Wales supports the Mapuche - Chile stop the Repression

The Aflonyddwch Mawr protests the repression of the Mapuche by the Chilean Government

Santiago: Thousands of people gathered  in the Plaza Italia to march through the Alameda in support of the Mapuche resistance.
The march also coincided with the anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus in Chile – a day that indigenous communities do not think should be celebrated as a holiday.
The march ended in a violent police repression.

The demonstration was called by leaders of groups in conflict zones such as Maule, Arauco and Osorno. The main demands of the marchers were the end to the militarization of their territory, to stop the criminalization of the Mapuche movement and freedom of Mapuche political prisoners.
