Public Statement Mapuche Political Prisoners from the Angol Prison at 25 days on Hunger Strike
Thursday September 20, 2012
We, the Mapuche Political Prisoners on Hunger Strike continue with our social mobilization from the prison of Angol, for our people and our freedom.
Although 25 days have passed, still there is not any kind of approach by the state authorities nor any answers to our demands, making it clear that the government does not want any dialogue with the Mapuche people nor recognizes nor acknowledges our freedom for which we fight every day in one form or another. We also make it clear that the Mapuche will continue with their demands and we will continue fighting for our freedom.
From the prison in Angol we will continue with our hunger strike until we are heard and we will continue to the end, always standing up and as the young fighters that we are and always will be.
Our demands are:
- That the Supreme Court of Justice reviews and annuls the
unjust conviction of Paulino Levipán Coyan and Daniel
-The complete return of all Mapuche territory.
- No more protected witnesses and an end to the political-
- Immediate demilitarization of the Mapuche Territory.
- Freedom for all Mapuche political prisoners.
-No more torture of children, women and elderly people in
raids against Mapuche Communities.
In our struggle for freedom and for our future, we will continue,
Mapuche Political Prisoners on Hunger Strike.
