31 Mapuche Political Prisoners on 20+ Day Hunger Strike - Call to Protest!

For the Freedom of the Mapuche Political Prisoners, Non-Mapuche Political Prisoners in Chile and the Toronto G20 Arrestees

by WCCC

Mapuche Rally - August 12 @ 5PM
Mapuche Rally - August 12 @ 5PM
The Mapuche Political Prisoners across so-called southern Chile have undertaken a liquid hunger strike throughout the country which began on July 12th, 2010, in El Manzano Prison demanding the immediate release of ALL Mapuche Political Prisoners, the Abolition of Military Courts, and the Abolition of the Anti-Terrorist Law.
 
As of Wednesday, July 28th, 31 Mapuche Political Prisoners have joined the call out in the prisons of Concepcion, Temuco, Angol, Valdivia, and Lebu, with the support of various Mapuche communities in struggle including the Communities of Rankilko, Newen Mapu, and Juana Millahual to name a few...
 
The murderous legacy of the Lagos and Bachelet Chilean governments has kept the Criminalization of the Mapuche struggle for autonomy, the implementation of the Antiterrorist Law, the double-jeopardy of Military courts and the use of police set-ups into the current Piñera administration, which further seeks to plunder and repression of our people. All of this during the year of Chile’s 200th Year of Independence, taking place on September 18th, 2010, which has represented the ongoing genocide of our people.
 
The situation is URGENT as the health of our Mapuche Brothers is rapidly deteriorating...
 
 As the Women’s Coordinating Committee Chile-Canada [Toronto], we fully support the efforts of our Mapuche brothers and sisters in their just struggle for their liberation. Therefore WE CALL OUT ON ALL INDIGENOUS AND ANTI-COLONIAL Activists/Supporters to SHOW THEIR SOLIDARITY TO THE CAUSE OF INDIGENOUS SOVEREIGNTY and Join us in Protest!
 
PROTEST FOR THE LIBERATION OF THE MAPUCHE POLITICAL PRISONERS!
THURSDAY, AUGUST 12TH – 5 to 7PM
@ THE TORONTO CHILEAN CONSULATE
2 BLOOR STREET WEST
 
Freedom for the Mapuche Political Prisoners Resisting on Hunger Strike to State Terrorism!
