Today, it is very often possible to find socialist and “leftist” groups in Russia, which “cheers” the current political communist regime of Chile and its political course is perceived almost as one of the political “mouthpieces” of the international left movement. But, on closer examination, you can see another misguided “bomb” for the enthusiastic red wing of the planet …
Chile, the southernmost country of LA, whose water area borders Antarctica, is the main ally of the United States in Latin America, that at the moment for the United States, experiencing the fragility of its position there in connection with the “left turn” in many countries, geopolitically extreme is important for them. Chile continued to provide its territory for the construction of North American military bases, as it was under the military dictatorship (overthrowing the social enterprise of S. Allende in 1973). Two of them are located on the central coast of the country near the city of ConCon, others are being built in the South of Chile, due to which the US hopes to exercise control over Patagonia and Antarctica. The Government of Chile currently does not intend to do anything to achieve its independence, and the political elite of the country is puppet; she is confronted with foreign companies and the local oligarchy, and pursues his interests. During all 20 years after the dictatorship, the changing governments, which the world community considers democratic, in fact did nothing to bring to the spheres of life of the country positive changes that would contribute to the improvement of Chilean society, and would also allow Chile to be modernized. The authoritarian nature of the current constitution in the country, adopted under A. Pinochet, whose articles are legally legalized by punitive actions against people expressing in any form views contrary to official opinion, is, in the opinion of the respondents, a litmus paper that defines the true aims of governments. Despite the fact that in this country for a long time (until 2010) there was an economic upsurge, it did not affect the social conditions of life: in Chile, one of the biggest gaps between the welfare of members of the higher social stratum, and between the majority of Chileans (workers, employees, students, intelligentsia). The resources of Chile, nationalized under S.Alende, now belong mainly to private, mostly foreign or mixed, companies: “Sociedad Chilena de Litio” (lithium-containing products); “Sopmpania Minera San Jose” (gold, silver, copper ore mining); “Copmpania Minera Disputada de Las Sondes” (mining of copper, molybdenum ores). And also the Canadian Barrick Gold, the state “Sodelso” (copper, molybdenum, gold, silver), “Sociedad Quimica from Minera de Chile” (extraction of iodine, saltpetre) are nominally only such, de facto being mixed, since the owners are oligarchic families have long-standing (centenary) business contacts with representatives of business circles in England and the United States, and are members of the Bilderberg club. The oligarchs also belong to the “Comparania del Pacifiço S.A.” and “Copmpania Minera Santa-Fe” (extraction of iron ore). The share of foreign investment in the mining industry is more than 60%, with 90% of the output being exported to the same USA. Being practically equal in rights with Chilean, foreign investors have serious privileges: they are provided with unlimited transfer of profits and other guarantees. Since the power elite of Chile is still homogeneous, mostly from the same oligarchic families (the Agustin Edwards family, the Iris Fontbones clan, the family members of the late Andronicus Luksic, the Angelini family, the Eliodoro Matte family, and the family former president, billionaire Sebastiano Pinera). A huge problem in a country where there is a desert by Atakami and arid areas inhabited by miners is the problem of depletion of water resources. They are not provided with protection from ill-considered mining policy, which is less used by entrepreneurs (Ed. Yoma, Ed. Serda, Os Junemann, Al. Piwonka, H.-R. Tagle, Ig. Alamos), who bought up in 90 -th. the land in the South of Chile and created a water disaster, which today led to serious protest movements, but is not solved at the state level.
Some of the country’s patriots, because of the difficulty of living in Chile, live in European countries, visiting Chile, but maintaining constant contact with their friends in the country (often cooperating with independent media). The interests of the USA are consolidated in Chile, the country is close to an economic and ecological catastrophe, and our children die at the hands of the carabinieri “, people in Russia believe that M. Bachelet is almost the same figure as Allende or W. Chavez. Speaking about the change of the cabinet of ministers and the scandal surrounding the name of the president, one can conclude that the government of M. Bachelet, “which she shuffles as prescribed,” conceals behind him the ruling neoliberal oligarchic dictatorship, which bribed most of the left forces, from among “Old guard” of the political opponents of Pinochetism. Moreover, even the Communist Party of Chile, which has always been at the forefront of the struggle against TNCs, now – in the role of a political renegade, adopting a neoliberal model of the country’s development. “Today this party is the enemy of the Chilean workers, it places at the disposal of the National Intelligence Agency (ANI) the army of paid informants who know many who fought Pinochet and the oligarchs associated with him.” The basic social rights of the majority of the population are cut down by the unlimited power of the oligarchy, intertwined with the political elite: “today the entire political elite is decomposed and bribed by multinational enterprises.” having studied several Spanish-language sites and independent Chilean media, in which I received confirmation that before the 2013 elections M. Bachelet actively contacted the heads of foreign multinational companies (TNCs) whose interests were intertwined with the interests of Chilean oligarchs. In 2014, on illuminated US and LA media meetings of members of the Bilderberg Club, which took place at a gala dinner in New York, M. Bachelet was awarded “In South America, the outpost of US interests and so-called. The Bilderberg club is exactly the Chilean oligarchs, whose close ties with Washington and London number about a hundred years. With one of the oligarchs, Edwards (this is the oldest oligarchic family in Chile, which has Anglo-Saxon) a few years ago met the oldest representative (and one of the founders) of the Bilderberg club, D. Rockefeller. About this meeting, which took place on the island of Ranko, the Western media wrote about the establishment of a branch of the Bilderberg club in Chile. In addition to the Edwards, the clan of Iris Fontbones, members of the late Androniko Luksich family, Eliodoro Matte family, and former president, billionaire Sebastian Pinera (who has a strong nickname Piranha) is among the oligarchs of Chile. These are the largest representatives of the “owners of Chile,” which counts about 100 representatives of the highest social stratum, who made their fortune or globally expanded during the dictatorship of Pinochet.
“The election of M. Bachelet was financed by Julio Ponce Leroux, Pinochet’s son-in-law. We have legalized repression, and over the past 15 years, at the hands of the carabineers, more than 20 people, mostly young people, who participated in the protest civil movement, demanding educational reform and the re-nationalization of natural resources, were killed. The government of M. Bachelet, who before the elections promised to carry out social and economic reforms (tax, education, pension, etc.), is a kind of buffer designed to alleviate the ongoing opposition of the ruling elite and the social conditions of life that call for changes. Under these conditions, the possibility for the population in the presidential elections to again bet on M. Bachelet, whose father was one of the ministers of Allende and was repressed under Pinochet, was politologically correct. She herself, which is also important for her election, ran for the elections as a representative of the national alliance “New Majority”, in which a large number of parties that put forward the priority of social change are connected. M. Bachelet, a member of the Socialist Party, grew up in emigration to the GDR, but studied at the university in the United States. In the pre-election race, she defeated F. Matteo, a representative of one of the oligarchic families, so. these elections were to become in the minds of people a symbol of the victory of new forces in Chile, pursuing the goals of improving and developing the economy, transferring most natural resources to the state, and improving the social living conditions for the majority of the population. However, this is nothing more than a clever political move in order to once again get the Chileans to believe that the new democratic government will make positive steps towards an autonomous, US-independent development, integrating it into a community of Latin American countries that have chosen independence. Promises unfulfilled by M. Bachelet in the first term of her presidency, the lack of decisions of her government on the nationalization of resources were explained during the second company by interference created by the reactionary forces. Again, these promises of social reforms have been “hanging in the air” for the second year, and the “tax reform” carried out, 3% tax on big business, was perceived by residents of most major cities as a mockery of their expectations. This led to an intensification of social, with cruel measures to suppress such a movement. If in Venezuela the “reaction against the opposition”, inflated by the pro-American media, is limited to the arrest of two or three persons and also three to five deaths from various sides in clashes between pro-government forces and the opposition, the killings, torture and arrests currently taking place in democratic Chile , Western media diligently keep silent. The Chilean echelons of power and the oliglarchate fear that without such political games designed to “let off steam” of popular discontent, the population of the country, disappointed in their expectations of the changes associated with every new presidential election that has passed since Pinochet’s dictatorship, can not stand it, a united movement that claims revolutionary changes in the country. It is in order to avoid this on the military bases of Chile that there are now North American and Israeli instructors, also training foreign (Israeli) military, in the number of approximately 8,000 people. About the visit of the Israeli military on the territory of Chile, also pointing to the fact that for about 20 years there has been an attempt to settle the southern territory of Chile, in which the Indigenous people of Mapuche live, the so-called. tourists from different countries, mainly from Israel, whose purpose is to create Israeli settlements in Patagonia. The territory of Patagonia, the main area where the people of Mapuche (Araucan) lived, was still (as was historically) under the protection of the state, under the symbolic Araucanian border, even under Pinochet. At the present time, the lands in Patagonia are beginning to be actively bought up by private and TN companies, geological exploration and measurements are carried out with the use of the newest types of technical equipment. equipment (with delivery from Israel). In some places, mining work is already underway, with conditions for workers being the worst in all. The natural shortage of water grows into an ecological catastrophe, the consequences of which are felt by about 6 million inhabitants of the South of Chile, mainly employed in the mining industry. In Argentine Patagonia, as well as in the South Chilean part of it, the North American and Israeli military, collaborating with the Chilean army, are establishing a new military complex that will be more complex and modified than the military-built US military complex Area 51, built earlier on the basis of underground waters. This submarine base controls the water area adjacent to Patagonia, and can destroy submarines that have passed through Cape Horn from the Pacific to the Atlantic. There is an organization that at the moment has an undisturbed political image, and cooperates with student and trade union organizations that have the authority of the population as the only forces in the country that are really struggling for social needs and national interests. These are the Movements “Protection, the Right to Water and Environmental Protection” – “Modatima”, which unites informal leaders and activists from the environment of miners and indigenous people in the south of Chile.Its coordinator and secretary general is agronomist engineer Rodrigo Mundaca. “Modatima” fights for the nationalization of the country’s natural resources, primarily water, as Chile is the only country in the world that privatizes the water resources used in the South for the private mining industry and polluted it, which has placed the region on the brink of an environmentalist The population (about 7 million people) lacks water for basic needs, not to mention lost farmland and a violation of the ecological balance, and they are seeking a referendum on the nationalization of water, and then on the remaining resources, since in Chile there is one of the the sharpest borders in LA between the wealth of the upper class and the poverty of the huge mass of the population engaged in the resource-producing industry.The closest example is the neighboring Bolivia, where in 2016 the mass protest movement forced the TN K on a number of concessions; as well as Uruguay, where in 2017 the population in the referendum was supported by the majority (65%). informal forces that also require the proclamation of water as a national treasure. Chevron, Exxon, et al. In Chile, Barrick Gold exploits Copper Mines.
To do this, they would need, according to the Chilean sociologist Miguel Urrutia, to carry out a number of reforms, which are daily demanded by representatives of the trade union of miners, student organizations, etc., coming out to street demonstrations in the country. «Movto.Defensa del Cobre», «Movimiento Defensa Medio Amiente», «Movto. Defensa de los Derechos humanos sobre el Agua», «Mvto. Estudiantil por Reformas », « Movto.Sindical », «Movto.creacion Ley Financiamiento Enfermedades Alto Costo».
