Barricades for the Liberation of Political Prisoners in Concepción, Chile

Today, Tuesday, July 14, different individuals from the Bio Bio region dominated by the Chilean state decided to interrupt the depressing capitalist daily life through simultaneous propaganda actions to break with the media fence and combatively show solidarity with everyone who It has determined to face the bourgeois state both in the city and in the country, in Chile or in the world.

We will fight against this business dictatorship and its military-police state, which tries to hide capitalist misery, condemning us to hunger or indebtedness to continue its business, as is the blatant theft of workers impoverished by the AFP system. And those who face daily exploitation and this neoliberal system with dignity are imprisoned, which is why we will end their centers for the extermination of the poor; prisons are not centers of rehabilitation, but dens of torture. Accordingly, we declare:

We demand the total liberation of the hunger strikers from Temuco and Angol, who are currently on 72 days of strike, and whose health conditions are serious and irreversible.

We support the Mapuche people as we feel united by our common struggle to free ourselves from the oppressive chains of neoliberalism and transnational corporations. Release the Machi Celestino Cordova with the 7 community members in the Temuco prison, the 8 strikers in the Angol prison and the 11 peñis who joined the hunger strike in the Lebu prison.

Immediate freedom for all the political prisoners of the October 18 revolt, who risked their freedom fighting against the injustices of this false democracy. The state insists on criminalizing, imprisoning, mutilating, and murdering the poor in pursuit of private property in all circumstances. But we will get revenge; the revolt continues and we will not forget.

We are in solidarity with all prisoners of the social war, with the 5 comrades from Bialystock, with the comps from Thessaloniki, with Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Mumia Abu Jamal, Marcelo Villaroel, Juan Aliste Vega, Juan Flores, Alejandro Astorga, Jorge Mateluna, Mauricio Norambuena , Alfredo Canales (*), Alfredo Olivares, Pablo Bahamondes, Hector Moraga, Henry Mendez, Joaquín García and Michael Escobar Troncoso.

We do not forget every comrade fallen in confrontation against power, who have known how to live after death; their bodies keep alive the flame of insurrection. Always in memory: Alejandro Treuquil, Patricio Gonzalez, Luis Marileo, Rodrigo Cisterna, Nelson Quichillao, Rodrigo Melinao, Matias Catrileo, Camilo Catrillanca, Macarena Valdés, Santiago Maldonado, Jhonny Cariqueo, Alex Lemun, Jaime Mendoza Collio, Mauricio Morales, Claudia López , José Huenante, Javier Recabarren, Jorge Saldivar and Sebastian Oversluij.
