Ten years ago, on May 22, 2009, Mauricio Morales died while planting an explosive device at the Gendarmerie School in Santiago. Comrades in Chile have developed one of the most combative and inspirational movements in the world. Morales’ death, while tragic, has also helped – with the Chilean movement in general – inspire revolutionaries everywhere.

Anarchists have called for actions in May to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of his death.

To quote the call to action in some length.

“Days before the 10th anniversary of the death of anarchist revolutionary Mauricio Morales, comrades erected barricades and clashed with police forces outside the INBA lyceum in Santiago, Chile.

This May, we are aware of the existence of a double dimension , on the one hand, the pretext for anarchic combat and on the other hand the honest sadness for the loss of a beloved companion. We believe that in a complementary way we can multiply and reproduce the gestures of memory: Activities, publications, murals, actions, fires, combat in the streets. Everything works, because nothing is left aside.

This call is to take back what has never been left behind, giving life to that continuity of practice in the current scenario, contributing so that our deaths remain dangerous to the ears of the powerful, actions which are impossible to recuperate by the “progressive citizens” that separate us and rejecting any victimizing expression that seeks to impose a distorted image of our comrade.”
