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

Environmental Uncertainty

As we enter a new year, British meteorologists are warning us that 2003 is likely to become the hottest year since records began.

As global warming pushes on, we are left wondering what could possibly be in store for us, our children, and future generations.

In this, the first topic of our environmental Discussion Point we ask the following:

"Are you anxious about the future? Do you believe enough is being done to tackle global warming?"
