Pointed out from the Community on the proximity to Temuco-Metrenco, on the
Araucanian region, that they didn’t explain the reason of their violent action and
just simply searched everything, more likely “looking” probes to incriminate the
youth of the sector. “THEY REACHED TO REGISTER THREE HOUSES, until the weichafe
(warriors) of the community realized about the agression, they meet to make front to
the repression, what did produced a strong confrontation for around half hour, until
they managed to throw out the repressive forces”, they indicated.

again to the mapuche families, for the only fact of defending their rights”, they
mentioned.

soon there will have a raid, but the weichafe already have met and have manifestated
that they will not allow any kind of agression to their families and they will
resisst in any manner way or form to the occupation forces of the oppressor state”.

“We declared as XAPILWE and MAWIZACHE that this terrorists attacks of the chilean
state against our people are directed to intimidate us to avoid that we keep in the
worthy struggle for our rights and to stop our resistance against the airport in our
territory”, they declared.

They finished pointing out that “they are trying to fabricate probes for their set
ups and so criminalize our struggle, they are starting a persecution against our
leaders and our youths that have commited themselves on the struggle for the
reconstruction of our mapuche nation, and that they demand the rights that are
refused to us by this invasor state”, reported from this territory who actively
have been oppossing to the imposition of an airport project, besides of claiming the
