"A week ago, approximately 500 indigenous families occupied a land that officially belongs to the company Ledesma. Ledesma is owned by the Blaquier family, an ally of the Jorge Rafael Videla’s murderous regime (the dictator of Argentina from 1976 to 1981). The occupiers demanded the landowners to give them back their lands.The police under the orders of the company owners and the [Kirchnerist] government attacked the families during their sleep, throwing gas and rubber bullets on their tents, or setting them on fire, killing three and wounding six others, including one person who is in hospital in critical condition, while an infant of 1.5 months experienced severe respiratory problems. The chief of police stated that the squatters were armed (!!!)." (clip)There's a video in the link: http://eagainst.com/articles/three-dead-in-argentina-after-police-raids-against-indigenous-squat/
