Chile, Temuco: Supreme court sentences Machi Celestino Cordova to 18 years

from refractario, transl. by wos:

On the 12th of May, 2014 the Supreme Court reviewed the motion to nullify for the case of mapuche comunero Celestino Cordova, who is accused of the incendiary attack which cost a pair of wealthy landowners their lives on 1/4/2014. The tribunals decided to sentence him to 18 years in prison and the Supreme Court upheld the sentence. Clestino is now being held in Temuco jail.

In the face of the sentences of power: Solidarity to those who stay strong and dignified inside of prisons!

Note: Celestino has been carrying out a hunger strike since 5/11/14, more information in Spanish here.
