Chile – Letter from Nataly Casanova, Enrique Guzmán and Juan Flores.


Translation note: the following letter written by the imprisoned anarchist comrades Nataly, Enrique and Juan, was written for the SOLIDARIDAD A FLOR DE PIEL tattoo and body art convention that was held in solidarity with the prisoners of the social war in Santiago on November 4th.
These words were born and flew from the prison cells of San Miguel, the special high security unit and the former pententiary, to send a greeting of complicity that we dedicate to the comrades who have organized and given life to the SOLIDARIDAD A FLOR DE PIEL tattoo and body art convention…
With these first words from within the torture centres, we would like to send fraternal and complicit greetings to those who, at the intersection of rebellion and insubordinate creativity, organized and participated in this anti-prison initiative…a solidarity initiative for those who feel the bitter taste of prison every day – the anger, the frustration and the indignation of not being able to materialise the war because they are surrounded by bars, cameras and guards…
In this sense, we share the same anger, frustration and indignation, against the bastards that maintain and perpetuate this society, that imprisons our lives and the lives of our brothers and sisters… that is why we send our respect and fraternal love to those conscious minds that do not give space to inaction and indifference.

Approximately 7 and a half months ago we found ourselves at the mercy of the prison police with daily searches and transfers to the courts of the Chilean state, who judge our desire to confront the Dominion, a trial that discusses our supposed participation in the detonation of bombs at the Los Dominicos metro station, Police Stations 1 and 39 in Santiago and against the Escuela Militar Subcentro (actions that were claimed by the comrades from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and the International Conspiracy for Revenge). The trial is in its final stage, following the legal / fiscal arsenal and the entry of more than 150 testimonies, 80 experts, 230 documents and 640 pieces of expert evidence. This Monday they will discuss the days required (which can be no more than 4) to prepare the closing arguments…
With a signal of complicity with the comrades in the prisons of Korydallos (Greece), those in Ferrara (Italy) and the immense number of brothers and sisters who have been imprisoned or fallen in this war, we say goodbye, nourished with the pleasant taste of solidarity that you have shared with us!!!
