Chile: Update on the hunger strike of anarchist prisoners Nataly, Juan & Guillermo

The hunger strike of the anarchist prisoners Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Guillermo Duran who are held hostage by the Chilean state is in it's 54th day at the time of this writing. Here is a brief update on the latest developments...

Nataly Casanova transferred out of isolation

During the last days of May, comrade Nataly Casanova was removed from the extreme isolation in which she was kept, being moved to the 2nd “public connotation” wing in the prison of San Miguel.

Comrade Tamara Sol was also held in that wing until she was transferred to the extermination center of San Joaquin a few days ago. Now, Nataly is in the same wing with comrade Natalia Collado (Tato).

We understand this move as part of the progress in the fight led by comrades on hunger striker and their family and comrades from outside prison. It is a victory concerning the requests demanded from inside prison and a motivation to understand that by opening paths with struggle, the prison administration is forced to back away from the impunity that characterizes them.

Eternal affection in revolt to Nataly and the new paths that are open to share with more prisoners.

A victory for the comrades on hunger strike !

Anarchist insurgent Solidarity with fighters in prison!

Compa Enrique Guzmán leaves prison

At almost two months into the liquid hunger strike of compañerxs Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova, and Guillermo Durán, today [June 5th] one of the most important demands was achieved: compañero Enrique Gúzman was moved from prison to full house arrest. While it is a great step, we remain alert for the appeal that the prosecution will surely present in an attempt to return the compañero to prison, insisting on the logic of repressing the ties of comradeship and friendship as has been their behavior from the beginning.

After more than 8 months of investigation and constant harassment and hostility toward them, their families and close circles, today the compañerxs are smiling again because one of their brothers has at least managed to depart from the walls that wanted to enclose his uncontrollable solidarity.

The call is to remain alert to the decisions that will come from the compañerxs in the coming days.

Because neither their walls nor their cages will be able to put an end to the struggle for total liberation!

Because whoever forgets the comrades sequestered in the prisons of kapital forgets the war itself!

Solidarity and action with Juan, Nataly, Guillermo and Enrike!
