Mapuche Political Prisoners of Angol Prison
We communicate the following to local and national public opinion:
During the day of Friday, May 6, 2017, the gendarmerie of the prison informed us verbally that a Jesuit commission from the Catholic Church in Cañete will be attending Angol prison from May to December of this year during visiting hours for solidarity meetings with MPPs (Mapuche Political Prisoners).
Not accepting this Jesuit commission, we are presenting our rejection by means of writing this statement to make it clear that all of the instructions that the gendarmerie are attempting to impose on the MPPs WILL NOT BE LISTENED TO LET ALONE CARRIED OUT, BECAUSE WE DO NOT TAKE HEED OF RULES OUTSIDE OF CONTEXTS.
The Catholic Church subdued and enslaved our ancestors during Spanish colonization and said that Indigenous people didn’t have any ‘souls’, we will never forget this.
At present they are complicit in the terrorism of the Chilean State, they built an Agricultural Technical School in Pailahueke on route 5 south 596 and now they have turned it into a militarized police base to persecute the Mapuche.
The Mapuche people are the ‘Moral Reserve’, so we call on the Chilean State and the Catholic Church to respect our Mapuche Cosmovisión.
