Chile: After 46 days the Mapuche 4 have ended their hunger strike

The Mapuche 4 have ended their 46 day hunger strike after reaching an agreement with the Chilean state. Two of the prisoners will be transferred to the Center for Study and Work while the other two will be be placed under a much less restrictive regime. The four prisoners began their hunger strike on the 23rd of March in Angol prison and all four were eventually transferred to Victoria hospital after having lost between 12 and 20 percent of their overall body weight.
