Text from the flier:

Act for freedom Now!

Solidarity with imprisoned anarchists in chile
Framed for the “Bombings Case”
On Hungerstrike

This April 14th to the 21st was chosen as a week of agitation and propaganda for the immediate freedom of the 14 Chilean anarchists arrested on August 14th 2010. The arrests were a culmination of raids under what is being called the “Bombs Case”. The arrestees are accused of placing or being implicit in dozen of bombs set off in the greater Santiago area for the past couple years. They are being charged under the dictatorship era Anti-Terrorist Law. They are charged with “illicit association” as well. Ten of the arrested comrades have been imprisoned since August 14th, culminating now to almost 8 months of jail time, also 9 of the 10 have been on hunger strike since February 21, 2011. The other comrade joined the hunger strike March 23rd. They have lost around 20 pounds each, the hunger strike is indefinite. The prosecutor is asking for sentences of 10 years, 15 years, to life imprisonment. The comrades have kept their heads held high inside prison agitating with their bodies and small acts of refusal, on the outside anarchists have continued the struggle and expressed multitudes of solidarity, internationally anarchists have responsed as well.

As anarchists ourselves who have experienced an influx of repression as a result of our struggles, we act in solidarity with the 14 arrested. Everyday we choose to act against the domination of the state and capital. We hope that anyone who sees a comonality in this refusal can gather the courage to act as well, for when we are few we are weak, but as many we are strong.

These are their demands:
1. Freedom right now.
2. End of the judicial-police montage.
3. End of the Anti-terrorist Law, inherited of the military dictatorship (1973-1990) and improved for the ‘democracy’.
4. End of the time of investigation and realization of a just lawsuit.

Immediate freedom for the 14 compañerxs!
Prisoners to the streets!
