THE STATE DOESN’T TAKE CARE OF YOU…
IT CONTROLS YOU AND WATCHES OVER YOU
On March 19, a nationwide curfew was decreed, prohibiting traffic on the streets between 10pm and 5am, in order to combat the spread of COVID-19 and protect people’s health. After this measure, the miserable troops of the Army, Carabineros and PDI (Investigations Police) are in charge of implementing this control mechanism.
We understand that having decreed a curfew only responds to the needs of the State and has as its only objective the control and strengthening of the order and institutionality of power. Neither the military nor the police take care of us, they only exercise the oppressive role for which they are prepared.
These days there is an expansion of surveillance, registration, dependence on the state and social control. They show us the friendly side of these repressive measures, however, we must be attentive to the constancy of these tools and prevent them from becoming everyday.
They seek to lock us up, isolate us and above all eradicate any kind of protest in the streets. This is what the Curfew is about, imposing the normality of what is sick, of fear and passivity; let us not allow ourselves to be defeated. In order to put an end to this machinery of control and destruction of our autonomy, we must continue the permanent conflict against what seeks submission.
Today and forever, against the military and the police
Against your Wars, against Peace
