The Chicago Conspiracy West Coast Tour 2010

by nc Thursday, Apr. 22, 2010 at 2:27 PM

Social struggles, reclamation, occupation, and combatant youth culture in Chile. Film showing, photo exhibit, and discussion in LA in early May

The Chicago Conspiracy West Coast Tour 2010
Social struggles, reclamation, occupation, and combatant youth culture in
Chile

www.subversiveactionfilms.org/the-chicago-conspiracy/

The Chicago Conspiracy begins on March 29, 1985. On this day, two young
brothers and militants of the MIR, Rafael and Eduardo Vergara, were gunned
down by police as they walked through the politically active community
Villa Francia. The Chicago Conspiracy is about today. Following a
national plebiscite in 1988, the dictator Pinochet ended his rule in 1990,
yet the struggle against both dictatorship and democracy continues.

The Chicago Conspiracy is about the Day of the Youth Combatant. March 29
is not only about the Vergara brothers–it is a day to remember all youth
combatants who have died under the dictatorship and current democratic
regime. The Chicago Conspiracy is about the students who fight a
dictatorship-era educational law put into place on the last day of
military rule. The Chicago Conspiracy is about the neighborhoods on the
outskirts of Santiago. Originally land occupations, they became centers of
armed resistance to the military dictatorship. A number of them, such as
la Victoria and Villa Francia, continue as areas of confrontational
discontent to this day. The Chicago Conspiracy is about the Mapuche
conflict. The Mapuche people valiantly resisted Spanish occupation, and
continue to resist the Chilean state and the multinational corporations
who strip Mapuche territory for forestry plantations, mines, dams, and
farming plantations.

The Chicago Conspiracy is about combatant youth culture and
intergenerational struggles, revolutionary hip-hop and militant
traditions. The showing will be accompanied by a photo exhibit on social
struggle and social war in Chile.
