$hile – Prisoners' demonstration and Solidarity at Antofagasta

Wednesday, 22 December 2010


22 December 2010 -
Protest by inmates of Antofagasta prison inside the prison and riots outside the prison
As can be expected, the bourgeois press reported that this protest corresponded with a prison riot by inmates, when in fact it was a protest denouncing the conditions of the prisoners in this particular jail. (As tensions increased the protest augmented and within hours the prisoners announced a prison riot, with family members participating outside the jail.)
At about 12:00 noon, a group of prisoners broke with the established order and routine and scaled the wall and prison bars leading to the roof the prison, once on the roof the prisoners dropped banners and shouted slogans relating to the poor infrastructure of the prison and the treatment that prisoners receive at the hands of the prison pigs.
At this time visitors (mostly niños/as and adult women) were already waiting for the visiting hours to start. As the number of family members augmented they began to demand that they visit the inmates as to find out about the state of their jailed family members, that they were ok, and to find out what exactly was going on inside the prison. That's when the pigs started to get aggressive. Contrary to the what the press reported, until this moment none of the filthy pigs that represent the prison assassins had appeared. The press said that, the authorities were on the scene and that and everything was under control.
Thanks to the support from the outside and the call to revolt from within the prison, prisoners screamed nonstop slogans against the pigs, the press and Power.
At about 2 pm, the journalists arrived and began to ask questions that had nothing to do with the reality that was going on at the moment. The journalists were insulted and finally expelled from the area where the family members were protesting.
It was then that the people protesting outside the prison had had enough, they began to throw rocks, sticks, bricks and anything they could find at the pigs they found before them. The pigs in the water tanks and the submissive firefighters also received some presents from the crowd. On top of all that the prison walls were decorated with slogans in solidarity with the prisoners.
Solidarity in Antofagasta
An informal walk through the centre of Antofogasta on Monday, December 20 was held in solidarity with prisoners. With the help of a microphone we were able to make our voices heard, screaming chants against the prison system and infavour of prisoners' "rights" as basic human rights and commenting on the abusive and humiliating things that visitors are subjected to. We also screamed chants against the criminalization of anarchists and social warriors in general. We screamed that, as comrades, we are all sequestered, murdered and disappeared by the state, that the state hasn't ceased with its tortures and that political prisoners didn't disappear along with the dictatorship of "Pinoshit."
In the same protest we informed the public about the torture of Mapuche children and the montage the state/press is constructing to hide the reality of the continued raids, torture and disappearances the Mapuche have had to live through. We also spoke about the repressive situation in Rapa Nui where the Chilean government is reclaiming hectares of land and of the immigrants who in the majority are trafficking drugs, prostituting themselves and begging for money.........

We also spoke about the current situation of our 14 comrades/friends/brothers, 6 of whom are out on bail. Black flags of anarchy, the red and black flags of the anarcho-communists, and the green and black flags of the anarcho-ecologistas, flew high during the entire walk. During the speeches we remembered our fallen comrades and those assassinated by the Chilean state, comrades like; Claudia Lopez, Alex Lemun, Rodrigo Cisternas, Jonny Cariqueo and others. Also, we painfully remembered with rage our comrade and friend Mauricio Morales Duarte Punky Mauri who died in combat against authority.

The walk in and of itself lasted 3 hours, beforehand no one was arrested but after the act two people were detained and interrogated being set free a few hours later.

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.
