From Friday, 12 February, that individuals and members of the assembly of Andalgala "el algarrobo" have been blocking the road, preventing the passage of the earth-destroying lorries along the way that unites the districts Chaquiago and El Potrero, where the vehicles going to the La Alumbrera mine pass.
The demonstratorsd were surrounded by agents of the Infanteria, by those of the Kuntur group and the local Polizia with guns, helmets, shields and police dogs. Yesterday, 15 February, the repression let loose to free the transit. Teargas, rubber bullets and truncheons were used, and 20 people were held. In the face of such a situation, about 600 demonstrators moved to the main square to demand the liberation of those being held and the resignation of the mayor and the governor ofd the Catamarca province.
The repression was unleashed again, but this time the demonstrators burnt cars, destroyed the offices of the mining company Barrick Gold, the town hall offices, then looted and set fire to a supermarket.
We support this and any other clash with capital, the state and any other kind of power..
For as long as poverty exists, there will be rebellion
