The protest was specifically aimed for denounce the systematic criminalization that is being subjected the comrade lonko (“leader”) Facundo Jones Huala, who was arrested a week ago for the second time by the Argentine State, in order to slow down the processes of territorial recovery and autonomy in the Mapuche communities that he strongly encourages, with great advance in the communal expropriation of the lands of Lof in resistance of Vuelta del Rio of the locality of Cushamen (Argentina), ‘property’ of the big transnational Benetton.
