this is our job
From Hommodolars Contrainformación (June 29, 2010):
From the January 22 Collective to all anarchist social networks in Chile and the rest of the world:
Brothers and sisters,
We have begun the struggle for anarchist dignity, enduring four days on hunger strike inside Santiago Prison Death Camp, A Wing. Our strike can only be resolved by transferring us to Santiago Maximum Security Prison and ending all prison injustice. All the arguments we’ve made have fallen on the deaf ears of the Chilean Police, who collude with a fascist state that endorses every violation of human rights and uses brazen deception in order to capture anarchist social fighters. Brothers and sisters, we think that struggling—sure of our convictions—to maintain our dignity as warriors for life makes us part of a reality that will always be alien to the entire capitalist system. We are calling for mobilizations in every street so that people can be free from misery and injustice. In here, we are fighting to tear down the walls of the prison system. Let’s unite to gain more space for anarchists. Police are on alert to stop us from struggling on their turf, where we are now captive. We denounce every injustice and prison rape.
TO FIGHT AND DESTROY PRISON SOCIETY!!
COMRADES IN CHILE AND THE REST OF THE WORLD: BE STRONG
