Mapuche Communities in Resistance of Malleco shall exercise self-defense and, in their own way, do the justice which the State denies them, Chile

August 7, 2013


To the national and
international public opinion, to our Mapuche Nation, we, the Communities in Resistance of Malleco, declare the following:

Kiñe: In response to the treacherous murder of our peñi Rodrigo Melinao Lican by the hands of the State's security forces, we demand the government to assume its responsibility for the death of this young family man of the
Community Rayen Mapu, who leaves behind him three little children and one about to be born, in absolute helplessness.

Epu: This cowardly murder is but the result of the militarization of our territory, which we have been denouncing and have not been heard. The same Special Rapporteur of the United Nations, in a recent visit to Chile and the Mapuche people, said that the levels of repression against communities is unsustainable and therefore the actions we forward towards the protection of our children, women and the elderly are justified.
Küla: Given all the above, we present an ultimatum to the Chilean State, represented by
the current government: We demand the immediate demilitarization of our territory, the withdrawal of the heavy contingent of Military Police that has us under a state of siege; and the devolution of our territories, usurped by the forestry companies and large landowners.

Meli: In case of not receiving an appropriate response to this ultimatum, in the shortest term, we,
the Communities in Resistance of Malleco, will feel forced to obliged to exercise our self-defense, and to do, by our own means, the justice the State is denying us.

¡¡¡Peñi Rodrigo Melinao, your death shall not be in vain!!!
the militarization of Wallmapu!!!
¡¡¡Freedom to all Mapuche Political Prisoners!!!
¡¡¡If the Wingka (invader) State doesn't do justice, we shall exercise Mapuche justice!!!
