Some 40 people with their faces hidden behind masks attacked with fire weapons the machines at an illegal logging camp of the company Minico in Mapuche territory. Later they were involved a shooting with police forces in charge of the protection of the camp. The inccident ended, like in previous occasions, without any arrests.
In spite of the growing activism of the Mapuche people for the recovery of their lands and dignity, the pseudo-leftist government of Bachelet has not just ignored their demands but persisted with the same arrogant attitude of aggresion as before, accusing the activists of "terrorism" and applying against them laws issued under the fascist regime of Pinochet.
