Chile-Aliste/Fuentevilla/Villarroel hunger strike update


From Liberación Total (February 21, 2012) via Freddy, Marcelo y Juan a la Calle! (February 21, 2012):


Since February 17, comrades Juan Aliste, Freddy Fuentevilla, and Marcelo Villarroel have been on Hunger Strike to coincide with the days of international solidarity agitation for their release (February 19–29).

At the moment, we know that our comrades have been punished and placed into solitary confinement in response to the method of struggle they are undertaking. They are also being denied water in a clear attempt to annihilate them, not just morally but physically as well, since a lack of sufficient fluid for over 10 days would lead to serious health problems for the three fighters.

The attitude of judicial power—as incarnated in the prison guards and various lackeys—is to be expected, as is the obsequiousness of the mass media. The entire system of domination is adopting an attitude of blatant revenge in the face of those who neither yield nor apologize, but instead keep their heads high and their fists firm and ready to fight. Obviously, on one side are executioners serving the system, while on the other side are revolutionaries, subversives, anarchists—prisoners of the social war.

Punishing them sends a message to other potential or active combatants: you will be obliterated. It has been attempted before in the region controlled by the Argentine State, and it is now being attempted on the other side of the mountains. Nevertheless, they will achieve nothing more than strengthening the convictions of those who know that only struggle makes us free.

Right now on the outside, where we must break the prevailing silence that aims to bury our comrades alive, any gesture of solidarity is welcome and desirable.

Subversion may slumber, but it will never disappear!

While there is misery there will be rebellion!

from February 19 to 29

As the comrades now face the closure of an investigation that has lasted for over 4 years and 4 months…

As they have already been tried and convicted by the propaganda apparatus of the State-Prison-Capital, by the press and by its hitmen: the police …

As they have had to Resist the continuous onslaughts of Chilean and Argentinian Executioners-Guards, harassment and direct repression against their families and loved ones…

As they have maintained high, firm and fearless ideas, reasons, motives of Rebellion and Social Revolution stoking the Rebel fire of offensive anti-capitalist Resistance.

As the anti-prison struggle is delivered day by day around the world and that those of us still walking the streets having no limits other than our own imagination must do everything necessary to fight on all fronts, on the basis which this prison society stands…

That and much more is why today we make an international call for active solidarity with the comrades charged for three robberies of banking entities and the death of a policeman in uniform on October 18, 2007, in downtown Santiago de Chile.

We call upon all conscious minds, cells, groups, networks, communities and individualities, to all people that with their gestures and actions, fuel the untamed spirit that lives in the insurgent hearts of hundreds of thousands of Warriors, Autonomous Subversives, Libertarians around the world… That solidarity be expressed in all possible forms as genuine expressions of love for freedom, eternal complicity with our imprisoned brothers, fighters of a thousand battles who this year are faced with a mock-trial that hopes to lock them up for life, as hostages of the State and eternal enemies of power…

For the proliferation of networks of complicity!
Open your eyes: it’s time to fight!!
While misery exists there will be Rebellion!!
Only the struggle makes us free!!
Prisoners of the social struggle to the street!!
Families and friends,
Individualities of affinity
chili-argentinia support networks.
