“In Patagonia they are going to lose like crazy because they are still functional to the Mapuches,” Pichetto said in a dialogue with Someone Has to Say It (Radio Rivadavia), and argued that Rafael Bielsa, current Argentine ambassador in Chile, offered his support to the leader of the Ancestral Mapuche Resistance, Facundo Jones Huala, because “he received orders from the government.” He also defined the latter as a “terrorist”, as compiled NA.
Pichetto has been following the Huala issue for quite some time and has always positioned himself on the opposite side to that of the ruling party. It should be remembered that Huala was extradited to the neighboring country in 2018 where he was tried for the burning of a property in the Pisu Pisué ranch and for illegal possession of homemade weapons and sentenced to nine years in prison.

In this context, he stressed that in the area of the foothills there appear characters who claim to be from the original Mapuche peoples, endorsed by some leaders of the old montonerismo in Argentina! They present “proclamations almost of a subversive character in the style of the ’70s.”
With which, Pichetto also recalled the attack that took place days ago against the Rio Negro Provincial Highway Directorate and pointed out that “they vindicated it with a proclamation qualifying the act as one of a military nature on the way to the consolidation of a Mapuche State. ”. “This tribute to Roca has to do with making Argentines aware of what is happening in Patagonia,” said the leader of Juntos por el Cambio.
Referring to the general who commanded the so-called “Desert Campaign” in 1878 and was President of the Nation between 1898 and 1904, Pichetto said: “His ideas and political current positioned Argentina on the podium of prosperity, and his strategic vision consolidated our entire national territory. It is time to claim it ”, he said, before the family of the honoree, who invited him to the auditor.
