17 Dec 2010 - Even before the bodies of the prisoners of San Miguel have gone cold the show by the guardians of order to hide what happened has already begun.
More prisons seems to be the most feasible solution for those who profit by imprisonment. How many lives have the prisons taken away, how many dead stain the uniform of the guards?
The deaths of the 81 prisoners add themselves to a long list of crimes that have gone unpunished, which the State is solely responsible for. Inside many prisons, many have decided to face the torturers and take action. Here, in the women's detention centre, every day the number of women who join the Hunger Strike of thousands of prisoners is increasing in all the territory dominated by the Chilean State. Many have also stitched their mouths and are isolated in the punishment sections.
If anyone who dares to put the laws of the powerful in question is a criminal, then I assume that denomination.
As I finish writing these words, they are searching the former Penitenciario. The news reports that there are 1,500 prisoners on hunger strike, the revolt must be punished. The fire made its presence both inside the Extermination Centre and outside, by their families.
You don't embellish cages, you destroy them!
For the end of this and any other society.
No more Anti-terror Laws.
