April 12, 2011 Anarchist News
This April 14th to the 21st has been chosen as a week of agitation and
propaganda for the immediate freedom of the 14 Chilean anarchists arrested
on August 14th 2010. The arrests were a culmination of raids under what is
being called the "Bombs Case". The arrestees are accused of placing or
being implicit in dozen of bombs set off in the greater Santiago area for
the past couple years. They are being charged under the dictatorship era
Anti-Terrorist Law. They are charged with "illicit association" as well.
Ten of the arrested comrades have been imprisoned since August 14th,
culminating now to almost 8 months of jail time, also 9 of the 10 have
been on hunger strike since February 21, 2011. The other comrade joined
the hunger strike March 23rd. They have lost around 20 pounds each, the
hunger strike is indefinite. The prosecutor is asking for sentences of 10
years, 15 years, to life imprisonment. The comrades have kept their heads
held high inside prison agitating with their bodies and small acts of
refusal, on the outside anarchists have continued the struggle and
expressed multitudes of solidarity, internationally anarchists have
responsed as well. This week will act as focal point for anarchist
solidarities and a reminder of our comrades known and unknown locked up in
the cages of democracy in Santiago. Those who forget the accused or the
imprisoned of the struggle, forget the struggle itself.
Immediate freedom for the 14 compañerxs!
Prisoners to the streets!
THE PASSION FOR FREEDOM KNOWS NO BORDERS!!!
