During the early morning of May 26, 2022, around 1:00 a.m., two hooded men ride a bicycle to the building where the miserable torturers “in retirement” remain. The Circle of Gendarmerie Officials in Retirement (CIRGENCHI), located in José Toribio Medina # 72, in the heart of downtown Santiago.
The unknown persons left a device to leave quickly without being detected or attracting attention. Soon after, a loud explosion occurs, alerting the neighbors, without causing any damage or injuries.
Police personnel quickly arrived and the case was taken to the South Prosecutor’s Office, which delegated its proceedings to personnel from GOPE, LABOCAR and OS9. At first it was reported that a fire extinguisher with its normal chemical powder charge was found in the place, but with the passing of time this information will be denied by the protagonists.
The attack is claimed by the “Célula Insurreccional 2 de Noviembre” through e-mails to different counter-information pages, specifying the explosive nature of the device, as well as directly linking the action to the commemoration of the death of Mauricio Morales in 2009 and the urgent campaign for the release of Marcelo Villarroel, imprisoned by the convictions of the Military Prosecutor’s Office.
It is also noted that this attack was carried out in coordination with the arson attack on the medialuna of the commune of Pedro Aguirre Cerda, by the Grupo de Respuesta Animal (Animal Response Group).
The attack of May 2022 is not the first against this enclosure, already at the end of April 2016 the Autonomous Fraction “Sole y Baleno” carried out an arson attack against the same Circle of Gendarmerie Officials in Retiro, generating considerable damages.
News from the bourgeois press:
Claiming of explosive attack against the Gendarmerie Officers Circle in Retiro
“We arrive at our stop. We stop. The air is silent. A moment more, an instant. A wall, the floor, my hands, the bicycle, my partner, the stony street, the polluted city, the prison order, the night, the silence… Everything explodes”.
HOW THE PRISON BASTARDS TREMBLE!
In the framework of a new anniversary of the death of comrade Mauricio Morales Responding to the call of agitation for the coming out to the street of comrade Marcelo Villarroel
Through this email we claim responsibility for the bomb attack perpetrated in the early morning of Thursday, May 26, 2022 against the Circle of Officials of the Retired Gendarmerie (CIRGENCHI) located in José Toribio Medina #72, Brasil neighborhood, in the heart of downtown Santiago.
Our gift for this filthy enclosure was made with a powerful explosive device confined inside a fire extinguisher filled with black powder, which we activated with a fuse, thus producing the roar that affirms once again that we are here, that we outwit their surveillance and control systems and their mangy policemen, that once again and categorically we can affirm that the attack is possible – against the eternal ones it is not possible – we unleash our conspiratorial plans to continue living the war in Santiago.
conspiratorial plans to continue living the war against this decadent world in the here and now.
Going out against the persecuting bastards on duty, the undersecretary Jaime Gajardo together with the jailers on the day when a new monkey, Sebastián Urra, also took over the leadership. We make it clear to you -we are not intimidated- our convictions that translate into concrete actions go beyond what you can understand and imagine. The only thing left for you -and for all personnel and institutions of power- is to assume the consequences for remaining in power – is to assume the consequences for remaining and validating a shitty system where impunity reigns.
To say that we are taking this action because we believe that attack is the only way that will crack the Power, that leaves it vulnerable and gives us spaces to recover our lives that they want to gobble up day by day. We will not be accomplices of silence, even less passive when death, mutilation, prison or clandestinity stalk those of us who decide to rebel. We will let our eternal rage flow in the urban combat that strengthens and multiplies with new tools and we will continue executing attacks under the projection that we are part of and that we wish to continue contributing to the new anarchist urban guerrilla in this territory.
In this cold black May, 13 years after the death of comrade Mauricio Morales Duarte, we dedicate this genuine action of war to his memory that remains alive. His words and actions continue to infect the restless minds and hands that do not allow themselves to be overwhelmed by anything or anyone.
“(…) with a loving heart that bares itself before the comrade, with one hand tender and the other armed”. We salute and send our strength to our comrades subversive and anarchist prisoners Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Joaquín García, Juan Aliste, Juan Flores and to those recently arrested in the last weeks. Special mention should be made of comrade Marcelo Villarroel who continues to face the hatred of the Power that intends to keep him condemned to decades in prison for a set of urban guerrilla actions in times of dictatorship and democracy and that today remain in force through military justice. The urgent call is to multiply the actions of all kinds for the immediate release of our comrade and to maintain our solidarity with all our brothers and sisters who face political imprisonment with dignity.
We salute and send our forces to each cell of action that has attacked in this territory in the last time, know comrades that your acts call us to continue spreading chaos and anarchy.
Finally, the early morning that we carried out our attack, -in a coordinated way- the Grupo de Respuesta Animal perpetrated a ferocious arson attack on the medialuna of the Club de Huasos y Rodeo Gil Letelier, located in Calle Carlos Valdovinos #2951, commune of Pedro Aguirre Cerda, Santiago.
NEITHER JAIL NOR DEATH ITSELF WILL STOP ANARCHIST POLITICAL VIOLENCE!
LET THE BOMBS, FIRE AND SHOTS BE MULTIPLIED AGAINST THE ENEMY!
NOTHING IS OVER, EVERYTHING CONTINUES!
Célula Insurreccional 2 de Noviembre
