[INTERNATIONAL WEEK OF AGITATION FOR IMPRISONED ANARCHISTS]
ABOUT THE ARRESTS OF MONICA AND FRANCISCO AND THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL THE CAGES
With an open horizon that is always beyond,
and that strength to seek it out with tenacity and will.
When it seems closest, it is when it is furthest away.
I have so many brothers and sisters, I can tell you about them.
Once again the most unpleasant news came, those that are not alien to anarchist circles and that refer to raids and arrests. And once again, they referred to Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, who have been singled out and linked again by the state to a series of explosive attacks against Carabineros units and to the former minister of the interior, Rodrigo Hinzpeter. The walls of an infamous Chilean prison envelop the comrades, those who had already been seen during the Bombs Case, those who were not so different from those who held them during their years of captivity in the cages of the Spanish state and those who, throughout the world, hand out punishments and focus on crushing rebellion against authority, but who, in their case, in their constant anarchic journey, have failed in the most beautiful way.
This achievement of words spun together remains infinitely short to capture that revolt of sensations that shakes us when one of our own is captured and that cannot be harmlessly digested, nor passively forgotten. Where words are not enough, gestures, initiatives, solidarity in all its forms can be unleashed, reaffirming the bonds in the most complicated moments, where others more superficial or based on pure interest, would be shattered. And this says something about what we pursue, about who we are and about the way we have to launch ourselves into the world from the path of anarchism.
