarity with our imprisoned compañerxs and their ongoing (17 days) hunger strike. The march was under more repressive circumstances than the first two marches, where before there was undercover cops filming and videotaping the demonstration, while at the second one there was a great display of carabineros (Chilean police) and special forces, today the police were looking to exemplify all the power that lies in their uniforms.
The new displays of violence arrived in the street via the guardians of order. When the police are motivated by something as absurd as a salary: things turn out as they should: absurdly. They intended to fence in the permiter of the Plaza de Armas, escorted by police cars. They wanted to stop the march from passing through a heavily trafficked area (both pedestrian and vehicle), as previous marches had taken that route before. Their intention was to stop the spread of the news of our compañerxs to the center. Nevertheless, we were very please to see that each time, more and more diverse groups of people, mobilize for the freedom of the imprisoned comrades from the 14th of August.
At the end of the march, the police began to hunt down those participating in the march. There were eight arrests (six men, two women), and although six were to be released pending a decision to do with the other two (which according to police one had a knife and the other marijuana paraphernalia) but at the end of the day decided to hold them based on participating in a demonstration in solidarity with the accused in the “Bombs Case”, sending them all to “detention control” tomorrow.
Most detainees are comrades who were supporting the movement with the Tinku (radical dance team) who not only were arrested, assaulted, and circled in by special forces but all their movements were recorded by undercover agents, police, and those special forces with the clear aim of intimidating them. Even as they danced, they were threatened by police, who warned them they would be detained. We call for solidarity with them tomorrow during their hearing at the justice center at 11:00 hrs.

The threat of their jails does not silence us, but instead makes our screams stronger.

“This reality can not contain our dreams…to destroy.”

“Do not believe what they tell you” “The Bombs Case is a montage” “Freedom for the prisoners of August 14th!!!”

“For the end of the montage, Bombs Case.” “Prisoners in Hunger Strike”

“Solidarity is a weapon, load it and shoot it”

“Prisoners to the Street!”

“Fire to All the Prisons!”

“With fire and scandal, to all the jails until the last wall, judge, and cop, and the last of all their friends are destroyed…”
“Prisoners in Hunger Strike…to the Street NOW!!!”

“Freedom for Monika Caballero” “Imprisoned by the State on August 14th” “Freedom for all Political Prisoners of the 14th of August” “To the street-to the street-to the street”

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.
