The undersigned diversity, gathered in an Assembly on September 12, communicate to the national and international community and the Mapuche People that:
1.- We undertake the commitment to give life and strength to the call to mobilize for the Immediate Freedom of the political prisoners of the Revolt for this October 5. In the heat of the ideas and proposals, this mobilization was defined as a Day of Territorial, National and International Protest.
2.- The urgency of this call is determined by the effecting of the trials against the political prisoners of the Revolt, which are characterized by procedural aberrations, by the disproportionality of the legal qualifications and by the very high penalties requested by the State of Chile. And it is done for this October 5, because it is a day full of contrasts: while the Power will celebrate its Democracy as much as possible, on this other side we will be in protest demanding the Freedom of the Political Prisoners of the Revolt.
3.- We call on diversity to join in and make this Day of Protest their own, with their ideas, speeches, styles and aesthetics. The call is simple: to protest as you can and however you want... any expression in which the demand for immediate freedom for the political prisoners of the Revolt is manifested is valid. We make a transversal and diverse call, because it is a true reflection of the reality of the Political Prison of the Revolt. Political prisoners are boys, girls, adolescents, popular youth, high school students, university students, professionals, technicians, teachers, social workers, street peddlers, artisanal fishermen, construction workers, unemployed, skaters, musicians, visual artists, poets, gender dissidents, environmental defenders, social fighters, indigenous peoples and nationalities, etc. We call to all this diversity that the Political Prison of the Revolt represents to become an active part of the Day of Protest on October 5.
4.- Although this call focuses on the Political Prison of the Revolt, it is also a moment to make visible the total reality of Political Prison in the country. We cannot forget the Mapuche political prisoners, who have carried out a very long Hunger Strike, as well as the existence of political prisoners since before October 18, 2019 and the comrades who have been deprived of liberty in recent months.
5.- We call on the students to join this mobilization day, with their daring and creativity; we call the workers to stop work; we summon the residents to take to the streets on October 5 at 8:00 p.m. in all territories, joining the calls that will emerge from the territorial and popular assemblies or generating their activities. We also call on organizations and defenders of Human Rights to join and generate events during this day. We call on the international community to mobilize on the outskirts of the Chilean State premises abroad.
6.- To conclude, we propose to carry out a set of actions prior to October 5, such as mural days, rallies, marches, agitation and propaganda days, canvas paintings, etc. Also, we propose that the same day of October 5 an effective pressure be exerted that contributes in the fight for the freedom of the political prisoners of the Revolt, and also this day should be a contribution in the ascending escalation of mobilization close to being completed the year of the beginning of the Revolt.
IMMEDIATE FREEDOM TO THE POLITICAL PRISONERS OF THE REVOLT: OCTOBER 5 DAY OF TERRITORIAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL PROTEST !!!
IN THE FACE OF THE SENTENCES REQUESTED BY THE STATE: ACTIVE SOLIDARITY EVERYWHERE !!!
