#Chile: The Triumph of Democracy and its False Critics

Chile. Statement by Unpacified anarchists from southern Abya Yala about the electoral triumph which will lead to the change of the Constitution and the continuation of the revolt.

While thousands of Chileans celebrate the electoral triumph which will lead to the change of the Constitution, we are still on the warpath against all forms of power.

Today, the Chilean state, political parties and the official press celebrate with their citizens the nauseating triumph of democracy, the institutional path and of the civic and republican culture, as if it were the triumph of winning the world football championship.

How will the “rebels”, who have become proud voters today, come to terms with this contradiction? We do not know.

What we do know is that those who only yesterday denounced the “brutality” of the repression, today were kindly received in polling stations guarded by the police and the military.

What we also know, is that today the so idealized inhabitants of working-class neighborhoods dance and sing, drunk on democracy, on the streets stained with the fresh blood spilled of Anibal Villarroel, murdered by police bullets three days ago.

The winner is Chile, the winner is the state, the winner is the society with its desire to live under a new social deal under domination, the winner is the will of the majority of people to create a new social consensus. Ultimately, with more or less barricades, the winner is still the same old script written and rewritten in the palaces of power throughout history; to stop revolts, to divert rebellions into institutional channels and into the game of political parties.

And power laughs, laughs and laughs again. It laughs because the institutions are bonded. Power laughs because now it will have at its disposal more “conscientious” and democratic citizens, who will voluntarily help to designate the refractory, the different, the insurgents, the “marginal”, the “violent ones” that interfere with its processes of change full of their disgusting civility.

Power laughs, because it knows that even some pretend anarchists, full of guilty hope, went to the polls to officially bow to the enemy, to renounce their ideas, to capitulate in their convictions as changeable and volatile as the memory of the “people” so fantasized.

We, the proud minority of seditious ones, continue to wage the war against power, without confusion, multiplying and strengthening ourselves in chaos.

Because our revolt did not start on 18th October 2019, and it will not end with a dirty plebiscite.

DEATH TO THE STATE AND CARNIVAL OF DEMOCRACY.
ANARCHY LIVES IN CONTINUOUS ATTACK ON DOMINATION.
FOR PERMANENT INSURRECTION, WITHOUT LEADERS OR LEADERSHIP,
WITH OUR DEAD IN OUR MEMORIES AND OUR PRISONERS IN THE STRUGGLE,
LET’S CONTINUE THE WAR AGAINST ALL FORMS OF POWER.

Unpacified anarchists from southern Abya Yala ($hile).
