(en) [Argentina] Mural painted by Santiago Maldonado will be placed in the Faculty of Fine Arts of La Plata By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 20 Jul 2018 09:25:26 +0300

Press release: ---- On completing one year of his forced disappearance followed by death ---- Santiago returns to Fine Arts ---- The Santiago Maldonado Solidarity Committee will carry out the placement of the last mural painted by Santiago in La Plata. Will be placed in the courtyard of the Faculty of Fine Arts, diagonal 78 Nº 680. ---- On Friday, August 3 at 5:00 p.m. , together with his family and friends, human rights organizations and social organizations, we will present the mural he painted at the Anulquist Guliay Polié Library in the city of La Plata. ---- Santiago Maldonado, the Lettuce , was disappeared by the Argentine state on August 1, 2017, after a brutal repression of the gendarmerie inside Pu Lof in Cushamen Resistance (Chubut). The repressive operation of the Macri government was in charge of the Minister of Security Patricia Bullrich and his Chief of Staff Pablo Noceti. After 79 days Santiago was found dead.

The Lettuce , was an anarchist militant companion, committed to social transformation, who manifested organized solidarity with the popular struggles. Santiago, was 28 years old and was from the village of May 25. Since childhood he has been very curious about art, and because of these concerns, when he turned 18, he moved to La Plata to study Fine Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts of UNLP, and went on to design, illustration, painting and tattooing. In addition, it developed a great artistic and militant activity, leaving its marks shaped in different places.

He participated actively in the Anarchist Library Guliay Polié , where he militated and praised the ideas of the libertarian camp, in which he believed and for which he ended up giving his life. There, on one of the walls, he left one of his murals.

The Library was located in the historic home of Rodolfo González Pacheco's family (anarchist playwright, contributor to the daily La Protesta , and founder of the newspaper La Antorcha ). After 10 years of activity it was closed in 2017 for its demolition. So from the Committee we decided that this mural should be preserved and collectivized as part of the recovery of the memory and the struggle of the companion.

We are waiting for you on Friday, August 3, at the auditorium of the Faculty of Fine Arts to accompany Maldonado's relatives and learn about the art of Santiago.
