The Autonomous Mapuche Community Temucuicui: Hereby we present to the public local national and international the following:

1. - For tomorrow Tuesday August 21, 2012, in the oral criminal court of the city of Angol at 9 am, is scheduled to start the emblematic trial against the villagers José Queipul Huaiquil, Victor Queipul Millanao, Camilo Tori Quiñinao, Felipe Huenchullán Cayul, Juan Huenchullán Cayul, Jose Millanao Millape, members of our community. Also accused are Jorge Marimán Loncomilla, Ernesto Cayupan Meliñán, the latter belonging to other Mapuche communities of Malleco, who are charged with the crimes of robbery, arson,
damages, conspiracy, among others, incidents that allegedly occurred on October 10, 2009 in the sector of Quino, municipality of Victoria.

2. - The main evidence that the Interior Ministry used against our brothers is the declaration of a protected witness (Raul Arturo Castro Antipán) who allegedly participated with all defendants in the events of October 10, 2009. It should be noted that Castro Antipán is protected witness in other cases in which there are charged persons and members of other Mapuche organizations, who receives a monthly salary of  300,000 Chilean Pesos ($620,-) approximately (argument has not been refuted by the prosecution), which to date amounts to twenty causes for various offenses, some even this year and that in most cases Antipán Castro has been acquitted, has been granted conditional suspension or the prosecutor has applied the principle of opportunity not to condemn. In addition, this individual is already convicted of the crimes charged against our brothers, but he applied the rules of the Anti-terrorism Act relating to leniency, allowing him to serving his sentence in freedom. In our view, this sentence only responds to a "strategy" of the Attorney General to give credibility to its witness and was necessary to maintain the charge against our brothers, because his testimony is the main evidence, and so it is a very good deal to accuse unjustly to receive a salary and free custody.

3. - It should be remembered that all the time spent in the research, (3 years), in this case there have been a range of situations that have affected and confronted our brothers, for example a lengthy hunger strike, imprisonment, underground interrogation under torture, searches to the community etc.

4. - This emblematic case, throughout the investigation phase, was held under the Anti-terrorism Act, using all warranty and strategy that the law gives to the prosecutor and the police to investigate, but at the time of the preparation of the trial, the prosecution was unable to sustain its orchestrated set-up and for contempt of court the public prosecutor, Miguel Angel Velasquez, was expelled from the case, being carried out by the Ministry of Interior, who on behalf of the Government seeks to condemn our brothers.

5. - On the other hand, the continued practice of orchestrating set-ups under the Anti-terrorism Act inherited from the Pinochet dictatorship, does nothing more than reaffirm once again how the paranoia of the right wing government and its attempts to criminalize social protest falls in absolute ineffectiveness, since it uses only the repression in all its expressions (legal, communication and police) to maintain the policy of deaf ears and its monologues

We extend the call to solidarity networks with the Mapuche cause, to be alert to the development of this emblematic court case, in which we will demonstrate our innocence and try to take the maneuvers and strategies of the state. In the same way we make a wide called to demonstrate, repudiate and denounce this orchestrated trial by supporting us with any form of expression.
Autonomous Mapuche Community Temucuicui.
