The settlement that the self-proclaimed Mapuche community Lof Quemquemtreu maintains in the Cuesta del Ternero area
The sister of Elías Garay, the young man who died after being shot in a confrontation in the land seizure in Cuesta del Ternero, took aim at the Mapuche community and stated that “these people negotiated with the body” of his brother and that “it they used until the last minute for their convenience. ”
“We are very hurt as a family. My brother died for a cause that I take firsthand as if he were the one who needed a piece of land. He immolated himself for and to help these people who use the most needy. These people negotiated with my brother’s body, I use it until the last minute for their convenience, “said Mary Garay, in a letter she posted on her Facebook account.
“That is why here in Jacobacci we are not going to ask for justice. To who? If we don’t know who killed him. We do not know if the community killed him so that he would not tell how those people live, how the referents use them to obtain profit. I have never heard that a chief of them is killed, those who come in to share their struggle and make it their own always pay with their lives because they see how a child goes hungry inside and outside their Mapuche referents move in a vehicle in the best way ”, The writing continued.
“I know of the huge heart that my brother had, I know that today many of those people in there are not going to eat because he died and did not go out today to find him a piece of bread. Today they are going to use it once more and this time to hold onto my mother’s last name, to say that my brother was Mapuche, and they are going to continue using it to engage in politics. That is why today those of his blood are not going to go out on the streets … We want Justice but we will ask for it in our own way, ”concluded Elías Garay’s sister.
