PUBLIC STATEMENT by Mapuche Community Newen Mapu, Chile

With great joy we want to share the welcome of our Lonko Juan Ciriaco Millacheo


From Chequenco Lof, Community Newen Mapu, we communicate to the national and international public opinion, to Chilean social organizations, to the communities in resistance and our people Mapuche nation, the following:

Kiñe: With great joy we want to share the welcome of our Lonko Juan Ciriaco Millacheo back to his Community, after the long and difficult nine years of hiding and worthy resistance facing the unjust sentence imposed by the bosses of this country.

Epu: Our Lonko Millacheo had been convicted under the Anti-Terrorism Act to 10 years and one day in prison, within the framework of the trial for the burning of the farm Pidenco-Poluco in 2004, a trial riddled with evident irregularities, that today is about to be reviewed by the Inter American Court of Human Rights, where there will be aired all the lies and setups which led to to convicting the Mapuche fighters.

Kila: Having been arrested in Argentina, in a irregular joint operation of the repressive forces of the two countries, he was put on the Chilean border, without mediating any of the usual procedures in such cases,

reminding us of the old times when for the repressive forces of the southern cone the borders did not exist at the moment of pursuing and assassinating those who fought to overcome this inhuman system that governs us.

Meli: Our Lonko came to be 25 days imprisoned in the prison of Angol, sharing with the young community members of our Lof who are in the prison, awaiting trials after "investigations" riddled with lies, based on paid protected witnesses, processes directed by the racist anti-Mapuche prosecutor Chamorro.

Kechü: Having revised his procedural situation, the court of Collipulli accepted the thesis of the defense as he was accredited the half prescription of the penalty, dictating a sentence of 800 days, which must be met in freedom with a monthly signature.

Kayü: We gratefully acknowledge the great solidarity of the Mapuche communities, of the poor and anonymous, Mapuche and non-Mapuche, on either side of the artificial border with Argentina, who over the years have provided shelter, support and care to our ancestral authority.

Without the support and kindness of hundreds of the nobodies of our territory, it would have been impossible to resist so many years in productive hiding.

Regle: We reaffirm in this occasion our commitment to continue the fight with a dignified people, resisting the attempts of the Chilean state to make us disappear, with the example of resistance of the Lof Chequenco, willing to keep their demands despite any threat or judicial setup.

 The resistance of a people who fight for their identity, is no terrorism, no crime!!!! 
Stop the States lies to imprison Mapuche!!!!

Lonko Juan Millacheo is released after court accepted prescription of penalty, Chile

February 27, 2013

This Wednesday february 27, the Lonko of the Community Newen Mapu of Chequenco was released, after the Court of Collipulli accepted the half prescription of punishment.

The Lonko Juan Ciriaco Millacheo Licán was sentenced in 2004 to 10 years in prison on charges of arson under the Anti-Terrorism Act for the case of the Poluco Pidenco estate. However, the Lonko resisted the persecution, evading imprisonment for nearly a decade.

The Mapuche authority was arrested on Friday February 8 in Neuquén, Puelmapu (Argentina), being taken to the Chilean justice by PDI personnel and entered into Angol prison, where he began a hunger strike.

After almost three weeks, today the Court of Collipulli decided to accept the request of the defense of ordering the half prescription of the penalty, for the time elapsed since the events of which he was accused. Thus, the sentence was reduced from 10 years in prison to 818 days of house arrest, which he must meet with a monthly signature in the Gendarmerie.

February 25, 2013

Mapuche communities demand that the company Forestry Mininco and the Chilean State restore their usurped rights

The company, which has about 700,000 hectares of forest plantations and which occupies a considerable area of ​​ancestral lands claimed by communities and, at the same time, holds in its property important and ancient sacred and ceremonial Mapuche areas, is summoned to restore the rights of communities and end with the displacement of communities due to its expansion.

In the commune of Tirúa, Caleta de Quidico was initiated a recovery process of lands for productive purposes and the community said "We communicate that Forestry Mininco is holding in its hands the farm Labranza, land which is part of what belongs ancestrally to us as Mapuche and to our Mapuche community Maria Colipi widow of Maril, (...) a territory covering about 13 thousand hectares of land ... "The community says that this is reduced to approximately 2000 hectares. Which are occupied by 250 families, "which compose the entire community," they said and added: "So today and from here on, we the new Mapuche generation, raise our voice and start the territorial productive recovery process, because we are living in overcrowded conditions, destined to live in the homes of our parents or grandparents ... "

The Community reported that the territorial recovery process was initiated with the erection of a Rewe on the site, noted as the backbone of the spirituality, "in addition we built a ruka in the territory declared in conflict, for daily work involving land clearing and the beginning of cultivation of this land, which is necessary for growing food for our families ... "

In the initiated process, participate 60 families with women and children and brothers and they anticipate that "the remaining families will join with the advancement of this process, as we are all part of the need to recover our ancient territory ..."

Some of the disputed lands that have come to the public light as part of the historical claims are: 

- Fundo Rukañanco of 300 hectares; La Posada of 200 hectares in Contulmo; Lleu Lleu of 78 hectares;
- In Tirúa: Fundo "Cerro Negro";
Fundo Tirúa Sur of 300 hectares; Fundo El Cardal of 1,600 hectares.;
Property Forestry Mininco of 400.00 hectares.;
- In Collipulli: Fundo Rucañanco of 1,090 hectares;
- In Puren: El Rincón of 590 acres;
- In Victoria:
El Ulmo and El Arco of 200 acres each;
- In Traiguen: El Santa Ana of 440 hectares;
- In Lumaco: El Pichi Cautín;
- In Temuco: El Litre of 106 hectares;
- In New Imperial: El San Alberto;

among several others more, concentrated mostly in the Bio Bio and the Araucania area.

To this background information are added multiple others who have been recorded in recent years and several of them were incorporated into the background information that the Rainforest Alliance consultant observed and in its turn omitted, who, contradicting the FSC values ​​and principles, outrageously awarded the seal with international environmental standard to the company Mininco for their forest plantations over an area of 656,738.2 Hectares of Pinus radiata, Eucalyptus nitens, Eucalyptus globulus, encluding in those areas many lands that are claimed by communities. 

It is noteworthy that several international human rights organizations have referred to the need for policies of redress of lands to communities. A few years ago, the Human Rights Committee of the UN recommended the Chilean state to work on the demarcation of the ancient lands that are claimed. The Governments, however, have denied and systematically violated the Rights of the Lands of the Communities and imposed policies that alter the socio-cultural perspective.

Its controlling group

The company belongs to the group Matte (the siblings Eliodoro, Patricia and Bernard) with a fortune according to Forbes of last year of over U.S. $ 10,400 million dollars mainly obtained through the benefits and privileges granted by the Chilean state, whose base is centered in Pinochet's military dictatorship.
Some of their companies are: CMPC Holding (55.4% ownership): integrated forestry company, producing wood, pulp, paper and other industrial products and consumer goods. Empresas CMPC has a market capitalization of over U.S. $ 7,200 million. Along with cellulose - stationery one of its main businesses is Forestry Mininco. In energy they have Colbún (49% ownership), which is one of the largest power generation companies in Chile, with an installed capacity of 2,521 MW and a market capitalization of approximately U.S. $ 2,600 million. In commercial banking (Banco BICE): Corporate and Commercial Bank of people with assets of approximately U.S. $ 2,700 million, which also has activities of leasing, factoring, mortgage and foreign trade. Also in life insurance, securitization, real estate, investments, among others. 

Sacred Places of the Mapuche people under the control of Forestry Mininco:

The dispute for Justice on the land tenure, has been answered by the company with the foolish positions contrary to the social peace that it proliferates, instead of searching for solutions and peaceful outcomes it has been intervening the public apparatus for the militarization of communities, the enforcement of the Anti-Terrorist Act and criminalization further intensifying the conflicts. Added to this are numerous sacred spaces of the Mapuche people which are in the illegal possession of the company.

The the FSC certifier own consultancy, Rainforest Alliance, registered some of these spaces with the estimated surface about 300 hectares and some of those identified as "sites of significance to indigenous communities" are:

Lil y Elkatuwe Puchacay, Site of Mapuche cultural significance, of a historical ceremonial nature.

Eltun Puchacay, Site of Mapuche cultural significance,, funeral type. It is a family cemetery. Property Puchacay Lot 1.

Futa Mawiza Lolenco, spiritual and ceremonial religious complex. It's a big natural forest. Property Lolenco III.

Trayenko San Ernesto, Site of Mapuche cultural significance of a religious ceremonial nature. They are waterfalls or cascades. Property San Ernesto.

Trawunwe Buenavista. Site of Mapuche cultural significance, of a ceremonial and sociopolitical type. They are peaks or promontories. Buenavista Property 1.

Trayenko Las Praderas, Site of Mapuche cultural significance of a religious ceremonial nature. They are waterfalls or cascades. Property Las Praderas.

In addition to those indicated by the aforementioned consultant, there are several other places of ancestral ceremonial use, of enormous importance to the territorial forces and energies that are located to the interior of the lands of their domain. For example there is the case of Klen Klen, it is a waterfall in the middle of ceremonial field of invocation to the spirit of the waters and the forest that that is located within a tree farm, surrounded by pine trees and with serious damage to the environment in the area of Nahuelbuta, commune of Chol Chol. The same goes for Kuel in Alto Bio Bio, a place in the shape of a hill, pyramidal, identified as an area of ​​energy concentration in the vicinity of Santa Barbara.   

It is noteworthy that the protection of the sacred spaces of the communities is not only covered by the Indigenous Act itself, but also by rules and indigenous rights treaties that are binding to the Chilean state, such as the ILO Convention 169 and the UN Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Just for reference, Article 13 of Convention 169, concerning the protection of sacred sites, which provides that "governments must respect the special importance for the cultures and spiritual values ​​of the peoples concerned and their relationship with the lands and territories they occupy or otherwise use. "And in this regard, in Chile, there are precedents and jurisprudence of courts of appeal, and the Court of Appeals establishes that "there is no doubt that the intervention and destruction of cultural heritage leads to a feeling of lack of respect for their social identity, their customs and traditions."  

At present, various places are claimed by the Communities and the company and the state continue without repairing the enormous damage to the spirituality, culture and lands of the Mapuche people.

February 26, 2013

On Saturday February 23, the Community Maria Colipi widow of Maril entered to recover the Fundo Labranza, Mapuche ancestral territory now in the hands of Forestry Mininco in the area of Quidico, Tirúa commune.

The families began work and live in these lands that were taken from them. These are 1,800 acres of the 13,000 that were part of this community, according to what was reported in a previous statement.

They ask for a dialog with Mininco and this Monday 25 a representative of the company approached the villagers. They caution though, that in any case they have come to stay in their territory.


Today February 25, we have achieved that a representative of the company Mininco forestry, Héctor Cruz, has come to listen to our requests, which are:
1) The total recovery of Fundo Labranza.
2) We will not negotiate our lands.
3) We will not leave until there is a concrete solution.
4) We do not want more militarization within the Territory of the Mapuche Nation.

The representative of the company Mininco forestry asked us two days to get the manager of the company to come to the land in recovery or to say when he will come.
If the manager of Mininco does not come, we, the Mapuche community Maria Colipi the widow of Maril, will continue to work our land to plant and harvest our food.


Nomina of the 28 Mapuche political prisoners imprisoned by the Chilean State

MEANWHILE IN THE CHILE THAT DOES NOT SHOW ON TV... 28 political prisoners are kept by the Chilean State for the Mapuche cause
February 24, 2013
By: Patricia Troncoso, Valentina Fabbri and Rossana Villavicencio

Mapuche political prisoner is every Mapuche detained and/or facing trial, as a result of participating in activities aimed at the reconstruction of the Mapuche People-Nation, understood as such are the process of land reclamation and/or exercising territorial control over recovered properties, resistance actions against police repression and demonstrations aimed at vindicating the Mapuche Political Rights.

This outlines the following circumstances:

1. Resisting the advances of mega projects such as forestry, energy, transport and tourism installed in Mapuche territory, fighting for political and territorial rights of the Mapuche people.

2. As a victim of repression, intimidation and persecution exercised against Mapuche communities and organizations in fight.

3. Exercising their legitimate right to self-defense against the repression of the Chilean state and private sectors.

With the aforementioned criteria, clearly our brothers are not common criminals or offenders as the oppressive state has treated them. On the other hand the political nature of the imprisonments also obeys the laws that are applied to our people, such as the Internal Security Act and the Anti-Terrorism Act, designed in the military dictatorship and legitimized today by the same characters from the government who demanded its repeal in those days. Clearly they are laws seeking the protection and perpetuation in power of capitalist economic groups and the ruling classes which turn to the state to maintain their privileges and domination over both our Mapuche People-Nation and the Chilean people.

Angol Prison

1. - Hector Llaitul Carillanca
2. - Ramon Llanquileo Pilquiman

They have both been on numerous hunger strikes. They belong to the CAM (Coordinator of Communities in Conflict Arauco-Malleco) among the most active organizations in defending the rights of the Mapuche people (whose objective is to recover the territory, autonomy and the reconstruction of the Mapuche world and of self-determination), strongly pursued by the Chilean state since 2002, when many of its activists were arrested during "Operation Paciencia". For both it is the fourth hunger strike. Both Hector and Ramon denounce the double trial, on December 21, the Supreme Court has ratified the decision of the Court of Appeals of Concepción, with respect to the double judgment where the military tribunal of Valdivia acquitted them and the Cañete Criminal Court convicted them for the same facts and the same proofs. Among the numerous allegations against them is that of a terrorist conspiracy. The two prisoners stress that their hands are not stained with blood and that they fight for territory and autonomy for their people.

3. - Daniel Levinao Levinao, 18, ​​of the community Wente Winkul Mapu (commune of Ercilla), is the only political prisoner currently incarcerated in prison of the four young men who in August began a hunger strike that ended after 60 days on October 25, 2012, in which they called in general, for the restitution of the usurped territories, an end to the restitution of the usurped territories, an end to the repression and of the use of the Anti-Terrorism Act, and in particular the cancellation of their trials. Wente Winkul Mapu is one of the communities that are implementing the recovery of lands, both privately owned as from the forestry companies, therefore it is heavily militarized and has suffered several raids from the police, the GOPE (Police Special Operations Group) and PDI (Investigative Police).Daniel also deplores "unfounded prosecutions," the ferocity of the public prosecutor Chamorro and in particular the fact that during the hunger strike, the youths were taken to hospital for medical checks, and from there, without prior notice, they were taken to the prison of Concepción. He had already been convicted for unauthorized use of weapons. The 17th and 18th December Daniel underwent a trial in Angol (in which we were present) for attempted murder of police general Ivan Bezmalinovic, of which he was acquitted for lack of evidence.

4. - Leonardo Quijón Pereira, on hunger strike from November 27 to December 16 with Luís Marileo and G.V. still detained in the prison for minors of Chol Chol, are charged with the murder of a farmer, called a "colonist" by the youths, a common crime of which the youths declare themselves innocent. All three are in custody awaiting trial. To this procedure the Anti-Terrorism Act was not applied, but Leonardo and Luis Marileo (both 20) denounce the ferocity and manipulation of the Prosecutor Luis Chamorro. 
 Leonardo's lawyer requested "house arrest" on December 13 for health reasons and it has not been granted. For this reason, and with the request that the family of the dead farmer remove the accusation of having recognized him among the "hooded" attackers, Leonardo had started another hunger strike, which he later abandoned at the request of his own family, concerned about his health. In 2009, still a minor, he was shot by Chilean police while he was hunting, reporting leg injuries in which he still has close to 200 lead pellets. Then he was arrested, charged and prosecuted by the the Anti-Terrorism Act and acquitted in two trials.

5. - Luis Marileo Cariqueo charged with the murder of a farmer.

6. - Cristian Pablo Levinao Melinao, detained since September 26, he tells us that he comes from the community Mapu Reyen (commune of Ercilla), which for years has maintained a process of land reclamation, and suffers from a strong presence of forestry companies. Cristian has been in jail several times for different charges (eg: the burning of a bus and timber theft of a forestry company, attempted murder of police, arson, assault and threats against farmers). Despite the fact that the Anti-Terrorism Act has never been used, he denounces the persecutory and discriminatory application of the law, and the fury of the Prosecutor towards him, in fact he is now in custody awaiting trial, accused by "protected" witnesses who according to him do not have any proof. He also tells us that he has denounced the fact that in the past there were raids in his home with theft by the PDI, Investigative Police. When they arrested him the last time they mistreated him sticking his head in the water several times to get him to talk. One of the current accusations is of theft and intimidation of a small farmer together with Fernando Millacheo Marin and Guido Bahamondes Gallardo. Cristian and Guido, 28 years old, ask for a speedy, fair and transparent trial.

7.-Fernando Millacheo Marin (26 years) began a hunger strike on December 24, with the request for his release pending trial (preliminary injunction pending trial). He claims to be persecuted by justice just because he has a Mapuche name and that during the investigation an attempt was made to bribe his witnesses, who also had been threatened. Currently he stopped the strike of 59 days and was taken to the infirmary of the prison in Concepción against his will. 

8.-Guido Bahamondez Gallardo. Accused of armed robbery of a small farmer together with Fernando Millacheo and Cristian Levinao. He is 28 years old, he ask for a speedy, fair and transparent trial.

His family confirms that, on the day to which the facts refer of which they accuse him, Bernardo was with them in an initiative for Christmas organized by members of the ADI (Indigenous Development Area), and that the lawyer for the ADI Angelo Sanhuesa testifies that he was present. In his apprehension Bernardo was beaten and wounded together with his father, but that he in particular was kicked, slapped and with the butt of the gun they hit him in the neck.

10. - Jaime Marileo Saravia (36) belonging to the community Cacique José Guiñon. He is charged with armed robbery, a fact that would have occurred in the area of Tricauco.
At the preliminary hearing in Collipulli on the following morning was the Prosecutor Cesar Chivar (substitute of Chamorro, who will follow the case), and the judge ruled the preventive detention awaiting trial. Jaime, defended by the lawyer Nelson Miranda, was transferred to the prison in Angol. The victim and key witness against him is the same as in the past, as a "protected witness"has accused him in the famous "Poluco Pidenco case", in which Jaime was convicted along with other defendants. Jaime says that, in fact, in early February there will be a ruling by the Inter-American Court on this case, which will have a great impact, and that he can not go there because he will be in jail. All this would be a ploy to prevent him from attending the trial.

11. - Jorge Mariman (24) belonging to the community Cacique José Guiñon. He was arrested together with Jaime. He is charged with armed robbery, a fact that would have occurred in the community of Tricauco. Jorge says that around eight o'clock on Saturday arrived at his house three pickup trucks of the PDI, he was working in the fields with his father when he was arrested and handcuffed, he tells us that he was only wearing shorts and they took him like that.

Jorge tells us that all the times that he, from childhood, has suffered from violence by the police, since 2001 there have been more than 30 raids on his house for weapons, but have never been found any, he has been wounded by lead in pellets the back, arm and ankle. He adds that, when they are injured, many Mapuche do not go to the hospital for fear of being denounced immediately or involved in court cases. Jorge has been in prison, and emphasizes that "you come out of jail with a feeling of helplessness and with a lot of anger."
