As a result of the October 2019 uprising, millions of Chileans have reconceptualized what it means to live and to fight. A new generation of frontliners has emerged as protesters learn to carve out territories for unauthorized public activities and defend them against the police.
But the COVID quarantine measures suspended the October revolt. After months without substantial protests or public activity, hunger protests and olla comunes (community kitchens) emerged throughout Santiago in response to food shortages and the COVID economic crisis. Police deployed the same dispersal tactics they used during the uprising against both the hunger protests and community kitchens. Police violence against community relief efforts sparked public outrage, especially one video showing a guanaco (armored water cannon truck) running over an olla comun table covered with food.Continue reading “The people don’t need permission to feed each other” – #Santiago de #Chile’s community kitchens amid the #pandemic and #uprising

Santiago de Chile. Chile. A few words by Mónica Caballero from the San Miguel prison.Continue reading #Chile: Letter from imprisoned comrade Mónica Caballero in San Miguel prison
Prisons, cameras, police, snitches, drones, debts and mortgages, employment contracts have been some of its devices and mechanisms to reduce our lives to the sad imperative of producing and consuming. Even in this desolate landscape, surrounded by concrete, smog, buildings and honking, there are bodies that resist. From the resistances and uprisings, from the dissidents and desertions of the constituted orders, we have built and won friendships in all territories and at all times, from the most remote to those nearest. We inherit the conviction of those who have made their lives a permanent conflict, always disobedient to the logic of power and capital. The coherence of living and fighting is a flame that spreads and encourages us to continue.Continue reading #Chile: Road Block and banner drop [I. W. S. W. A.
