On Thursday, October 21, at noon, in the high security module 1 of the company prison in Rancagua, there was a violent attack by the jailers -more than 50- with the aim of raiding all the prisoners -less than 20- who were in the yard at that time, It is in this context that, faced with the arrogance of the prison guards, the comrades who are currently in that module and a no lesser number of social prisoners, face up to the orders coming from the executioners and refuse them in order to safeguard their unshakable dignity. Perhaps it is necessary to explain here that the general way in which the prison guard operates is to seek to break the will of the individual, ordering prisoners to perform degrading actions such as putting their hands behind their backs, facing the wall or doing squats, all forms of submission constantly rejected by the subversive and anarchist comrades in prison, since they understand that performing this type of actions, in addition to the submission and indignity of the moment, is transformed into a vortex of submission in which the only logical culmination is the complete degradation of the individual; there is no manual that accounts for this analysis, it is the own conscience and the ability to learn from the mistakes of each of our comrades that has led them to choose this path. It is also logical that this type of response on the part of our comrades leaves a bitter taste in the jailers that often culminates in violence… This was one of those cases, after the comrades refused to carry out these actions, the jailers took a step forward and verbally and physically confronted them, which resulted in comrades Juan Flores and Joaquín García being punished for 24 hours in isolation cells, under the arbitrary accusation of “active resistance” and affecting their conduct (an important point to apply for rights such as parole or Sunday release), not without first being beaten and pepper sprayed, in addition to receiving Nazi and patriotic bravado in support of the ultra-right-wing Kast as the only president who would allow the killing of subversives in prison.
It is not part of their policy to play the role of victims, in this confrontation our comrades have not been beaten, they have resisted the humiliating orders of the prison guards, but that does not make them either victims or victimizers, they carry out their daily life in prison with pride, they know they are anarchists and subversives, they do not need the approval of anyone, because they live and practice it in their daily lives. The fact that they are the ones who have received the blows does not mean that this will always be their destiny, they have demonstrated it and will continue to do so; it is the dynamics of the conflict itself.
Two key points for the end of this text.
1-There are several reasons why this information has not been made public; first, we always need the consent of the affected comrades, we are a horizontal group of like-minded and with complete respect for individual freedom, we would never spread anything that could violate the privacy of any comrade, second, because they are precisely those who can give an account as reliably as possible of the situation and their experience, and third, is not part of our practice the dissemination of false news, extremely exalted or diminished, we do not make policy based on falsehood, with the world around us is enough for us.
2-We are aware of the support networks that assist our comrades and affinities, who are concerned about their welfare, far from any kind of assistance or Christian morality, we walk with them hand in hand, peer to peer, without protagonism and in full horizontality, this is part of their reality as subversive and anarchist prisoners, but there is also a giant group of social prisoners, who although, for the most part, are far from being affinities, they share the day to day and prison conditions; For them and for all prisoners it is necessary to constantly report on the prison reality, this is also an attack against the prison and the society that strives to sustain it.
In different prisons in the country and more specifically in the CP Rancagua the practice of torture is constant, jailers attack prisoners in groups without any capacity to respond, it is common to see prisoners “broken” by the executioners, sprayed to suffocation with pepper spray or even stabbed in punishment cells where no eye of that panopticon can see, not to mention that often prison guards generate the ideal conditions for situations of violence in which the prisoners are the most affected. In the prison of Rancagua there are already more than 9 prisoners dead in the last 3 months, they may say that they were not killed by prison guards, but it is clear that their deaths have their smell and color, overcrowding in prisons is critical and the conditions in which a large majority of prisoners live, worse… We are against prison and authority in each of its forms.
For the destruction of prison and the society that justifies it!!!!
