Benefit Mapuche communities and their fight for Autonomy

Wente_Winkul_Mapu

Thursday June 20th 2013, Benefit Mapuche communities and their fight for Autonomy, 7pm.

Proceeds will go to support the Mapuche community Wente Winkul Mapu. Maricheweu International (“10 times we shall overcome”) unites people whose main goal it is to support the human rights of the Mapuche (people of the earth). The Mapuche are an indigenous people of South America. Their ancestral lands are occupied by Chile and Argentina. Currently there live more than 1,5 million Mapuche in Chile and about 50,000 in Argentina.
The ongoing systematic destruction of indigenous peoples in South America is an indisputable fact, and apparently an international political strategy. In Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile and elsewhere the human rights of indigenous peoples are flouted over and over again.

Monday May 13th 2013, Volkseten Vegazulu, Indigenous Movement Benefit, 7pm.

Indigenous peoples continue to lose their lands, their rights and their resources. Indigenous peoples make up a third of the rural poor and have higher mortality and child mortality rates than any other group. The UN Declaration on Indigenous Peoples’ Rights has finally got the consensus it deserves, but their rights are still far from being recognized at national and local levels.
