Stop the Exploitation of Mapuche Ancestral Territory

In the past five years, tension has grown between the interests of indigenous communities and multinational companies in the ancestral territory of the Mapuche people; an area located between Southern Chile and Argentina.

The government policies of these two countries have involved the torture, murder and systematic persecution of Mapuche people campaigning to regain their land.

Far from attempting to bring justice and stability to the region, the Chilean and Argentine governments have welcomed and encouraged multinational companies to exploit the natural resources, without any consideration for the sustainability of the environment or the welfare of the indigenous population.

In this Discussion Point, MIL welcomes any suggestions which could bring about a peaceful resolution to this conflict.

Doctors have many challenges to face as they are perennially surrounded by patients, diseases, hospital duties and over-extended or odd shift timings. Universally, doctor is considered to be a noble profession and respectable one at that, but a doctor also has to work under immense pressures, emotional strains and other physical challenges. A regular physician like most of us at some point face will have to deal with personal situations such as important family affairs, family holidays, sickness or pregnancy that may force them to abandon medical duties. At the same time, a hospital or a healthcare facility is also constantly faced with emergency situations that demand all hands on deck round-the-clock. Therefore, every hospital, clinic or nursing home is compelled to hire locum tenens or substitute doctor in order to keep the staffing under control at all times. In fact, locum doctors are the most valuable asset for the medical community because they provide quality medical care and act as a helping-hand in emergency situations when the medical facilities need them the most. Unlike regular or permanent doctors, locum doctor jobs are also ideal career options for medical interns and graduates because they offer a wide array of medical exposure in varied medical specialties, work cultures and healthcare systems. Locum jobs are challenging and flexible, thus an increasing number of medical professionals have benefitted from these jobs, so whether one is looking for a family physicians position or in a hospital or in a clinic, locum jobs for doctors are available at all levels and in different healthcare systems. In addition, being a locum doctor gives a medical professional the control over their working hours, location of work and choice of area of specialisation. Technically, locum positions are not restricted to general physicians but they are also extended to other fields of medical specialisations such as cardiology, neurology and many more. Travelling can be an integral part of locum jobs, and these distinctive features are a boon for many dedicated medical professionals who are eager to expand their medical careers with loads of multi-cultural medical experiences. The fact that locum agencies in the UK recruit tens of thousands of locums from across the globe in various NHS hospitals, private clinics, nursing homes and other public hospitals speaks volume of the popularity of locum jobs. Locating or getting a locum tenens job is a simple task as long as you are registered with one of the many reputable locum agencies. These agencies act as the middle man between locum tenens and medical facilities, and they also look after all the details pertaining to travel for locum tenens, accommodation and the nature of locum work. Thus, maintaining a healthy locum doctor-agency relationship benefits both the parties, and it also increases the probability of getting recommendable employment opportunities and businesses or vice-versa.

¡Hola! Me gusta saber todo lo que posible de los Mapuches. Me fasina la cultura. Estoy haciendo un proyecto sobre los Mapuches. Y mi padre chileno (estoy una estudiante intercambio) no le gusta. ¿Por Que? Los Mapuches tienen una cultura bonita y incredible en mis propias ojos. Muchas gracias. ¡Suerte para todo! Con Cariño, Kelsey

I am forced today to inform myself about the topic "indigous people of Southamerica" because it's my final test topic. I'm a grafic student in Lower Austria and we have to plan such a rescue project. But I must say, that I haven't heard of the Mapuche bevore. So, doesn't that show, that there is much too little done for the Mapuche? The first thing of all to help other people is to make them known. So I think they should be shown to everyone in posters, flyers, intenet banners... Can u tell me any organisation in Austria who has to do with the Mapuche?

I'd like to know about practical ways I can help with this. I recently lived in spain, and the only energy company to provide for my area was Fecsa Endesa, which is the same one currently liable for a lot of the problems to do with exploitation, at least in Chile. So how could I help? I'm not their customer anymiore, but I've thought that because of the bureocratic way these organisations are run, it's better if they see complaints or actions "closer to home" - ie, in spain, from spaniards. And I have some friends in spain, customers of Endesa, who might be willing to take part in similar actions. But where to start?

It is an outrage what the indigenous populations of these two countries have had to suffer these five years whilst there governments look on indifferently. More must be done to see to it that this situation cannot possibly continue. Boycott the multinationalists behind such outrage before their arm grows too long!
