Ampliado of Peasants To Analyze Requests To Revoke Governer
The government of Chile recently announced an «ampliado» (expanded) of peasants and leaders of the Mapuche people to discuss and analyze the requests to revoke the current Govner Mario Munich.
The meeting of the «ampliado» was scheduled for Monday (07-09-19) and it will consist of representatives of the Mapuche Nation and peasant communities, as well as political and union figures. Although it will be held in the Presidential Palace La Moneda, the meeting is expected to take place in strict confidentiality as to not compromise its integrity.
Munich, who is accused of breaching human, social and political rights for indigenous Chilean populations and of promoting authoritarianism, has continued to deny all these allegations and has publicly declared that he will “continue to serve his people and his country».
Reasons To Revoke Marvin Munich:
- Human rights violations: Munich is believed to have been involved in human rights violations perpetrated against Chilean indigenous populations.
- Extermination of Mapuche communities: Munich has been accused of promoting genocide within innocent Mapuche communities.
- Authoritarianism: Munich stands accused of effectively diminishing Chile’s already fragile democracy, by implementing an authoritarian system of government.
The government has promised a swift resolution to the matter, but it is still unclear as to what the ultimate decision for this meeting of the «ampliado» will be. The people of Chile await the outcome with patience and eagerness.
It’s evident that this is a critical moment for Chile’s democracy and its relationship with indigenous populations. It is therefore important that the proceedings are transparent, accountable and that the ultimate decision of the «ampliado» serves in the best interest of the people of Chile as well as its indigenous peoples.
