In a march commemorating the ninth anniversary of the murder of indigenous Mapuche activist Matias Catrileo, shot in the back by police,  protesters stormed the financial district of Santiago, Chile. They demanded charges against Mapuche spiritual leader or ‘Machi” Francisca Linconao be dropped. She is charged in an arson attack that killed two wealthy land owners in ancestral Mapuche lands. After a 14 day hunger strike ‘to freedom or death,’ she was released on house arrest the same day as the march and ended her hunger strike. Protesters denounced ongoing  police violence against indigenous peoples in Chile. Decrying cases like that of Brandon Hernández Huentecol, 17, who was shot in the back police last month. Huentecol has had 12 operations and remains in critical condition. His family denounced police efforts to buy their silence.
