Streaming Version of The Chicago Conspiracy
We have been searching for a way to stream The Chicago Conspiracy online, since our release of the DVD. We ran into a number of technical limitations, and the folks at CrimethInc.com kindly offered to release the streaming version for us.
The streaming version is now available for free.
There will be more updates soon about an upcoming narrative short film.
We have added The Chicago Conspiracy poster to the online store. The poster is based on a hand drawing by an artist, and it was screen printed with three colors on high quality paper. We are selling the poster for $10.
The DVD release in Santiago, Chile will be Wednesday, November 3 and 10. The Chicago Conspiracy will also be shown.
Vidaurre 1629, between Av. 18 and the highway, two blocks from Alameda
Metro los Heroes
November 3 and 10
Suggested donation: 500 pesos to finance the production of Sinapsis number 9.
It is difficult for us to believe that a year has passed since the premier of The Chicago Conspiracy in Santiago, Chile. The moment in the movie theatre when we last saw each other is still fresh in our memory. The documentary premier demonstrated to us that film cannot materialize our desires, but it can articulate our rebellious thoughts. We understand that the current society protects the interests of an elite, and this will only end with the destruction of that society.
We have seen how the dictatorship of capital has only changed its public image with the arrival of the democratic state in Chile. The democratic state does not present significant changes from the dictatorship in the political and economic structure of the Concertación government or the new government of Sebastián Piñera. The state continues with the same policies of social control against rebellion that were put into place during the Pinochet era. It does not surprise us that capital has taken advantage of natural disasters—in the case of the earthquake this year—to protect capitalist interests without accounting for people’s needs. The Chilean state continues to raid Mapuche communities in conflict, and once again the state seeks to intimidate every rebellious voice in the cities. The legal system is not designed to find guilt, and it never has been. It exists to maintain political and economic power. We know that every collective, individual, and community that enters into conflict with the state can expect brutal repression. This is why we use terms like social war, because the situation is clearly a war with numerous fronts. There is no neutral position in the war. The mainstream press is an active agent, and its entire existence depends on maintaining the current system.
One year from the premier of The Chicago Conspiracy, we are very proud to present the first edition DVD. We hope that it will be a helpful reflection and discussion of the social war lived daily. History is created by our own actions. As combatants, we use the medium of film to articulate our desires. We do not work as militant filmmakers; we are militants who put film to use.
The DVD will be on sale at a higher price outside of Chile to finance the costs of production and future projects. It will be on sale in Chile at the cost of production. Also in the coming weeks, we will upload a free copy to be viewed online.
Freedom for all prisoners in the social war!
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.
