The following video documents the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado in Argentina, as well as ongoing resistance of Mapuche communities.
This video was made one month after the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado in the hands of Gendarmería Argentina. The lifeless body of Santiago was “found” on October 17 -78 days after his disappearance-in the Chubut River 300 meters upstream from the place where he was seen captured by Gendarmería, and in an area that had been raked in different occasions by those who carried out their search. Facundo Jones Huala is still detained awaiting trial for extradition to Chile.
The persecution and repression of Mapuche communities in resistance continue to grow, while in the region dominated by the Chilean state the political prisoners reach thirty. On November 25, 2017, in the territorial recovery of the Lafken Winkul Mapu community, in the vicinity of Villa Mascardi, Río Negro, Rafael Nahuel was shot dead in the back in an attempted eviction by the Argentine Naval Prefecture. Santiago Maldonado and Rafael Nahuel live in the struggle!
Freedom to Facundo Jones Huala!
Terrorist is the State!
