Event Type Speaker
Carolina Dutton and Dale Sorensen were part of a Task Force/SOA Watch delegation to Chile. On October 12th (Indigenous people’s Day) they participated in a march for indigenous rights in Santiago Chile. The focus of the march was to call out for an end to the repression, exploitation, racism and degradation of the ancestral land belonging to the Indigenous nations of Chile. The largest is the Mapuche nation, close to 10% of the Chilean population. The delegation traveled south to the region where one half of the Mapuche population resides. It was here that they were able to visit political prisoners and witnessed firsthand the repression of the Mapuche by the Chilean government who accuse them of “terrorism” when they try and take back their lands that have been stolen by the Chilean government and big logging corporations. The program includes a video, “The Voice of the Mapuche,” slides and an exhibit of drawings by a very special political prisoner, Juana Culfunao. $10-20 donation requested; a benefit for purchase of video equipment to document human rights violations by police during raids of Mapuche communities.
