(en) Chile. The popular movement rejected the constituent ploy of the oligarchy By OPAL
Tue, 19 Nov 2019 11:46:53 +0200
During the early hours of this November 15, the Pinochetetic political parties and their
complement, the so-called functional 'opposition' of the Christian Democracy, PPD,
Socialist Party and a good part of the Broad Front, forged in Congress a formula of
'constituent process' which does nothing but strengthen the dominant oligarchic
institutionality. ---- In this way, Congress, the entity that concentrates the greatest
rejection of the population, considered that the popular movement would be satisfied and
everything would return to the "normality" of the cemeteries that capital so much requires
for its reproduction, expansion and utilities. From Congress or from above, the society in
struggle must be seen as an ignorant, irrational mass, necessary to be conducted.
So much was the optimism of the ruling classes, that the price of the peso strengthened
against the dollar, and the face of the most powerful economic group in the country,
Andrónico Luksic, celebrated the 'agreement' cooked between four walls.
Sebastián Piñera would end his term by signing a new Constitution of cosmetic
modifications in a couple of years and as unpopular as the current one, and would save
himself from paying his political responsibility regarding the innumerable violations of
human rights committed during his government and, in particular, in the last month.
However, the peoples are intelligent, they organize themselves and do not need to be sent.
The result of the conflagration of the system of institutional political parties, did not
respond to any of the demands and rights for which the awake and popular society has been
fighting since last October 18.
In Santiago, in the Plaza de la Dignidad (formerly Plaza Italia), tens of thousands of
people began to gather in the afternoon to protest against the new deception. Trap that
reveals deep relationships and key commitments between the traditional right and the
former Concertación or former New Majority.
One of the effects of the "arrangement" above was, among many, the afternoon split of the
Broad Front. For its part, the Communist Party with the Humanist did not participate in
the political kitchen, although yes, indeed, the President of the hammer and sickle shop
affirmed that they will become part of the constituent process.
Below, the OPAL video of the popular demonstration is left, which, for a change, was not
exempt from fierce police repression.
