Wallmapu: 47 Logging Trucks Destroyed as The Trial of 10 Mapuche Political Prisoners Begins


During the night of August 19, 18 logging trucks burned in Wallmapu. The action this time was claimed by the Mapuche group Weichan Auka Mapu in solidarity with the 10 Mapuche Political Prisoners that faced trial the next day.

The torched trucks were still smoking when a strong security presence was put into operation at the court of Temuco to begin the great judicial theater. The aim is to use the anti-terrorist law to condemn the incendiary attack that caused the death of the landowner Luchsinger Mackay on January 4th, 2013.

Those charged under the anti-terrorist are: José Tralcal Coche, Juan Segundo Tralcal Coche, Juan Segundo Tralcal Quidel, Luis Sergio Tralcal Quidel, José Arturo Córdoba Tránsito, Aurelio Catrilaf Parra, Eliseo Catrilaf Romero, Sergio Catrilaf Marilef, Sabino Catrilef Quidel and Francisca Linconao.

During the first week of trial, a new attack again ignited the capitalist interests in Wallmapu. 29 trucks were burnt to the ground. Leaflets left in the sector clarified the authorship and intentions of the massive attack: “No to the Luchsinger Mackay set-up. Freedom to all Mapuche Political Prisoners! Fire and sabotage to the forest industry”.

It is expected that the inquisitorial process will last for a couple of months.

Solidarity with the Mapuche Political Prisoners!

Down with all the prisons!
