On the 10th Anniversary of the murder of our son and Weichafe [Warrior] Alex Lemun Saavedra on November 12th, 2002, the family communicates the following to National and International Opinion:
We deeply lament and denounce that after 10 years of this deplorable crime, there has still been no justice for Alex’s murderer, Officer Marcos Aurelio Treuer of the Chilean National Police Force, whom remains free and carrying out his functions as an officer, demonstrating that crimes against humanity by the police force are still being carried out in Chile.
This Saturday and Sunday November 10th and 11th we will carry out a Guillatun [Ceremony] in his memory, with the communities of Malleco as well as other territories.
We reaffirm our compromise with the struggle for the rights of the Mapuche People, as with the restitution of all usurped territories.
We demand an end to the militarization and criminalization by the government in turn against our communities demanding our lands, in the same way that we demand the freedom of all Weichafe [Warriors] and Mapuche Political Prisoners that are held in the prisons of the Chilean State.
