Santiago, Chile: Responsibility Claim from ‘Conspiracy of the Black Cells’ for the Coordinated Attacks Against Catholic Churches on 12.01.18
At dawn on January 12th, the night of the hooded moon, we decided to attack one of the most repugnant and murderous entities in history, an entity that based on some stories has plunged millions of people into their misery and immersed their hands into passivity…we claim responsibility for the attacks against 5 Catholic temples in the sectors of Quinta Normal, Villa Portales, Central Station, Peñalolen and Recoleta. Two of the devices did not achieve their material purpose but they did manage to raise a large media uproar. In relation to these coordinated actions we declare:
1) We have no relationship with the MJL, nor with the attacks on political parties, which the media and the Southern Prosecutor’s office clumsily tried to link us to.
2) The motivations for carrying out these actions are our contempt for Catholicism from its roots since it went as far as portraying itself as ‘popular’, this popularity is based on the imposition that occured during conquest, when after this masscare, people, communities and ‘huachos’ of their almost extinct cultures had no choice but to adopt the Roman apostolic story. We will not respect or tolerate any church that sponsors genocide, looting, rapes and the imposition of authority, we will never have any respect for this murderous institution, that blesses the armed forces readying themselves to repress and intimidate the communities of the Wallmapu, we will not tolerate the main sponsoring entity of the anthropocentric ego that views the entire untamed nature that surrounds us and places it at the feet of the human race and gives it the role of protector and principal beneficiary, as if the existence of everything else that makes up this world depends solely and fundamentally on us. We spit in their false popular cassocks, which have only betrayed people, teaching them to live on their knees and to respond to torture with nothing more than turning the other cheek, we spit on their patriarchal culture, which they have built and strengthened for thousands of years, with eras full of death, such as the case of the inquisitions and persecutions of women for allegedly being ‘witches’ and even today, when their battered power tries to enter the bodies and the sexuality of the compxs, do not come to us with proverbial stories when their crosses and their symbols have been more associated with killing and torture instead of how to live a good life.
3) Our direct threat against the Pope is due to the symbol of authority that he represents and which we reject, Francis is no holier or less sinful than any other person in existence, we reject idolatory and authority, as this is a farce from head to toe that only gains strength when people believe it, this is how the authoritarian lie works…In the end there has never been any person or any other existence capable of transcending or simply being above others. On the other hand, Bergoglio (birth name of Pope Francis), for several years has been a sponsor of abuse, torture and authority…He was part of the ‘Iron Guard’ (a right-wing Peronist group), also during the era of the dictatorship he provided false information to the military on two members of his congregation (Jesuit) who were tortured because they were supposedly providing support to the guerrillas in the slums…as if this were not enough, he was also an accomplice in the theft of babies during the dictatorship of Videla. At present, he is a strong supporter of the accomplices of pedophilia, as in the case of Bishop Barros, whom during his visit to these lands he devoted himself to defending ironically every time they asked him. We think that this bastard is a deceiver of the people, who just because he doesn’t wear an ostentatious tunic or sit on a golden throne believes that he is disguising the disgusting luxuries and shit that surrounds him, who was able to deliver his fellow comrades to the torturers, who is able to deny with a mocking smile his participation in the kidnapping and sale of little boys, and also with his rotten smile is able to hide the huge scale of pedophilia and sexual abuse that haunts his institution, is worthy of frightening with the possibility of an action against him.
4) Hopefully our actions motivate and encourage other people to position themselves in a combative manner against the clergy, capital and all forms of domination, we say to them that there are no limits when it comes to attacking authority. Conviction, dedication and reflection are great motivators when launching the attack.
There will be no one or anything that decides on our actions, nor will we let anybody impose their decisions and perspectives on our lifestyles or our bodies, we do not forget the centuries and centuries of slavery and abuses sponsored by the church, we do not buy the story of ‘humility’ when his ‘holy father’ sleeps hidden in a house of millions, we will continue attacking, maybe in the future it will not be a church, nobody knows, hopefully our actions will inspire a reflection on Catholicism and how it came to this territory…we are aiming for the liberation of nature, we carry the conviction of causing all of this garbage society to collapse, this society that day after day loots the wild beauty of the Ñuke Mapu (Mother Earth).
