The Ramon Ramon group is as yet unknown. But its threats are explicit.« The silence of the Pampa and the desert has stifled our steps : but we have worked out the next attack. » The group communicated its message Thursday evening on the Bio Bio radio station, stating that they want to target « Dakar, spectacle of the powerful » when it goes through Chile, as they say they attempted to do, apparently unsuccessfully, during their passage through Argentina.
The group's name is inspired by that of an anarchist of the beginning of the 20th century. In Chile, anarchists have claimed a number of minor explosive attacks over the past few years, which have sometimes caused slight injuries. About one hundred such explosions have been reported since 2004, the latest in November, outside a hotel and two banks in Santiago. And the organisers of the Paris-Dakar rally have changed the course to escape the terrorist threats.
