The Daily Police Harassment in Wente Winkul Mapu
October 26th, 2012
After the favourable decision by the Chilean Justice System on the Mapuche Political Prisoners and latter end of the hunger strike, the Wente Winkul Mapu Community was returning to their homes when they were detained by police.
This kind of police brutality can be seen daily in the communities that can be seen in this video. It was in the railroad crossing in Pidima, where GOPE riot and Special Force police interrupted the flow of traffic with the excuse of “vehicle control,” demanding identification.
In the end, the documents that they asked for had no importance, and let people through because they had already managed to implement yet another act of harassment.
