Note: The events that are claimed below happened on November 4 of last year, and their late date is explained by the fact that, in the words of the comrades themselves, it is “to be able to remember it with the aroma of the passing of time and to begin a new year of subversion and explosions.”

Santiago, Chile: Bus set on fire outside the Ex-pedagógico (UMCE) and armed confrontation against special forces of carabineros for the iconoclastic memory of Kevin Garrido and in solidarity with Alfredo Cospito and the comrades of the Susaron Case. (04/11/2022).
“We speak of a new war, a new partisan war. Without front or uniform, without army or decisive battle. A war in which the focal points are deployed far from the mercantile flows, although they are connected to them. We speak of a totally latent war. That has time. Of a war of position. Which is being waged where we are. In the name of no one. In the name of our own existence, which has no name” (How to do? Tiqqun).
About the action.
During a quiet and bohemian Friday afternoon at the Ex Pedagógico, while the citizen/student mass lives its lethargic and alienated youthful fun, a violent direct action took place. This action is framed within the so-called “Black November”, where it is informally called to commemorate the life and death of comrade Kevin Garrido through the violent, diffuse and multiform attack. The action begins with our exit through the front of the university to proceed to cut off vehicular traffic in the area. We set up a barricade of tires and debris that we lit at the moment of intercepting a public transport bus. Our intention was to cross the bus horizontally to the street in order to cut off all traffic, however the driver of the vehicle blocked its driving, so we proceeded to set it on fire at the place of its interception with accelerating liquids. Without intending to harm the mass of citizens, we were constantly rebuked and repudiated for this action. We did not care and we responded verbally to their desperate insults and we were attentive to any onslaught that could emerge from any individual-citizen-cop with a craving for civil heroism, we shit on those people who, upon seeing armed comrades, dare to insult them, believing themselves -imbecilically- untouchable, voluntarily putting their physical integrity at risk in front of us. After this eventful moment, we entered the campus to wait for the police deployment and to receive it with all our strength: thunderous gunshots and a rain of Molotov cocktails hit the bodies of the squad of henchmen who naively took cover on the corner of Juan Gómez Millas street while the armored cars crossed the street. They clearly did not expect our means of attack to put their miserable lives at risk, which left a couple of policemen on the ground (apparently wounded by the shots) and provoked an almost immediate response: they shot at us with their service weapons and gassed the entire area of the front gate. After this counterattack, we used and unloaded all our material and disappeared fleetingly from the place.
This action -as we mentioned before- is part of the international campaign for a Black November in memory of the savage iconoclast Kevin Garrido, 4 years after his murder in the Santiago 1 prison. It is also a blow to the gears of capital that subject all forms of life to a lethargy of normality/passivity typical of a counterinsurgent period catalyzed by the democratic mechanisms of a social democratic government that has established an atmosphere of post-transition.
We abhor this reality and have no hope of reforming it, whether for democratic or “revolutionary” ends, so we attack it. Besides, hope (even the “hope of revolution”) is just that: hope. We do not hope. We attack… “when hope dies, action begins” (Beyond Hope, Derrick Jensen). Let those who still believe in social and human redemption wait while their social bases are camouflaged according to the dictates of the government of the day. We no longer believe. We do not even believe in the Social Revolution that the prophets of anarchy occupy to embellish their babbling tongues and project a false image on the depressing reality of this world. We deny it. “The idea of “progress” is central to the modern Western paradigm in which the assumption that the whole world is moving towards an ever better future predominates. The idea of the inevitability or possibility of a global libertarian future arises from that belief” (“Desert”, anonymous). We leave theoretical fables for the masturbatory leisure of academics. We are not part of any revolutionary tradition that dictates and imposes our practical work. Our action is Pleasure through destruction. We live our anarchy today and not in a “revolutionary” tomorrow.
Perhaps a burned bus, a few Molotovs and a couple of bullets will not put an end to domination. However, we prefer to contribute decisively to its destruction without any consequences. Our freedom is found in the attack, because it is only when we untie the chains of morality and the servitude of capital and decide to take action, that we conquer that freedom of which the old and dusty philosophy books talk so much.

Statement claiming responsibility for the explosive attack against the central offices of the chemical industry Oxiquim S.A., in solidarity with anarchist Alfredo Cospito, from New Anarchist Subversion – Alex Núñez Cell / FAI (Santiago, Chile, November 28, 2022)
(Santiago, Chile) ATTACK WITH EXPLOSIVE DEVICE AGAINST OXIQUIM S.A.
With anarchist attitude, the central offices of Oxiquim S.A. in the municipality of Providencia, Santiago, Chile, were attacked.
The high-powered device did not explode because of a solvable technical problem, so we are aiming for more.
Oxiquim, a giant of the Chilean chemical industry and a direct supplier to the country’s major extractive industries in the forestry, mining, agroindustrial and fishing sub-areas.
Oxiquim, a company headed by Fernando Barros Tocornal, a businessman with a high level of influence in Chilean politics, a direct advocate of dictator Pinochet, former president Sebastián Piñera, and a board member of the animal exploitation company Agrosuper.
Oxiquim, directly responsible for the pollution and ecocide of the waters, territory and inhabitants of Quintero-Puchuncaví, defended by the Chilean Navy during protests against the so-called “sacrifice zones.”
This is a new act of revenge against the perpetrators of Earth devastation and destruction. It’s a new violent action by anarchist hands in permanent conspiracy and revolt. It’s a new attack justified by the existence of domination. It is another insurrectionary action in the no-holds-barred struggle for Total Liberation.
Against technological industrial complex that seeks to exploit and dominate all forms of life, WE ARE SELVAGE FORCE. Against illusions of democracy and against all governments and those responsible for Earth devastation, WE PROPOSE CHAOS AND ANARCHY.
We want that the news of this action reaches eyes and ears of imprisoned anarchist comrades, claiming solidarity as the continuity of the attack against power outside and inside prisons.
With particular complicity we stand with the vegan anarcho-nihilists arrested after the anti-speciesist attack against the animal exploitation company Susaron and with anarchist prisoners Joaquín García, Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar. We also salute the high school students imprisoned for the anarchist uprisings in Santiago high schools and all those who from prison resist and struggle against the state and capital.
We send strength to Boris, Ivan and the anarchist prisoners in France. Strength for Erick King and the anarchist prisoners in the USA. Strength for Toby Shone in England. Strength for Gabriel and the anarchist prisoners in Spain. Strength for Giannis Michailidis and for anarchists imprisoned in Greece, Russia, the Czech Republic and around the world.
Strength for all anarchists who take action.
This attack is part of the international campaign of solidarity with anarchist prisoner Alfredo Cospito, on hunger strike against Italian state-imposed isolation. Alfredo, this is for you.
For anarchist sedition against every expression of civilized domination!
By all means against authority! With caution and courage!
To multiply anarchist attacks against power!

A few days ago, I received the news that the indomitable Alfredo Cospito started a hunger strike to stop the application of the 41 bis legal torture regime.
For those who do not know Alfredo Cospito, he is an anarchist comrade kidnapped by the Italian state, since 2012, for the attack against one of those responsible for the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. This action was attributed by the Olga FAI-IRF cell and assumed by Alfredo.
After this condemnation of the comrade, he has been prosecuted for several repressive operations, such as Scripta Manet, Sibilla, which have managed to get convictions and have added more years to the already long sentence of the comrade.
The 41 bis is basically a regime of total isolation, in which the prisoner is restricted, limited and censored in all his communications. Censorship is one of the main motivations that the Italian state has had to apply the 41 bis to Alfredo, the comrade has always had the opportunity to spread informal anarchist ideas that urge action, as in the same way, he has also been concerned to be part of the debates that various groups and individuals promote in different territories.
In this way Alfredo, despite all the difficulties, continues to be an active and very valuable comrade in the construction of destructive ideas. The powerful know that Alfredo’s pen is dangerous, that is why it is better to leave him in the cage, as small as possible and with as many eyes as possible that can control his every move.

DN: Missed from 18th August
Comrades Monica and Francisco,
These words travel to your side from a cell far from your own. They carry with them the same complicit thoughts that crush borders and walls. The same persistence and impatience to return to the paths of fire. These thoughts do not die every day on the bars and uniformed figures that separate us. They remain alive accompanying the same necessity for yet another coherent plan to deliver to fire and gunpowder the order and security of this aging world.
Day by day more and more pieces of sky are being given away to the steel grid. And one question torments my head more and more: is it the concrete that grows taller or is it bowing its head lower and lower? But life itself comes to answer. Prison will not defeat us, comrades. For we remain with the same pride, wholeheartedly committed to the horizon of overthrow.
New formations of direct action are being formed in the territories where we have hitherto declared ourselves irrevocably present. New plans of attack are taking shape, travelling to all the metropolitan centres the deafening necessity of attacking the exponents of violence and exploitation of the oppressed.
Travelling to the present day, the words of the Italian guerrillas of armed autonomy are necessary to remind our tyrants that uncertainty is the most unbearable thing. No matter how many years of captivity may pass, we will remain irrevocably committed to the vein of imprinting theory through practice, proudly defending the anarchist guerrilla war. We are the links in the coherence of the past, present and future of insubordination, rupture and subversion. We will not be broken by incarceration for a moment. For will and necessity in the face of captivity are like the hands of a clock: while time tries in vain to divide them, they traverse individual revolutionary paths beginning and ending always at the same point.
I send you my wholehearted sympathy while holding my breath for the hostilities to come. All our strength to the incarcerated international community of anarchist guerrilla warfare and a raised fist to every fighting initiative that insists on clashing head-on with the order of this world.
Immediate release of comrade Marcelo Vilarroel Sepulveda
We do not forget the revolutionaries everywhere who have honoured with their lives the barricades of proletarian violence.

On the night of October 19, three years after the revolt, we attacked with dynamite the company SerCor located in the Las Condes district, specifically in building 150 of El Golf Avenue.
SerCor S.A. is a company of the corporate center of the Angelini Group that offers consulting and support to company boards for the administrative development of their capitalist businesses. SerCor is under the control of AntarChile, which is a major investment company, also belonging to the Angelini Group, and which manages assets of more than US$20 billion.
AntarChile owns more than 70% of the shares of Forestal Arauco, a company with 1.6 million hectares of monoculture plantations responsible for the degradation and devastation of soils and which severely impacts the minimum conditions that a community needs to live, such as access to water and arable land. In addition, the MAPA project promoted by Arauco plans to modernize the pulp industry in southern Chile, reinforcing transnational extractivism in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Uruguay, Canada, the United States, Panama, among other countries.
Antar also owns the fishing companies Corpesca, Igemar and Orizon with a control in assets of more than 80%. It should be remembered that the fishing company Corpesca bribed by paying more than 200 million to former senator Jaime Orpis (UDI) and former congresswoman Marta Isasi (former UDI) to defend the industrial fishing interests in the congress. Longueira was another of those who profited from this scheme, known as the “Fishing Law” or “Longueira Law”, which benefited the large fishing industry to the detriment of the autonomous fisherman. Through different suppliers, this politician received a sum of 730 million pesos between September 2009 and March 2015 from the company Corpesca. This bribe was intended to influence the bill to be favorable to large industrial fishing companies.

In the early morning of September 12, at 2:40 a.m., we placed an incendiary device composed of four half-liter plastic bottles with gasoline, tied with adhesive tape, which were set on fire by means of a wick that we assembled with 5 matches and 3 incenses tied with rubber bands.
We placed this rudimentary device behind one of the front wheels to ensure that the main damage was in the engine area.
Although all of their cars are incendiary, the choice of a Special Anti-Violence Force van is not random. There is no exception, every police force is the enemy and we don’t buy their song and dance about fighting against gender violence. The patriarchy will fall when the last stone of this prison society falls. We abhor their gendered capitalism. We abhor its State spawn forced on unfathomable differences to satisfy the needs of post-colonial oligarchies. We do not demand anything from the institutions, we do not want any police in our neighborhoods and communities with the story of women’s security. You, murderous cops, are the phallus (now scorched) of patriarchy!
We had a lot of fun imagining how you tried to put out the fire with your little buckets, you lackeys!
This action is for María Fernanda murdered by the police in the EPI of Chasquipampa in 2021, as well as for all those raped and murdered by this enemy institution. We do not want reforms of the police, we want its destruction! We do not demand the judiciary or its ministries, we want to see them burn! We invite you to set fire to their vans with this simple system that we have proven to be effective. It is easy and fun.

Squeezed in the grip of health emergencies, wars, increasingly fierce domestic repression, energy crisis, economic recession, systematic erosion of individual freedoms, dismantling of acquired rights and widening social gaps, we are asked for an act of blind loyalty like that of the dog that, though clubbed, does not shy away from its master’s oppression, of resigned submission to the inevitability of these events: the chorus of politicians of all colors, of masters, of regime shouters re-propose to us the fatuous promise of the solution of the problems that grip the daily lives of most, of the common well-being, to be obtained, as it happens, through “tears and blood” sacrifices to which we should also, ironically, grant our consent in the electoral ballet. It seems to us that this spectacle is a painful rerun. The assent and social cohesion demanded of us are aimed more at feeding the interests of political apparatuses and the business dealings of the masters of the economy, these already closely coalesced at several levels for some time, who thrive on the backs bent by the chain of labor and necessity. To us anarchist comrades, libertarians, rebels, refractory to authority, the way forward seems clear: to resolutely oppose against this power that suffocates us and against the state, the men and women who represent it, against prisons and all places where anyone is imprisoned, against the political and economic institutions that speculate, plundering the planet’s natural resources and degrading our lives. We claim the necessity of the conflict against this state of affairs because we are aware that the oppression we experience is the result of processes that unfold historically in a well-defined way, that this system of exploitation will not exhaust itself, that it is up to us, here and now, to pursue the idea of freedom to which we aspire. And it is to this clash that we bring back, without victimhood, the meaning of repression when it targets us: repression and prisons will continue to exist as long as there is a state to bring down and that will do everything not to fall, exposing any illusion of democratic justice. This confrontation is burying in prison so many and so many of our most generous comrades, Anna, Alfredo, Juan, Monica, Francisco, Davide, Claudio, decades in jail, whole lives facing isolation, censorship, physical and psychological violence of rigid detention regimes. Yet they defend tooth and nail the idea they keep alive in their beleaguered hearts. We do not want to be outdone; their courage and determination inspire our paths out here. Since May 5, our comrade Alfredo Cospito has been locked up in the Bancali prison near Sassari in 41 bis, an extremely severe detention regime that involves almost total isolation, absence of sociability, and almost complete censorship of correspondence, the recording of the monthly 10-minute phone call and the interview reduced to one hour a month behind a partition screen without the possibility of any physical contact, constant body and cell searches, the very reduced availability of even everyday objects (clothes, books, paper and pen) and always subject to the arbitrariness of the jailers. Such a penalizing and fundamentally vindictive measure is clearly aimed at silencing the voice and ideas of a comrade who, over the years, has made a decisive contribution, with his theoretical critique and practice, to the anarchist debate; to annihilate him because he perseveres with determination and dignity in his path of struggle; to dampen, with the specter of exemplary punishment, the initiative of comrades outside in solidarity. In Genoa, three comrades who did not spare themselves in supporting Alfredo and the other imprisoned comrades are affected by special surveillance orders requested by the usual prosecutor Federico Stalker Manotti, in an attempt to isolate them and inhibit those close to them; a further request for surveillance has been issued for another comrade in Genoa, and a hearing against him will be held on September 28. These are the reasons why we have decided to take to the streets in Genoa next September 25, a date, that of the elections, which is symbolic of the farce of the social contract being renewed on the skin of all of us; if the machine of domination advances with all its apparatuses to engulf the lives of comrades, in our most disruptive desire for freedom, hatred of authority and active solidarity we can find adequate levers to crack the enemy’s front. We invite you to join us. When repression becomes tight and lashing, the response must be clear, determined and consistent. Let us break the isolation into which they would like to plunge our comrades. Let us deploy ideas, forces, strategies in response to the anti-anarchist campaign that the state has been waging for almost a decade now.
Solidarity is a weapon, let’s use it!!!
Out Alfredo from 41bis. Against all prisons
From the moment of her arrest, in June 2020, Monica has been in the public connotation module of the San Miguel Women’s Prison. This module is characterized by the direct control exercised by the gendarmerie over the prisoners, with greater and more complex security measures than in the rest of the prison.
Along with this, Monica’s derisory yard time – 1 hour a day – makes her confinement even more oppressive, as she is confined in closed spaces practically all day long.
However, there is one factor that is making life particularly difficult for our compañera inside the prison: being forced to share spaces with women who have assaulted, raped and/or murdered their children. Monica’s contact with these people is at all times and at all hours, a situation that is becoming unbearable for our compañera. It is important to point out that Monica is not relying on the investigations and accusations of the prosecutor’s office, but it is they themselves who openly assume their aberrant behaviors, normalizing aggressions and rapes of their children.
In this sense, we are clear in pointing out that this represents a strategy of Power to subdue comrades who have turned their lives to wage war against authority, as Monica has evidently done. Power knows that our revolutionary ethic clashes head-on with these despicable behaviors and those who perpetrate them, which is why it deliberately exercises this type of provocations that represent, by all means, an added punishment.
We will not accept to share common spaces with rapists, so we demand immediately the change of module of our comrade Monica Caballero.
Together with this, the change of module would also mean that our colleague would no longer be subject to an exceptional regime of control and surveillance, which would undoubtedly improve her situation inside the prison.
AN END TO THE EXCEPTIONAL MEASURES OF CONTROL AND PUNISHMENT OF MÓNICA CABALLERO!
UNTIL THE LAST BASTION OF PRISON SOCIETY IS DESTROYED!!!
ANARCHIST, SUBVERSIVE AND MAPUCHE PRISONERS OUT OF PRISON NOW!!!!

A complicit greeting. Francisco Solar’s words for the Week of Solidarity with the Anarchist Prisoners
Revolutionary, anarchic solidarity is a mutual relationship that requires in an indispensable way a clear and decisive positioning of war both from the prisoners and from the like-minded environments of the street. On this basis, this week of solidarity with the anarchist prisoners comes to strengthen this relationship based on combat, which is nothing other than the existing complicity that threatens every expression of authority.
To break with welfarism and victimhood is to stop seeing the prisoner as an unquestionable subject by the mere fact of his or her situation of temporary confinement. Therefore, it is also to break with practices that tend to hierarchize and become authoritarian. It is essential to keep this in mind at all times in order to strengthen the anarchic anti-prison struggle.
A complicit salute to all groups and individuals who make their own the war against authority, which is inseparable from the anarchic struggle against prisons. Their actions and attacks are an important respite from the oppressive prison life.
A complicit greeting also to all the anarchist prisoners locked up around the world. A special embrace for comrade Alfredo Cóspito who is in an exceptional situation of imprisonment that the Power intends to make it perpetual.
An end to the sentences of the military justice on Marcelo Villarroel!
Let the prisons explode!
La Gonzalina Prison – Rancagua.
