Poem for Luca Abba, injured NO TAV activist written by Mapuche poet Rayen Kvyeh (Italy, $hile)

Luca, brother, friend, comrade

The summer suns burnt out, the rivers of clouds ran wild

The ancestors of our Mapu Nuke inhabiting the mountains and the libertarian spirits sleeping on the peaks of the Val Susa are protecting your sleep.

From deep inside our hearts we raise our chants into the sacred Rewe so that you can recover and go back to your people, the women and men of free thought, who struggle for mother earth, alive and libertarian.

To the comrades of NO TAV, to you whom I have recorded in my memory, for your solidarity, dignity and struggle, our solidarity that springs up from deep inside the roots of araucarias and cinnamon protecting our land.

Luca, brother, friend, comrade

We are with you from across the Andes
And swimming in the oceanic seas
Of peoples’ solidarity.

Rayen Kvyeh (Mapuche poet in the territory occupied by the State of $hile)
