Araucania Rising

Published: January 10, 2013, Author: JayTaber

As much of the world’s attention is on the indigenous uprising in Canada, the conflict between indigenous peoples and settlers at the southern tip of the hemisphere is escalating. While less intense than say Gaza or Chechnya, the battle between the indigenous Mapuche and the European settlers — who were given stolen lands within the territory of Araucania by the Chilean government — remains intractable. With the government putting its police and military forces behind the settlers, the disputed territory continues as a locus of unresolved and ongoing human rights violations.
