“We are not productive, it is true, but neither are we complicit. We are not productive, yes we are thieves if that’s what you want – if your inaction needs such pettiness to console itself – but we refuse to be slaves. From today, face to face, showing our teeth to the enemy. From today you will fear, no more humiliation. From today, we are at war with bourgeois society.”
– Severino Di Giovanni.
“Revolutionary robbery, expropriation, the recovery of means and resources for the continuation of our anarchist-subversive projects are part of the theoretical-practical arsenal that always accompanies the fighting minorities that rebel and fight against power. Only we can support the practices and ideas that walk the path of freedom and aim to take control of our lives into our own hands.”

Faced with the rearrangement of domination and its capitalist perpetuation: Neither boots, nor votes, only struggle!
It seems that, according to what the citizenry proclaims, we are witnesses of a key moment in the history of this territory; that we have cornered ourselves with our backs to a precipice to which, unless we do something, our fall will be imminent; it seems that we are witnessing an open war, fierce, between two political poles at odds at such a level that, like a cold war, endangers the subsistence and future of all beings in the territory dominated by the Chilean State.
On one side the war cry is: “Communism or Freedom”, and on the other: “Democracy or Fascism”.

We are completely unaware of the false confrontation of two supposedly different systems, the axis on which the battle is fought continues and will continue to be that of Democracy and the administration of Capital; the existence of a “struggle” of different policies only attempts to justify the supposed breadth of the democracy-capital system, the “diverse” essence of this and the supposed space for all types of thought; in no way do we want to be accepted by a system or a society that we reject, we do not want our politics to be one more among the options of this system; we want to destroy all options and the structure that sustains them. We have nothing to do with the electoral show and its staging of elections, plebiscites, votes and so on, we consider that this is nothing more than the tightening of the pin, the bourgeois rearrangement of the class for the maintenance of an imposed and existing order in disguise and according to the times.
