On the night of May 3, 2021, after our comrades have endured more than 42 days on hunger strike: Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Joaquín García, Pablo Bahamondez, Juan Flores, and Marcelo Villarroel.
A few minutes before the curfew begins, we head to the neighborhoods where there’s no banging of pots and pans to demand crumbs from this murderous government. Neighborhoods that are inhabited by those who, despite the context of the pandemic, have increased their wealth disproportionately, while in other corners of the territory dominated by the state of Chile, hunger and misery are the daily scenario of many.
We attack this symbol of money and capital, a bank branch located in Apoquindo, corner of Manquehue, Las Condes commune. As a gesture of solidarity with the comrades on hunger strike since March 22, for the repeal of the amendments to DL 321. Those who use their bodies as the only trench, in a gesture that defies the prison structure and its judicial apparatus.
We make an urgent call to show solidarity with our comrades behind bars, that not a single prisoner is this alone, that solidarity is not just a written word. With ingenuity we can circumvent their control mechanisms and prolong the offensive. May our dreams be their worst nightmares, may the neighborhoods of the rich tremble, and may the permanent revolt blow up in their faces.
Neither pacts nor crumbs, intransigent war against prison society and the capital state.
Freedom to Subversive Prisoners and Anarchists on hunger strike.
Fire and explosions to the state and its prisons.
Marcelo Villarroel on the street now!
This attack is also a gesture to the living memory of fellow Anarchist Mauricio Morales.
May the explosions echo in memory of the punky Mauri, may the month of May be dyed black …
* It is worth mentioning that we took all possible measures and safeguards, so that the explosion did not harm even a single passerby: We left a notice that read “Closed, sorry for the inconvenience”, and the timer was set to go off when the curfew was already is in force *
P.S. Fraternal hugs to the comrades who continue to conspire day by day, each offensive gesture is a complicit smile …
