EMERGENCY PUBLIC CALL-OUT! RECALLED for Monday, May 30th! PROTEST FOR MAPUCHE POLITICAL PRISONERS on a 75+ Day Hunger Strike

by WCCC


The Women’s Coordinating Committee for Free Wallmapu [Toronto] is calling to ALL anti-authoritarian/anti-colonial/anti-capitalist organizations and allies in major cities across Klanada FOR EMERGENCY RALLIES @ THE CHILEAN CONSULATES IN TORONTO, VANCOUVER, & MONTREAL ON MONDAY, MAY 30TH, 2011 protesting for the Freedom of Mapuche Political Prisoners on a 75+ Days Hunger Strike.Our four brothers have been hospitalized in serious condition and are in an abysmal state of health, SO It is IMPERATIVE TO MANIFEST OUR SUPPORT FOR OUR BROTHERS WHO ARE DYING ON HUNGER STRIKE.

Our four Mapuche Brothers, Hector Llaitul, Ramon Llanquileo, Jose Hueneche, and Jonathan Huillical have been enduring a 75+ Day Hunger Strike, since March 15th, 2011, in protest of the 20 and 25 year convictions they have received in fixed and corrupt trials featuring faceless witnesses under the Pinochet era Antiterrorist Law. They are being criminalized for resisting a raid ordered by State prosecutor, Mario Elgueta, who was trained in counterinsurgency tactics by the FBI, CSIS and other intelligence organizations, for simple fact of defending and reclaiming their ancient territory.
 

Their demands are the following:
· A fair and just trial
· No use of secret witnesses or use of the Antiterrorist Law
· Nullify the judicial hearings
· To be judged by competent and impartial courts
 

****TORONTO*** JOIN US ON THE NORTH WEST CORNER OF YONGE AND BLOOR ON MONDAY, MAY 30TH @ 5PM TO PROTEST TO SUPPORT OUR MAPUCHE BROTHERS ON HUNGER STRIKE!

We also wish to extend our solidarity with our sisters and brothers at the recent Six Nations Youth Occupation of the old police station in Oshweken, in the ongoing reclamation of territory and identity as sovereign peoples.

IF ONE PERSON IS CONDEMNED THEN WE ARE ALL CONDEMNED
NO ONE IS FREE UNTIL EVERY PERSON IS FREE
