Mapuche conflict in Río Negro: “May the blood be avenged", warned Facundo Jones Huala

The conflict in Río Negro continues to escalate. After the confrontation in the land seizure in Cuesta del Ternero, where a young Mapuche was killed and another was wounded by a bullet, and the subsequent attacks reported by park rangers in the area, Facundo Jones Huala issued a letter from prison, in which he called to “that the blood be avenged.”

The Mapuche leader, who is imprisoned in Temuco, Chile, released the letter in the last hours, which he entitled “Before the fall of another Peñi who wanted his Free People.”

“Let the actions speak, the weichan will clear the path of opportunists and malicious people, let us not be blinded by anger and sadness, and without confusing the enemy, let us hit accurately where power hurts the most. May our fallen live in the glory of having done (sic) what many only speak, may that fury be transformed into tralka kai kutral, may the word not be twisted and we comply with it, because the Mapuche is of a single Word ” , Jones Huala began, who in December 2018 was sentenced to nine years by the Valdivia Oral Criminal Court for the burning of a property in the Pisu Pisué ranch.

The Mapuche conflict in Río Negro intensified after the serious incidents that occurred in the occupation of the lands of Cuesta del Ternero. There, Elías Garay, a 29-year-old member of the community, died as a result of a gunshot, while Gonzalo Cabrera, another young Mapuche, was wounded by a bullet.

The complete letter from Facundo Jones Huala

Before the fall of another Peñi who wanted his Free People !!

Let actions speak, the weichan will clear the path of opportunists and malicious people, let us not be blinded by anger and sadness, and without confusing the enemy, let us hit accurately where power hurts the most.

May our fallen live in the glory of having done (sic) what many only speak, may that fury be transformed into tralka kai kutral, may the word not be twisted (sic) and we comply with it, because the Mapuche is from a single Word.

May our Peñi come to the kamapu to join the old and new fallen fighters, weichafe kona lonko toki ichrokom Kuifiche iem, and from there they help to clarify our Rakizuam, in a single line, without mixing with other people’s things.

If there is a need to dialogue, let it be among us who are dying in this dignified fight, not with the state or the sold ones who are its sepoys.

We can no longer continue only with stones and sticks, we cannot surrender so easily, and they so calm in the impunity of their system, not only to defend ourselves with what we have at hand, it is time to open up, shield ourselves, deepen sabotage, Recovery Territorial for the Reconstruction and National Liberation Mapuche.

May our Nguillatu be so that our peñi arrives well to meet with the ancients, and so that as the enemy misfires the shots, ours are the ones that hit the target, so that more weichafe will hear the call from the weichan, to that we have clarity when it comes to facing each other.
May his death or any of them be in vain, may the blood be avenged and the land recovered are more than slogans, that the bullets are going to be returned, may it be more than a little song.

Organize our Rebellion and Ancestral Rage, against Capital.

Our Strength is in Our Lof, Self-Defense and Sabotage to big capital …

This is our land and it shelters us, but just as the invaders kill our people, may this be the grave of capitalism!

from Huahuel nieu to Curamapu from Nahuelpan to Zunguncura, wake up Puelmapu and embrace the cause for which our brother fell …

F.F.J.H.
