In this research paper, I delve into the importance of feminist and popular move-ments during the cracks in Chilean institutional politics during 2019-2022 in Chile. By analysing the care politics of five organisations inside and outside of state institutions, I visualise how their understanding of care informs their rela-tionship with-against-and-beyond the state. I argue that their understanding of care, in terms of the distribution, conditions and recognition of this labour, guides their positions on the state's role in the social organisation of care and informs how they deploy their action in relation with state institutions.
