This is a call-out for an autonomous, anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist picket/vigil in solidarity with the Chilean uprising.

On August 25th a 16 year old student, Manuel Gutiérrez Reinoso was killed by police at a protest against the government in Santiago, Chile. Over 1,200 protesters have been jailed in the last 3 months. What started out as student protests over privatization of education has now broadened to a larger social movement including organized mine workers and anarchists.

Like most social movements, this one also has its contradictory aspects; there is a young person (member of the Chilean CP) who's become a media celebrity. Yet there are may examples of horizontal, autonomous forces as well; Chilean anarquistas, although small in numbers, are strongly involved and there have been many clashes in the streets against the police.

Friday, September the 9th, (the last day the consulate is open before Sept 11th, the day of the CIA/Chilean military coup in 1973), we will gather in front of the Chilean consulate, located in downtown SF.

We invite all those who are also interested in autonomous, anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist organizing to bring banners, signs, candles, images, offerings for the altar, Chilean music, friends, family and comrades.

QUE VIVA EL MOVIMIENTO REBELDE EN CHILE!!!
