Supporting Mapuche International
Mapuche International Link (MIL) is an international voluntary movement
of people who campaign for social, economic, political and environmental
justice for the indigenous Mapuche peoples of Chile and Argentina.
MIL was established in the UK in 1996 and
is now supported by members in all corners of the world who share
a common concern for the plight of the indigenous Mapuche nation.
Our work would not be possible without the support and dedication
of the volunteers who are helping to bring about a just and peaceful
resolution to the Mapuche conflict.
If you would like to support our work, there
exist a diverse range of exciting opportunities, regardless of where
you are based. All positions require a genuine interest in human
rights, the environment and social justice.
Interest in the Mapuche conflict is growing worldwide and it is
imperative we continue to develop this interest further and bring
pressure to bear upon the powerful institutions in the decision-making
Subsequently, MIL is always seeking the support
of individuals capable of influencing:
- Politicians (worldwide)
- Governments (worldwide)
- International institutions (such as the
United Nations and the European Union)
- N.G.O.'s (especially human rights and
- The media (especially mainstream media)
Previous experience of lobbying/campaigning
is helpful but not essential for these positions. If you believe
you have the skills--and the tenacity--to lobby and campaign for
positive change then we would like to hear from you.
MIL is constantly seeking to improve the design, content and accessibility
of our websites.
The German language version of the MIL web-site
was recently developed thanks to the dedication of a German student
visiting the UK and we are now seeking to develop a French language
version of the MIL web-site. Knowledge of Dreamweaver is desirable
but basic training can be provided if necessary. Fluency in French
and a good knowledge of English or Spanish is essential. If you
can help then we would like to hear from you.
In addition, we urgently need individuals
to help maintain and develop the English, German and Spanish language
versions of the MIL website. A knowledge of Dreamweaver is desirable
but basic training can be provided. Fluency in one of these languages
and a working knowledge of another is essential. If you can help
then we would like to hear from you.
We are always seeking the support of individuals capable of translating
news and other information from:
- Spanish into English
- Spanish into German
- Spanish into French
- English into German
- French into English
Much of the information we provide is time-sensitive
so we operate a pool of translators who can be called upon on either
on a regular or ad hoc basis as suits each individual. If you can
help then we would like to hear from you.
MIL is a voluntary organisation and relies upon donations for the
continuation of our work. We are always seeking individuals to help
MIL raise additional funds. If you are able to help or if you would
like to make a donation then we would like to hear from you.
MIL is seeking consultative status with the United Nations Economic
and Social Council (ECOSOC). As a part of this process we are required
to submit numerous application forms and a written 'Statute' or
'Constitution'. If you believe you can help our submission or if
you can help us to draft a formal 'Statute/Constitution' (perhaps
you have legal experience) then you're help could be invaluable
to the next stage of MIL's development.
