The Struggle in Chile

The mass student protests that started in 2011 continue on into 2012. This past Monday saw thousands again pour out into the street. In the city of Valparaiso, there were particularly violent episodes between police and students. One such group participating in the movement is the Front of  Libertarian Students, libertarian in the anarchist meaning. Will do my best to translate their anthem:

in the Fel (Font of libertarian-socialist students)
to make the revolution,
for communism,
direct action, mobilization.

chorus:
for our fallen,
our duty is battle.
let’s go comrades,
to create popular power
I am libertarian,
I give my life to the struggle
-for this-
I am libertarian,
I give my life to the struggle

kids of the classroom,
we do battle against Capital,
in all the streets,
our chant will be heard

-chorus-

laborer, student,
we have a tradition:
anti-imperalist,
united against exploitation

-chorus-
