IMMEDIATE FREEDOM FROM OUR PARTNER NICOLÁS DE ANTUENO! HIGH TO THE REPRESSION OF THE ARGENTINE STATE AGAINST MAPUCHE PEOPLE!

Today, a solidarity protest was held in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina for the liberation of the Mapuche people in prison, in which seven activists were arrested, including Nicolás de Antueno, our militant, companion and libertarian writer. He is now in the Argerich Hospital after a police attack against him. The protest is specifically aimed at denouncing the systematic criminalization of lonko Facundo Jones Huala, who was arrested a week ago for the second time by the Argentine State, in order to slow down the processes of territorial recovery and autonomy in the Mapuche communities that he strongly encourages, with great advance in the communal expropriation of the lands of Lof in resistance of Vuelta del Rio of the locality of Cushamen, ‘property’ of the transnational Benetton.

To repress the demonstration, Mauricio Macri’s government ordered the City Police to violently disperse the place, beating and insulting the demonstrators present, wounding the face and body of our colleague Nicolás de Antueno.

The seven detainees (Rafael Di Paola, Roxana Dictan, Suyai Fleitas, Nicolás Rivero, Lázaro Spezzi, Claudio Contreras and Nicolás De Antueno) are charged with “possible federal charges” so their case is being taken by the Judge Maria Servini. The charges are: resistance to authority, public intimidation and injuries.

We call on all comrades in Argentina and the world to press for the support of the following government agencies and / or by calling this number to demand their speedy release:

– Police Station # 30: Address California 1801-1899, Tel. 011 4302-0345.

– Commune 4: Address Dr. Professor Pedro Chutro 2902-2928 (esq. Zavaleta), Tel. 011 5091 6100

HIGH UPON THE WAR AGAINST THE MAPUCHE PEOPLE AND WHO SUPPORT IT! IMMEDIATE FREEDOM TO THE SEVEN PRISIONERS!
