The Mapuche Territorial Resistance Group Lafkenche Laftraru of the Arauco Malleco Coordinator of Communities in Conflict (CAM) communicate the following to the Mapuche Nation and public opinion:

Kiñe: We claim responsibility for the sabotage against the logging machinery and equipment owned by subcontractors of Mininco Forestry Incorporate within the Estate of Choque, where there was heavy police presence that we confronted.

Epu: The action was carried out in the framework of the just and ancient territorial reclamation by the Choque and Miquihue communities, which have historically taken place in the area. This process of ancient territorial land reclamation incorporates the “El Canelo,” “Puntilla de Ranaquepe,” and “Fundo Choque” estates.

Kula: This action is one of many diverse actions of resistance that the ORT CAM have engaged. We have and will continue to take on national reconstruction and territorial control, fundamental pillars of our Mapuche national liberation project and unrestricted right to rebel against ongoing usurpation and repression.

Meli: Moreover, this action is in response to our permanent compromise in confronting the Capitalist expansion on Mapuche Territory and towards its definitive expulsion. Particularly, against forestry companies and the Chilean State, which grotesquely strengthen this depraving extractive model, through laws such as No 701.

Kechu: Therefore, within this context is our responsibility as ORT CAM to consolidate our political and territorial autonomy as a Nation, through the strengthening of our own processes of self-affirmation and action. In this way ending any type of subordination, dignifying our struggle with political military actions, which allow us to continue our resistance for national liberation. We will continue our struggle unto the depredation and domination.
