kihi beaten by police 12_29_201

December 29, 2010

Today, December 29th just before 7 PM, an contingency of 200 armed police began violently dislodging the Rapanui Parliament from their headquarters in the center of the town of Hanga Roa, Rapa Nui. The police have beaten dozens of Rapa Nui with clubs, including children and women. They have arrested at least two dozen people.

This action was a unilateral decision made by the Regional Indendent, Raul Celis. The operation was directed by the Police Commander, Oscar Salazar who confirmed, “Celis gave the order.”

Lola Tuki, who was there said that it was “unbelievable to see the degree of violence and inhuman treatment and prejudice. The police were cursing at the women calling them, “Goddamn indian bitches”, and grabbing them violently.

Many of the people taken from the Tuki and HIto clan were defending the President of the Rapa Nui Parliament, Leviante Araki.

This is a developing story.

    This is absolutely disgusting and disgraceful. They talk about human rights of this world and this is what happens. Abusing women and children and the first nation people of Rapanui. Evil and deplorable.
    To our whanau of the Pacific Triangle our blessings of karakia and prayers go to you all.

    Kihi, is a native red head of Easter Island, one of the few remaining descendents of the red haired ‘long ears’. He does not deserve this.
    He is of more pure ancient European stock than the Basques.
    A relic of the ancient Caucasian population of the Americas. An interesting story about to face extinction.
    Please don’t allow politics to get in the way of preserving history.
    Without the culture of Easter Island, the statues mean nothing. this is a world Heritage site – Leave it alone Chile!
