Chile: Mapuche Women Continue Occupation of UNICEF Office

The peaceful occupation of UNICEF headquarters in Santiago, Chile, by Mapuche women has continued for 20 days. Mapuche leaders have stated that the occupation will continue until UNICEF becomes more actively involved in cases of police violence against Mapuche children. On August 12, blogger and photographer Kena Lorenzini Lorenzini [es] captured images of the cultural activities held in front of UNICEF to support the two women, a mother and her daughter, who are still occupying the UNICEF office.
