Special Report about the crisis of Human Rights in Chile: Political Prisoners of the October Revolt, 2019.
Below you can find the special report prepared by the Human Rights Commission of Chile Woke Up the Netherlands, at the following link Political Prisoners of the October Revolt In Chile
This report is the basis of our fundraising campaign to support the political prisoners of the October Revolt in Chile.
With outrageous numbers around state the repression and no certainty about the demands of the people the world witnesses an ongoing abuse of power and systematic violations to the Human Rights in the hands of Carabineros de Chile (chilean police) and the military.
This is the report from the Human Rights Watch: Chile: Police Reforms Needed in the Wake of Protests.
And here’s the latest report from the INDH:
- Date: November 25th, 2019.
- People visited in Police Station: 7.259.
- Wounded in Hospitals: 2.808.
- People with eyes wound/loss: 232.
- Legal actions presented: 499.
- Manifestations watched: 161.
Today we have learned that the answer the government has given to the demands the president has humbly listened are nine measures towards enforcing the Armed Forces, Military, Intelligence Agencies and civil actions (team of lawyers) to keep fighting “this war”. A war most chileans don’t recognize.
Deception, rape, horror, destruction. A disturbed life for everyone and a deep awareness whirl is happening in most of chileans nowadays. A variety of common awareness has been triggered in all citizens to even understand what kind of society we have had and which one we want. And we also get the worst of some psychopaths given extreme violence has been already reported. These are reminiscences of the civil-military dictatorship (1973-1990) getting real for the young and a vile second version for those who survived the state terror and massacre.
It is sad to count today these flagrants violations to Human Rights:
The INDH (National Institute of Human Rights) at November 6th, 12 hrs. reports:
- Legal Actions: 219.
- Persons detained: 5.012.
- People wounded in hospitals: 1.778.
And also an infamous world record: People with ocular wounds are 180 (editor’s note: had to augment this number twice in one hour to be precise). The disastrous number is followed in the world ranking by the Palestine-Israeli conflict who has had to regret so far about 150 cases in six years. We reached this outrageous record in twenty days. These events are -wickedly ironic- blind in the eye of the government and authority. The Human Rights violations, even documented and flagrant are perpetrated and ignored systematecally. Our leaders and authorities need to invest much more in resources to end the crimes of an unlawful, organized and ruthless enemy: chilean people. The president runs an administration that shows a support of 13% and rejection of 79% in the latest CADEM poll. The lowest score for a president since return of so called democracy returned to the country.
There is so much to show that only looking at how the people from the Academia responds (even before this distastrous announcement): you have reached world fame, stop getting people blind, respect Human Rights, let’s have a dialogue, let’s reason…
But… the government only has measures according to the second half of our national emblem phrase: “Por la razón o la fuerza” (By the reason or the force). Yes. We praise force, as a country, allowing the duality of one side abusing and exploting the other, and profiting from resources, consuming the decency of people in mass scale. Today everyone is a reporter and there are many more ways to overwatch Human Rights which are crimes against humanity not subject to statue of limitations.
The demands are quite clear from the citizens: a new Constitution democrately created, Plebiscite, Constituent Assembly. We see that many crave for a better country but the rotten bourgeoisie keeps trying to perpetuate the abuse and precarisation of life that most chileans get to live by.
