La Paz, Bolivia: Responsibility Claim for Incendiary Device at the Chilean Consulate
The Calacoto neighborhood in the South Zone of the city of La Paz, where the rich take refuge behind their walls and their private security guards, saw their passivity interrupted by the placement of an incendiary device composed of 10 liters of gasoline, black powder and a timer, which unfortunately did not meet its objective.
The detonation system was powered by a 9v battery which, when the circuit was closed, had to heat a resistor that, in contact with the powder, would cause the fuel to ignite. We do not know the reason why the explosion did not take place, since the information released in the press about the characteristics of the device is falsified. The system had already been put to the test, but we think that what could have failed was the battery, or, if not, the device was deactivated before its detonation.
The power and its repressive apparatus have attacked anti-authoritarian spaces and compas that irreducibly resist confinement in different territories. This action is a wink of complicity, solidarity and revenge with all those comrades kidnapped in the dungeons of the States.
Let it be clear that the viciousness with which the Chilean State has used prison to punish those who declare themselves at war will not go unanswered.
In the face of the repressive onslaught, not a step back!
In the continuity of the offensive is where the compas are present in the streets. Those of us who are outside assume with joy the task of reminding the privileged that none of their buildings and representatives are free from the attack of organized rage.
Let them know here and throughout the region that no constituent or reform process of the capitalist state is going to stop anarchic action. It will continue to emerge even in the apparently most sterile territories.
In concrete action, solidarity becomes more than a slogan.
We salute the comrade Boris (1)
International solidarity with prisoners at war! Until the last stone falls on prison society!

From the press: “The Fire Department found this Monday a device described as a ‘fake explosive device’ at the front of the Consulate of Chile in the southern area of La Paz. (…) The case was investigated by the FELCC [Special Force to Fight Crime] in the southern zone, but security personnel from the Consulate and the Chilean Police Attaché have also been contacted.”
