“According to our source inside the military, the attempt to clothe the
coup d'état with legitimacy has failed. The repressive machinery in charge
of annihilating the counter-coup is beginning to crack. What seems to the
"good" public to be a new government that presumably has them all with it,
is showing signs of unease and disapproval with the latest events (of
massive repression), behind the scenes. There is  a tangle of internal
conflicts, intrigues and splits inside both the Armed Forces and the
Police.”

UNREST, REJECTION AND DESERTIONS IN THE ARMED FORCES

"This is the first time that joint operations of a repressive nature have
been carried out between the Armed Forces (FFAA) and the Police in the last
20 years. Normally, political decisions for the use of both in repressive
acts were made independently; this is the first time that joint repressive
operations have being carried out, generating a malaise in both
institutions, due to a long inter-institutional conflict that has been
going on for more or less a century".
