Prosecutor requests up to 30 years in prison for 3 young Mapuche Political Prisoners from Ercilla, Chile

July 24, 2013

This Wednesday in Collipulli the preparation of the trial for the homicide of settler Aillapán Gallardo was begun, where the Prosecutor accuses Luis Marileo of the community Cacique José Guiñón, Gabriel Valenzuela of the community Wente Winkul Mapu and Leonardo Quijón of the community of Chequenco as authors.

Mapuche leaders and the defense have the antecedents that show that all this happens to be a new setup made against communities that historically have carried out worthy territorial recovery processes.

The communities also repudiate the number of years in prison that the prosecution of Collipulli and the Chilean state is asking for: 25 years for Luis Marileo; 30 for Leonardo Quijón and 10 for Gabriel Valenzuela.

"This shows that this government day after day dedicates itself to criminalize our communities struggle to rebuild our People", said the communities. 

Note: This Monday, July 29, 2013, the trial will start a 9:00 local time in the city of Collipulli
