Chile Hit by Urban Guerilla Vandalism

Patricio Padilla, Ecuador
“The peaceful road is eliminated and violence is inevitable.
To establish our socialist regimes rivers of blood will flow.”
Che Guevara


The same well-planned violent protests with ‘anonymous’ leaders
broke out in Chile in October

Just five days after the end of the violent agitation in Ecuador, social unrest broke out in Chile on October 18, triggered by the announcement of a 4% increase in the Metro subway fares in Santiago, the capital of Chile. Although the hike did not affect the cost for students and the elderly, the protest started with students but quickly devolved into looting and arson by trained guerillas.

The same pattern repeated, where “the peaceful road is eliminated and violence is inevitable,” following the directive of Che Guevara, the subversive leader of the Cuban Communist Revolution.

So, in Chile the same violent demonstrations were replicated, wave after wave, without the government finding a solution or the protesters even wanting a solution. As analysts admit, the movement's ultimate goals remain difficult to pin down and its leaders anonymous.

About the damages in Santiago's subway lines, where protesters interrupted services and destroyed the stations, Chilean newspaper La Tercera reports: “So far, the Ministry of Interior indicates there are 79 damaged Metro stations, with 21 burned (10 completely and 11 partially). One of the regional prosecutors, Héctor Barros, said that in Line 4 stations, some entirely destroyed, "We discovered that the fires started in strategic areas, areas where the electricity systems are installed."

It continues: “In some stations a fire retardants were used. Some analysts have stated that the purpose of the use of these chemicals was to achieve greater destruction in the Metro cars and stations.”

It makes little sense for protesters against Metro fare hikes to react by burning down entire Metro stations and cars. Further, when the government of conservative President Sebastian Piñera backed down from that increase and returned to the previous fares, the vandalism did not stop. This seems a strong proof that there are parties behind the protests interested in destroying the public patrimony and using the ticket price increase as a pretext.

The result was the paralyzation of the Metro system, causing enormous financial damage to Santiago de Chile.

Infrastructure damage has been estimated at close to $4.5 billion, with $300 million for the damage caused to 79 of the 136 stations of the Santiago Metro, according to the Chilean Chamber of Construction.

As the metros blazed, the guerillas looted and robbed many small and medium-size shops and businesses, during the violent protests. The human toll alone is serious: At least 20 people died and hundreds were injured since the demonstrations began, the Ministry of Interior and Public Security reported on October 30. The Santiago Chamber of Commerce calculated commercial losses of more than $1.4 billion dollar in one week of protest. This was the balance after one week of the start of the manifestations that erupted so suddenly and strangely in one of Latin America's safest and most stable economies.

Churches vandalized

From a initial protest against transportation fares (as happened in Ecuador), the action was soon transformed into urban guerilla warfare and the demands became broader. There were political calls for the president to step down and a new constitution to be drafted, as well as social demands for improvements in education, health care and the pension system. Expanding even to the religious sphere, the hooded protesters began to vandalize and set afire churches.

These guerillas know perfectly that to destroy any vestige of Christian Civilization in the West, they must attack and try to destroy the Catholic Church. This is what they did by vandalizing several churches in Santiago.

In this regard the guerilla in Chile went further than in Ecuador. However, except for these attacks on churches, the urban guerilla followed practically the same tactics as it employed in Ecuador.

Recklessly destroying the national patrimony

Indeed, almost identical to what happened in Ecuador, the acts of vandalism started, well-planned and made with precision, carried out simultaneously and using special elements to produce the greatest possible damage.

The investigations carried out in both countries are bringing to light the presence of foreign guerillas, specialized in strategies and tactics recognized for their effectiveness in confronting law enforcement.

What is behind this turmoil that has fustigated Ecuador, continues in Chile and is starting in Colombia? It seems there are yet more waiting to be unleashed. Diosdado Cabello, current socialist President of the National Assembly of Venezuela declared that what we have seen is just a “small breeze” compared to the "Bolivarian hurricane” that is coming.

In other words, the warning is being given for the plans that Cuban-Venezuelan Communism has for the rest of Latin America. What has happened in Ecuador and Chile is a sample of what the left has planned and its short-term goals.

The story is not finished yet.
