Protest the Chilean Consulate! Free the Mapuche Political Prisoners
Free The Mapuche Political Prisoners!
Protest the Chilean Consulate!!!
Tues. Jan. 29th, 2008 10am!
For 500 years, The Mapuche have resisted the colonial oppressors. Whether, Spain or Argentina or Chile the history of this proud nation has been one of resistance and struggle. Under Pinochet, the Chilean government enacted terrorism laws against some forms of dissent and protest.
Much like our incarcerated freedom fighters here in the United States,
the Mapuche have fallen victim to these laws, laws similar to the current "Anti -Terror" initiatives being practiced and implemented here. Political Prisoner Patricia Troncoso has been on a hunger strike for 105 days in protest of her incarceration and of these "anti-terror" laws.
REMEMBER MATIAS CATRILEO!!!
