I Jaime Marileo Saravia, of the Mapuche community in resistance Boyen Mapu in Ercilla, declare to the Mapuche nation and the national and international public opinion, the following:
On Tuesday January 14, 2014, starts the trial where I am unjustly accused of armed robbery, as a new setup which was created by the Anti-Mapuche Fiscal Luis Chamorro, where the Administration and the Government of the Region IX have adhered without any evidence that truly accuses me of the facts.
I denounce that this accusation which falls down on me, is nothing more than a political persecution by the Chilean government and the big businessmen of this country, in response to my decision that I have taken as Mapuche to fight for the liberation of our territory from landowners and international corporations.
For the foregoing reasons, I call on the Mapuche people and social organizations, and on those who believe that the struggle of the Mapuche people for the recovery of the water and the territory is not something that concerns only to us, to join me on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at 9.00 hrs. in the Oral Criminal Court of Angol, to see together how the setups created by the prosecution fall to pieces again.
FREEDOM TO ALL MAPUCHE POLITICAL PRISONERS
JAIME MARILEO SARAVIA
