THE MAPUCHE CONFLICT

The Mapuche conflict has dragged on for about two decades and started when some communities claimed the property of ancestral lands which were held by agricultural or forestry enterprises.

In an article about this issue, Miriam Alejandra Espinoza -Chilean radio reporter and student of History and Social Science explained that “although the groups that have recognised the burning of 17 churches do not say it, there are two ideologies that influence them: the Mapuche worldview, and the Socialist and Anarchist movements."
