The Autonomous Mapuche Community of Temucuicui informs that the trial against our Werken [Spokesperson] Vania Queipul has finalized. She was accused of public mischief the day that Piñera and his political, media and repressive entourage came to our Territory in October of last year.
Our Werken, the daughter of Lonko [Chief] Victor Queipul, who has been exposed to repression and political persecution since her infancy, was found guilty of the charges against her.
The sentencing date is set for next week, exact day to be confirmed.
We reject this entire scenario of criminalization against those who defend the rights of our Mapuche People in our Wallmapuche (Ancestral Territory).
