Santiago, Chile – On the plunder and damage in some ‘education centres’


We are part of what the press call ‘vandalism’, we are part of what citizens call delinquency, we are the individuals who tend to break the murderous routine with small actions, individuals for whom self-compassion and mercy have given way to tangible reality, a reality that shows its worst face in everyday life, a life that is crying out for destruction so as to give space to the overwhelming impetus of autonomy and total freedom.
In a context of struggle, plunder and destruction become essential for insurgents, rebels and anyone who is against the system; undoubtedly spontaneous and organized practice will always be there. As secondary, technical and university students are begging the State for improvements in education, the minorities that long for sedition continue to annoy the authorities and to foment widespread disorder.

Without thinking twice we take advantage of certain situations that we’ve been targeting for a while – at different times and contexts – the ‘education centres’ in Santiago of Chile, we plundered them, destroyed them and occupied them in order to spread the seed of anarchy in many ways; we took advantage of this for individual purposes and also – and mainly – for political anti-authoritarian projects. There was no exception this year, we plundered electrical appliances and various equipment which will help us in future political actions. We stole them from the promoters of inequality, morality and power. (2) For our part we’re satisfied, even if we will aim higher and higher, there are plenty of places.
Plunder and destruction are political exercises that make us smile in complicity with our affinity ones as we put them into action against the target chosen during the organization of an action. Routine is being broken up, we leave no space to authority’s lovers or those who play politics and go to the police and protect the property of others who ruin their lives with huge debts.
It’s time we became faster, we expect nothing nor do we have anything to expect from education and its puppets (comrades, leaders, directors, politicians); we negotiate nothing nor do we have anything to negotiate with the State/Capital; we need to start acting towards the exacerbation of the conflict with power so as to see it being destroyed in front of our eyes.
In memory of anarchist-nihilist comrade Sebastián Oversluij Seguel, who together with unknown persons emptied a room of a great many computers and electrical appliances for political purposes in the Juan Gómes Millas campus, Universidad de Chile, on 19th November 2010. (3)
Without any doubt such an inspiring story calls us to dedicate our raids and destructive gestures to Pelao Angry, who fell in an expropriation action in Pudahuel on 11/12/2013.
(1) We’ve been appreciating disorder, plunder and destruction during students’ demonstrations since 2006, with continuity in autumn 2008 and a decrease in intensity in 2011, which has lasted to this day with variable presence and strength. Throughout all these years, unquestionably, with an anarchist/anti-authoritarian fighting presence that left no one indifferent.
