With a massive participation the march and Mapuche prayer service were carried out, with people from various communities who responded to the call made by the Autonomous Community Temucuicui, with the objective of accompanying the start of the emblematic trial known as "Toll Quino Case", in the city of Angol.
In this regard, the Werkén(Spokesperson) Jorge Huenchullan, recalled that during the investigation phase the Anti-Terrorism Act was applied to the defendants, with which the persecution could enforce preventive detention, which "held them for more than two years in jail "and that led them to make a lengthy hunger strike in which "they almost lost their lives demanding their freedom."
Daniel Melinao, Werkén of the community Wente Winkul Mapu, referred to the recent conviction of more than 10 years in prison that affected Daniel Levinao and Paulino Levipan, members of the community accused of attempted murder against general of police Ivan Bezmalinovic, chief of the ninth police area of Araucanía. Melinao blames the Chilean state for accusing them "without any evidence and without having committed any crime," adding that contrary to this, the policeman who murdered Jaime Mendoza Collio "enjoys impunity."
Rodrigo Curipan, Werkén of the community Rankilko, referring to the same subject, said that as Mapuche communities they feel "a deep sorrow for the impunity that means the death of Jaime Mendosa Collio and many other Mapuche who have died in the name of this legitimate cause". He added that communities are not responsible for the violence in the area, but "solely responsible, are the state and the government in power" and sentenced it will be shown that the 8 Mapuche defendants "are innocent of the acts of violence" for which they "have continuously tried to blame them".
The Werkén Luis Tori meanwhile, demanded the "immediate withdrawal of the police in Mapuche communities" also he demanded "the abandonment of the forestry's and the landowners who are over-exploiting the Mapuche territory".
The Lonko Victor Queipul meanwhile, called on those present to continue the support between communities and to have the strength to face the trials that are applied against the Mapuche.
Finally, whilst the trial inside the courthouse was conducted, outside, under a gentle rain, people pressent at the site performed a Ngellipun (supplication) in order to strengthen those who were exposed to the judicial process.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012
Wall Mapuche Angol Wednesday August 22, 2012,
Around 15 hours of today, in the Oral Criminal Court of the city of Angol, ended the second day of hearings of the trial. The Ministry of Interior finished to present the evidence, each of the witnesses at all times fell into obvious contradictions.
The defense, given the fact that there was not presented any evidence of participation against any defendant, waived their evidence and witnesses on the ground that they were not necessary in the absence of evidence from the complainant.
There was requested by the court to discuss the reclassification of the facts, from attempted murder to damages, first event occurred in the Victoria Curacautín route.
The Lonko Victor Queipul, asked about these resolutions, stated that it is an embarrassment for the Ministry of Interior to be calling upon a tribunal of the republic, to make a judgment without any evidence of participation. We hope that this BIG SET-UP orchestrated by the Government and developed primarily by the prosecution, led by the anti Mapuche Prosecutor MIGUEL ANGEL VELASQUES, is permanently collapsed and our Mapuche people get absolution in this case, he concluded.
Finally, the audience for the closing argument, will resume on Friday, August 24 of the present day.

MAPUCHE OF THE AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITY TEMUCUICUI ARE ACQUITTED
Wallmapuche, Angol, Friday August 24, 2012,
Once more is revealed who the real terrorists are.
In an awaited, unanimous, ruling, the courts of the city of Angol decide to acquit the 8 Mapuche community members (6 members of our community) of the so called Toll Quino case in a trial plagued with irregularities carried out by the known as anti-Mapuche prosecutor MIGUEL ANGEL VELSQUES , becoming clear that we always told the truth, therefore OUR BROTHERS are considered innocent of the charges, once again cracking the coarse judicial set-ups that are raised by the Chilean state against the Mapuche Nation, and that are holding prisoner and convicted to several of our brothers on false charges.
At the hearing, representatives of the Interior Ministry headed by Hinzpeter apologized for wasting the court's time and expressed their simple obligation to be present in this case, but without mentioning, much less apologizing, for keeping ten Mapuche community members unjustly detained for almost two years, who had to assume a lengthy hunger strike that nearly took their lives, demanding justice and dignity, for the economic, political and moral damage to the families, for the unjustified raids, for violating their homes, for assaulting with pellets to elderly, children, men and women in spectacular mass raids, for keeping occupied, militarized and besieged our Wallmapuche, for the lack of probity and legal, political and communicational ethics, being part of this show, presenting false evidence lacking any support, let alone referring the why of the brutality against our community for being Mapuche and fighting for continued existence as a People.
An excited racket is made outside of court right now, expressing the joy that at last justice is done, without forgetting that the state still keeps Mapuche imprisoned with this kind of Set-ups.
