We Mapuche Political Prisoners on Hunger Strike and mobilized by our rights will continue will continue with much strength until we reach our objective.
Day after day we are more convinced that we will go forward to the final consequences if necessary. We know that it is very risky due to the issue of health, but we will give our lives if necessary. If they want to forcefully feed us then we will sew our mouths if necessary.
We also give thanks for all the support that we have received and that we do not just fight for our freedom. What is most important is our territory just as it is for all indigenous nations.
A message to all the Peoples that struggle for national liberation and for their territory: we send you much strength and that the repressive States do not wage war daily as they do to us. Let us fight for our territory, rights and strength.
For our freedom, our families, our People and Community; we will fight till the end. We will give our lives if necessary and much more.
FREEDOM OR DEATH
