Words of Mónica Caballero from the San Miguel Prison, Santiago. Chile:
Compañerxs, friends, and family,
I’m writing to you again from a cell. I am being held in the San Miguel prison, for 14 days I will remain isolated under the protocol for prevention of contagion from COVID-19, later I will be classified and taken to a definitive module.
It’s been almost 10 years since I first set foot in the prison as a defendant. During these years my life has always been linked in one way or another to prisons, although the control systems may change, but their structure essentially does not, punishment and repentance are still sought.
Almost 10 years ago when I entered prison, I was fully convinced that a set of anti-authoritarian ideas and practices were fundamental keys to face domination, in all this time there has not been a single day in which I have thought otherwise. I stand in this prison with my head held high, proud of the road I have traveled.
Solidarity with all anti-capitalist struggles
Newen Peñis, Mapuche Political Prisoners
Subversive prisoners and prisoners of the revolt
To the street!
