Autonomous Community Temucuicui :
"Mapuche social movement will not stop until full restitution of stolen lands"
Aug 16, 2012
Faced with the judgment of Mapuche community members.
The Autonomous Mapuche Community Temucuicui , faced with the unjust sentencing of members of the community Wente Winkul Mapu, expresses to the local, national and international public opinion the following:
1. We strongly reject this ruling made known by the Oral Criminal Court of the city of Angol, since this sentence was only the result of the pressures of the big landowners, private individuals and forestry companies to the current government of Sebastián Piñera, who maintain the usurpation of the Mapuche territory.
2. This unjust and false sentence is proof of the practice of intimidation, repression and criminalization the Chilean State uses to stop the just process of struggle for ancestral land and territory carried out by the Mapuche communities.
3. We stand in solidarity and support to the community Wente Winkul Mapu, and onwards also will support all processes of struggle for the freedom of the brothers, now Mapuche political prisoners, and full restitution of the usurped lands.
4. As you can see, the government's strategy discussed in its security summit is beginning to bear fruit, however, we want to make it clear to Mr. Piñera that the Mapuche social movement will not stop because of increasing the number of police in Mapuche territory or the sentencing of our brothers.
