Mapuche, Revolutionary & Anti-Colonial Struggle in so-called Chile since 1973
The Women’s Coordinating Committee for a Free Wallmapu, will speak on the significance of the last 40 years of revolutionary and anti-colonial struggle in Wallmapu (Mapuche territory), Chile, and beyond the Andes. This September 11th marks the 40th anniversary of the Coup d’état in Chile and with it the memory of a brutal dictatorship, the commemoration of the many thousands of missing, murdered and exiled victims by the Chilean State, with the implementation of the Shock Doctrine known as the neoliberal economic model we live in today. However, the victims of State repression go far beyond the period of the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile. We must also recognize the ongoing plunder and criminalization of the most marginalized sectors of our society by those in power, the later hunt for the revolutionary movements that were born in response to these injustices, and especially the ongoing genocide of indigenous peoples on their ancient territory.The WCCC [Toronto] is an indigenous Mapuche grassroots organization based in Toronto, Turtle Island. Our goal is to link the struggles of indigenous sovereignty (specifically the Mapuche Peoples of so-called southern $hile) with that of other indigenous, anti-capitalist/anti-colonial, community based struggles across Turtle Island, by creating awareness through events, protests, publications, etc….
Including Mapuche Short Docs & MORE…
Republican Political Prisoners/POWs in Today’s Ireland
Brendan Casey will speak on the conditions of Irish Prisoners of War (POWs) and the current human rights situation in Northern Ireland. Born into a staunchly Republican family where a significant number of his elders were either POWs or ex-POWs, he has been involved all his adult life in raising funds and publicizing the plight of the POWs. The hunger strikes left a lasting impact on him. He was the chairman of the Ballyshannon Bundoran hunger strike march for a number of years and now classes himself as an independent socialist Republican.
In this capacity he has been traveling throughout Canada, as well as to other countries, to try to give people a true picture of the POW situation in Ireland.
SPECIAL MESSAGE from MARTIN RAFFERTY, a former POW and member of the Belfast 32 County Sovereignty Movement. 32CSM is a political movement that is fighting against the current occupation of the Six Counties of Northern Ireland
