Chile: Update on the case against anarchist comrades Juan, Nataly & Enrique

On Sunday August 2, 2015 Prosecutor Raul Guzman and the miserable Claudio Orellana from the Southern District Attorney's office decided to orchestrate a new maneuver against the comrades Juan, Nataly and Enrique.

This time the pompous theatrics were centered on realizing a 'crime scene reconstruction' with the presence of diligent witnesses and 'victims' of  the attack that took place on September 8, 2014 at the Subcentro outside Escuela Militar metro station in Santiago.

Neither Juan, Nataly or Enrique were present at the reconstruction but there were a large number of plaintiff attorneys accompanying 18 of the 22 victims. The Office of the Prosecutor sought to coach each of the victims regarding where they were positioned at the time of the explosion to ensure that all of their testimonies are consistent at the upcoming trial.

The performance lasted over 5 hours with prosecutors, lawyers, the police and the press all serenading the victims and offering threatening condemnations against the imprisoned comrades.

Finally, as the day was finishing, the opportunistic and mercenary Maria Elena Santibanez, a lawyer from the Legal Clinic who initiated the individual lawsuits against the comrades presented a new claim from a 'victim' who has now decided to be part of the lawsuits.

Juan, Nataly and Enrique to the streets!

Abolish the anti-terrorism act and abolish all laws of the police state!
