On January 3rd, we received an email from Roberto Flores Terceros of Bolivia, asking us to publish a “right of response” from Nina Mancilla, Virginia Aillón and Paula Estenssoro in reply to some texts that we have published (see “While witches are being burned: Against indifference, delation and complicity with the State” in Dark Nights #27 (pdf); and “About what happened in Bolivia” (Spanish link)).
In summary, on May 29, 2012, the Bolivian State carried out a large scale anti-anarchist operation. Twelve sectors conducted the arrest of thirteen people, all suspected, at different levels, of being members or having relations with members of the FAI/FRI . The majority were released in freedom after supplying some information, ending in the arrest of other persons. These repressive operations are the State’s response to a series of attacks with explosives on ATMs, an official building, and fast food chains, all claimed by the FAI/FRI.
Of crime after crime, only five remain accused: Henry Zagarrundo and Mayron “Krudo” Kioshiro who are imprisoned, as well as two people from OARS  and Nina Manchilla who are on house arrest.
From the beginning, Henry did not cede anything to the police interrogator, did not play the game of guilt and innocent and rejected any kind of collaboration with the enemy.
Krudo collapsed before the cops, playing the game that his lawyer asked him to, signing a statement that implicated the others, before explaining himself publicly in a letter where he expressed his regret for not having been successful against the cops.
Nina Mancilla has not ceased to proclaim her “innocence” at the expense of the others: she published a letter in which she says that she recognized one of the “guilty” in a video of the cops, without naming her, but giving them information enough to help the police in their work, and attributing to the person in the video–instead of the State and its prison guards–responsibility for her own incarceration. In that letter, she invites the “guilty” to “assume their responsibilities,” which would mean–if we follow the thread of her thinking–that they should hand themselves over to the cops.
In the letters Nina and her friends sent us, they confirm their positions, namely: the conflation of all violent action with machismo; innocentism; betrayal; and disassociation . In the letter, Nina untiringly reiterates her innocence, calling the communiques that report on her position as a traitor “police provocations,” blaming those who go on the attack as vandals (pejoratively understood) and “Papa’s children.” 
The texts from her “solidarious” friends are of the same kind and merit no more attention than hers does. 
Nina concludes her ardent diatribe in defense of libertarian snitching, affirming for us that she is our enemy . In effect, our anarchism has nothing to do with libertoid citizenism, which has nothing reproach, of Nina and her friends or OARS , nor do we have anything to do with the alchemists of their kind who manage, with such cleverness, to make anarchism rhyme with the conservation of the existent, transforming ink into shit. That being so, yes, we are enemies.
Strength, courage and determination to Krudo.
Solidarity with Henry, your attitude and intransigence in spite of the continually tightening siege between the State and the State’s libertarian collaborators inspires us, even from the other side of the world, since the social war has no borders.

P.S. If we have taken the trouble to speak about these letters, it is not to provide means of communication for these lowlifes. This is why we are not publishing the texts. Nevertheless, compas who want to read them can put themselves in touch with us.
