To the Mapuche People-Nation
To the Public
The Lof Madilhue and the Arauco Malleco Coordinator (CAM) inform the following:
Kiñe: Today April 29, the Lof Madilhue of the district of Lumaco began a new process of territorial recuperation in the 450-hectare Lumaco country estate, supposedly belonging to Forestal Mininco. In addition, we are claiming the 67-hectare estate of El Laurel, the 50-hectare estate of El León, and the Las Huellas estate of more than 1000 hectares, all belonging to Forestal Mininco.
Epu: This new territorial recuperation has the unrestricted support of the Arauco Malleco Coordinator (CAM) and of the communities in resistance in the region. It will be based on the strategies of resistance and reconstruction of our Mapuche people. Therefore, from now on we will begin to exercise territorial control and the necessary actions with all the Mapuche newen (energy) for the definitive recuperation of this part of Wallmapu. We will begin forest recovery work, cleaning and planting, construction of rukas (traditional Mapuche housing), and the repositioning of our sacred spaces.
Kula: We call on all our Mapuche people-nation, principally the territories in struggle and communities in resistance, to be attentive and in combative disposition to support and accompany this new territorial and political struggle.
With Toño Marchant, Matias Catrileo, and Alex Lemun, we will continue to struggle head on against the forestry companies in our ancestral territory.
For territory and autonomy. Always!
Amulepe taiñ weichan!!
