Santiago, Chile: Incendiary Attack Against a Transantiago Bus by Weichafe Matías Catrileo Autonomous Group


Received and translated by Insurrection News on 19.01.18:

It is always time for the attack, but we are not indifferent to the current scenario…while society rejoices seduced by the Papal visit and atones for their sins in the anxiety of waiting, we claim the adventure of direct action.

Arriving on the night of January 10, with autonomous desires in place, we left an incendiary device on a Route 01 Transantiago bus, activating it in the vicinity of Franklin and San Francisco streets. At the moment that the fire began to spread, the sheep driver suffocated it with a fire extinguisher, burning only the rear of this transport symbol of the commercial logic, delegator of times and pulses, adapting the daily to a more narrow social control, providing the comforts that are typical of an alienating culture. However, our actions violate these times, these comforts by choosing with horizontality and without leaders where and when to do and undo the black intentions of permanent conflict against everything that is positioned as authority.

Then, by striking this blow in such a time and place we understand that our decisions and words are linked with what we believe optimal at the moment of attack. For there are rhythms that are developed safely, and even more so, with a will that determines the wound of our enemies as an edge.

The materials, schedules and objectives are set only by us and advance in line with the direction of war…When we pretend that the damage-destruction is different, we will do so and the planning will point in that direction.

Nobody is going to lead us, ever. We are going on the decentralized, autonomous, freely associated, anarchic and violent attack. Greetings to our imprisoned comrades. Juan Flores recently sentenced for an explosive attack under the anti-terrorism law and Tamara Sol with her attempted escape that demonstrates that courage is the best fuel.

With a whole world to destroy, to multiply the autonomous action now! 10 years since he fell in combat…

Weichafe Matías Catrileo Autonomous Group


Note from Insurrection News: Weichafe (Mapuche word for warrior) Matías Catrileo was murdered by a shot in the back by a uniformed agent of the Chilean National Police on January 3rd, 2008 during a land reclamation protest in the Santa Margarita estate in lands of Wallmapu (so-called southern Chile).
