CAM PUBLIC COMMUNIQUE: Unto the Death of Peasant Osvaldo Zapata

TVN Miente - informe especial 'zona roja'Unto the information given out through the mass media relating to the death of Osvaldo Aliro Zapa Gutierrez, 54 year old peasant in the area of Antiquina, 28 km away from Cañete, we wish to inform our Mapuche Nation, Ta Iñ Peñi Ka Lamnien, to public Chilean and International opinion the following:

Kiñe: That the various actions carried out by the Territorial Resistance Groups of the CAM (ORT_CAM) in our Wallmapu have a common enemy: Capitalism, and have a clear objective – to stop its advancement into Mapuche Territory, in the Lafkenche area in the province of Arauco and in particular against Forestry companies (Mininco, Volterra, etc) and its expressions of investment and ursurpation.

Epu: A Chilean peasant is not, nor will ever be targeted by the ORT–CAM. Moreover, we consider this to be a sector that is also oppressed by the dominating political/economic system; therefore we have a common enemy. Additionally, as Pu Weichafe [Warriors] of our nation, we carry a political ethic of Weichan [War], or of struggle, therefore we do not have a line of indiscriminate confrontation against the peasantry and farmers; we are unconditionally against it.  We do not attack the weakest even if they are on Mapuche Territory.

Kula: Therefore we outright reject the insinuation of the mass media, including but limited to TVN, BIO BIO LA RADIO, LA NACION and EMOL, in trying to link the death of Mr. Osvaldo Zapata with the CAM and with its ORT. We state that this is an isolated incident and has no relation with our processes of reclamation and struggle.

Meli: Finally in addition, the actions of resistance against forestry companies, are in support of our Pu Weichafe {Warriors] that are on their 37th Day on Hunger Strike.
