This incident joins the long list of repressive attacks that the State has unleashed against the Araucanian farmers.

From April 28 to May 24, the NGO Temblores has recorded 3,155 acts of police brutality, 595 violent interventions, 43 murders at the hands of police officers, and 165 cases of gunfire.
