Protest in front of the ICC in The Hague, June 18, 2021

THE HAGUE – Today we denounced the human rights violations in Chile. We demand the release of all political prisoners and respect for the citizens who are exercising their right to protest. We demand truth, justice and reparation for the victims of the criminal government of Sebastian Piñera and we ask the International Criminal Court to review the documents sent by Judge Garzon and other human rights organization so that Piñera can be judged in a trial at ICC of The Hague.

April 17: protest on the International Day of the Political Prisoner in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

On the International Day of the Political Prisoner, the Chilean community in the Netherlands joins the call for justice and immediate freedom for all political prisoners in Chile and Wallmapu. Before the international community, Chile presents itself as a free and democratic state, but the figures presented by national and international organizations that defend human rights say otherwise. Every day we receive videos in which we see images of how the human rights of the Chilean citizens are being violated. However, our politicians do nothing and state agents of the Forces of Order and Security act with total impunity.
On May 15 and 16,  there will be elections to elect constituents to draft a new constitution. This process would not have been possible if thousands of citizens had not demonstrated throughout Chile. Today many of those protesters are in prison and face absurd sentences. Every week new citizens are being imprisoned without evidence that they have committed any crime. To the government of Chile we say: enough of criminalizing social leaders and those who exercise the free right to demonstrate for a better Chile.
Freedom to all political prisoners in Chile, including Mapuche political prisoners!
