Santiago, Chile: Everyday a young combatant is born!
Responsibility claim for the action which was carried out on Monday the 17th of March 2014 outside the ex-Pedagogical School in Santiago, in commemoration of the “Week of the Combatant Youth”
In relation to conditions pre-established by the security forces, we felt the obligation to generate a combative instance that goes far beyond the very “day of the combatant youth”, understanding our struggle as something that transcends emblematic and focal dates, towards the destruction of social norms and the prevailing model.
Hunger, misery, poverty, injustice, police harassment, exploitation and all elements of domination and oppression against the most unprotected classes—of which we are also a part—are realities of everyday living, apart from the emblematic dates of street fighting, so this is a call to generate this struggle in every place, on every corner of this society, 365 days a year.
Regarding the details of the action itself, we would love to give you more; however we believe that on this occasion the images speak for themselves.
Everyday a young combatant is born!
In memory of Eduardo and Rafael.
