Radio Bio-Bio, 02:10:10 – The spokesman of the 9 Mapuche on hunger strike in Angol prison met with the Minister Larroulet Cristián to deliver their response to the government’s agreement, not accepting it and announcing that the hunger strike remains in force. The Minister Larroulet said that the priority is people’s lives and that they will insist that they stop with the hunger strike. However, there was no agreement reached with the 9 Mapuche who continue a hunger strike in Angol prison. The Mapuche spokesman said they were in a phase of reflection, so there are dates being set for new negotiations.

Following the agreement of October 1, Concepción, accepted by 24 MPP detained in the prisons of Concepción, Temuco and Lebu, some MPP decided to continue the struggle initiated on July 12, considering the conditions of the agreement to be insufficient. 14 MPPs have decided to continue with the hunger strike, to the end.
– 3 are still in the jail of Angol

– Three are being held in prison in Temuco, note that the three began the strike in September
