During the night of Tuesday, July 5, around 23:00hrs an anonymous cyclist was riding through the wealthy streets of Las Condes to stop at the intersection of Ebro and Encomenderos.
In the place is located the corporate building of the construction company Belasco, the anonymous cyclist manages to enter a small package through the fence to give towards the interior of the building. After a few minutes, the device explodes, causing damage to the facade, mainly to the pillar, the entrance gate and glass of the building.
The unknown silhouette manages to continue its course without any problem or being detected. The typical police personnel for these events arrive at the place: GOPE, LABOCAR, OS-9 in charge of the already traditional Fiscalia Sur, self-styled expert for these cases.
From the progressive government, the Minister of the Interior Izkia Siches said: “the investigations are in progress, I am aware of it and we hope that they will be able to give a quick account. These are facts that we obviously reject as a government and we hope they will not be repeated in our country”.
For his part, the Undersecretary of the Interior, Manuel Monsalve, said: “We must not anticipate judgments, there are audiovisual images of the person who placed the explosive device, with respect to the company Besalco”.
A few hours later the “Grupo de Acción 6 de Julio-Nueva Subversión” claimed responsibility for the action by means of emails to different counter information media, pointing out as the main motivation for the attack the participation of the company Belasco in the concession of different prisons in Chile, as well as a gesture of remembrance of the memory of comrade Luisa Toledo, in solidarity with comrade Marcelo Villarroel and against the condemnations of the military justice system.

Explosive attack against Besalco S.A., Chile
“We have to change this peaceful, calm, simple way of life, without there being nothing, that is a routine every day. It has to be a shock for it to be life, a permanent shock. It has to be joy and pain, it has to be rage and hate.”
– Luisa Toledo.
“When there are many without honor, there will always be others who carry with them the honor of many.”
On Tuesday night, July 5, after 11 p.m., we attacked the Besalco company. We attacked the company Besalco S.A., on the corner of Ebro and Encomenderos, in the wealthy district of Las Condes.
In 2002, the first bids to implement the concession system for prisons in Chile began, a total of 8 prisons would be distributed among the bidding companies for their construction and administration. Besalco, together with Sociedad de Concesiones de Chile and Sodexo Chile, formed Group 1 and were in charge of the Alto Hospicio, La Serena and Rancagua prisons. Group 2 (Sodexo Chile) was awarded the concession of Concepción and Antofagasta prisons. Finally, Group 3 (Vinci Construction) manages the Santiago 1, Valdivia and Puerto Montt prisons.
The concession system works with the companies providing cleaning, food and infrastructure services inside the prisons, while the State, through the Gendarmerie, administers the custody of the prisoners. Overpopulation is not a problem for these wretches, since for each additional prisoner to the maximum that these same companies impose, the State must compensate them. Expenses are reduced to the minimum so that profits are greater, thus, the conditions inside the prisons are deficient.
These business groups not only participate in the prison business in Chile, but over the years they have woven a monopoly that expands throughout the world, managing prisons in different countries. The insurrectional action finds them and succeeds in attacking them, because if we despise the servile custodians of Gendarmería, we also despise those who find a business in overcrowding, torture and humiliation.
Inside the Rancagua prison, administered by the nefarious company we have attacked, are prisoners Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel, Joaquín García and Francisco Solar, to whom we send our anarchic greetings. We also salute comrade Mónica Caballero, kidnapped in the San Miguel prison.
A year ago comrade Luisa Toledo met her death after a long life of combat, resistance and dignity, leaving in her story thousands of lessons, teachings and clarifications to confront authority and capital. Luisa detested the lukewarm and gray positions, defender of street action, of the hoods and the street in flames, for this reason, on this cold night, we remember the comrade through the roar. We carry the action in our blood, which boils to remember our dead.
To the comrades in Italy, Belarus, Indonesia, Mexico, Germany, Belgium… may the autonomous attack mercilessly expand against power, in all directions.
Let us remember the weichafe Pablo Marchant assassinated a year ago at the hands of the police. To our comrades killed in action, Mauricio Morales, Sebastián Oversluij, Claudia López, Jony Cariqueo, long live their memory.
To all the cells of action that have attacked during the last time, all our strength and complicity. May the attack not wane, may it be strengthened and find its wide expressions of destruction.
We stand in solidarity with comrade Marcelo Villarroel, who resists in the prisons of democracy! In the face of the rejection of his release, we must be in the streets agitating for his prompt release.
To multiply the autonomous action!!!!
To dynamite the neighborhoods of the rich and powerful!!!!
Nothing is over, the war with power continues!!!!
