Informal Coordination-Iconoclastic Groups claimed responsibility for shooting a police officer and torching a Transantiago bus on April 20th in Santiago, Chile. The following is their statement:
Fire and lead to the police!
¡Erick e Iván Presentes!
We disregard the leaflet shown by the media (Radio BioBio); it is not the one that was written by us. That is why we are claiming the action carried out in memory of Erick and Iván, on April 20th, which consisted of us filling the authority with lead* and torching a Transantiago bus.
Continue replicating and / or organizing in an authoritative manner. The fact that a central idea unites us and not a feeling, not finding ourselves in the praxis of war against the State. This is precisely what we seek to destroy.
No means of repression can end the virus of insurrection, since the praxis of dreaded anarchic ideas spread like flames that devour their city. We throw ourselves into the void and contemplate with deep enjoyment the traces of our actions, dismantling the normality of citizenship, evading the State and police institutions. Sabotage is where our negations meet. There is nothing else that unites us.
To organize and attack the state it is necessary to destroy the old forms of organization.
The new urban guerrilla spreads diffusely like a plague!
We will take revenge for each prisoner and every death!
KEVIN GARRIDO PRESENTE!

PRISONERS OF THE SOCIAL WAR TO THE STREET!
