Mapuches of my country still fight for theirs rights to lands, that were taken by force by the Chilean state a century ago, and that now are at the hands of german-descendent immigrants, the upper class but mainly wood companies. Since the return of democracy in the 90s claims has intensified, and although the state has bought large extensions of land to give it back to them, there is still clashes between police and the some exalted natives.

This is a rap that show the Mapuche fights from theirs point of view. Perhaps will shock you, but the interesting point is that they are still the proud people of the past, that fight for theirs rights.

Here, a fight with the minister of planning Confused

 
And here goes the rap, in honor of Matias Catrileo, killed by the police during a protest. In the video Michel Bachelet (current socialist president) is compared with Pinochet.
