The the Mapuche community Wente Winkul Mapu called on the communities, social organizations and anyone who feels solidarity with the Mapuche political prisoners, both in Wallmapu, as in Chile and abroad, to join hands and move everywhere in support of the young community members who are willing to give their lives for their freedom and that of their people.
In a critical state of health are Daniel Levinao, Rodrigo Montoya, Paulino Levipán and Eric Montoya the latter two urgently admitted in the Angol hospital after suffering dizziness, vomiting and tachycardia, consequences which usually worsen when being already 59 days on hunger strike, that is to say, two months without eating.
The community Wente Winkul Mapu of Lof Chekenco applauds that the five Mapuche imprisoned in Temuco have managed to twist the arm of the Gendarmes and have made them to transfer them no later than Thursday, but staying always on the alert for the fulfillment of that commitment and if otherwise, they will return to the dry hunger strike, which led them to the brink of death.
Also they ask to be alert to the demands that stayed on the back burner, such as the disqualification of the Prosecutor Luis Chamorro in Mapuche cases and the end to the abuses to visitors of the incarcerated peñi.
That's why the community and its werkén Daniel Melinao call to not lower the fists and continue the efforts in going out into the streets to in protest and support for these young people who are practically giving their lives to achieve their freedom, not to mention the fight of the communities for the recovery of the Mapuche territory.
"They have organized marches in Santiago and Concepción and it is necessary that all people go there once again to prove that the prisoners are not alone," said Daniel Melinao, summoning to the demonstrations scheduled for Tuesday. Furthermore, he summoned the people from other cities and other countries, to organize any form of protest, because these are decisive days for the plight of the incarcerated youths.
