(en) Anarkismo.net: Chile, Solidaridad* #14 - Mapuche conflict escalates 5 years after the assassination of Matías Catrileo (ca) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 06 Jan 2013 20:38:44 +0200

The Catrileo case, another murder unpunished covered by the State ---- Yesterday, January 3, marked the fifth anniversary of the murder of the young Mapuche Catrileo Matias, occurred in the occupation of the "Fundo Santa Margarita", owned by businessman and landowner Jorge Luchsinger, located in the Vilcún. Shot in the back after receiving three bullets from an Uzi submachine gun, by Corporal Walter Ramirez member of Police Special Operations Group (BEPGs) of Carabineros, Catrileo, went to swell the long list of social activists killed by police since the end of the dictatorship. ---- The investigation of this case was carried out in partial "justice" military. So, as expected, just the 19 August 2012 the Military Court of Valdivia gave judgment: a paltry sentence of 3 years and a day of sorrow sent, ie monthly signature.

Walter Ramirez, even he was discharged, but rather, was deliberately protected by chiefs of police, and was taken active part in various parts of the country.

Because it meant ridicule "condemnation" of the perpetrator of the death of Matthias, is that family Catrileo as organizations and communities in struggle of the Mapuche people, called for the commoner and not to forget the reasons why which the present life. Within this context, it is to be called a national day of action, which echoed in various parts of the country: Valdivia, Aysen, Valparaíso, Concepción, Temuco, Santiago, were just some of the places where they held marches , velatones, acts, which often led to violent confrontations with police.

Another long hunger strike ...

Framed in the intensive campaign of repression and criminalization of actions and resistance of the Mapuche struggle for self-determination and territory has sipo promoted by the Chilean state institutions (in legal, police, etc.) In collaboration with employers local agricultural and wood, and the mainstream media, is that at present there are multiple found Mapuche prisoners detained in various prisons in the Araucanía, accused of crimes of a "terrorist."

Two of these political prisons, Hector and Ramon Llaitul Llanquileo, both members of the Coordinadora Arauco Malleco (CAM) and sentenced to long terms, they run from Nov. 14 on a hunger strike to demand better prison conditions, the eligible prison benefits they are entitled to by law (output Llanquileo weekend), the payment of four years of detention and punishment of Llaitul, freedom of the Mapuche political prisoners, including specific claims. So far, the government has turned a deaf ear and have ignored the issue. After over 50 days of fasting, the villagers have said they are determined to get to the end if necessary.

Arson attack cost the lives of two powerful family members

During the early morning hours today, Jan. 4, was a fact that undoubtedly change many things in the Mapuche, the arson attack to "Fundo Lumahue", in which deaths were the result of calling the landowner Luchsinger and Werner Vivianne wife Mckay. Werner was a cousin of Jorge Luchsinger, owner of the farm where he was killed Matías Catrileo 5 years ago.

According to police estimates, between 10 and 20 were the strangers who set fire to the main house and then fled the scene in different directions. The action would be framed within the call for mobilization on the anniversary of the assassination of Matías Catrileo because leaflets were found Mapuche alluded to by the house in ruins.

Two suspects were apprehended by police in the vicinity of the place, one of whom managed to escape, after a brief firefight. However, it suffered the same fate the Mapuche Cerafín Celestino Cordova Transit machi respected and recognized member of a community of Yeupeko, which borders the infamous "Fundo Santa Margarita". The commoner arrested, was shot in the chest, which corresponds to a 22 caliber gun that is compatible with the property of the deceased revolver farmer. Celestino Cordova is currently incommunicado and must wait 7 days until the prosecution of Temuco define which crimes imputed; fire resulting in death or fire straight murder, both under the Terrorism Act.

The government has already begun to implement "tough" in struggling communities

Immediately after the incident in the "Fundo Lumahue", deployed a massive police operation to find those responsible. With this justification have been searched with extreme violence several Mapuche communities located in the Cautín and especially in the town of Tres Cerros Yeupeko; Juan Catrilaf Community, Community Yeupeko Katrileo, Juan Quintrupil Community, among others. In many of these places, there have been clashes between villagers and special forces trying to enter at all costs to communities.

President Sebastian Pinera himself went quickly to the Araucanía Region to reassure the local business community has been shocked by the death of two of their own. Several business associations, such as the National Agricultural Society (SNA), the Chilean Wood Corporation (CORMA), and even the Internet Corporation for Production and Commerce (CPC) has asked the government to mobilize all elements necessary to end the "guerrilla" in the area, and some have argued that it is necessary to declare a state of siege. Piñera said that "this government will work together to combat terrorism that is affecting the area. Let's apply without contemplation full force of the law " . This line has publicly announced increased permanent police manning the "red zone" of the conflict to be around 400 troops, increasing armor and infrastructure, creating a unique unit to combat terrorism, the implementation of a "zone of control and security" (with permanent control vehicular and identity), the formation of a legal team and an exclusive exclusive Public Ministry prosecutor for this case (Ljubetic Francisco ) and also ask the National Intelligence Agency (ANI), to intensify their work in the background Wallmapu to deliver as soon as possible to disrupt the Mapuche resistance.
