Australian professor talks about the violence on Rapa Nui

Radio Australian reported on the Rapa Nui Easter Island Chile ongoing events. If you click on this link you will be taken to the story and it has a link to an audio interview with Professor Grant McCall, an anthropologist from the University of New South Wales in Australia, who lived on Rapa Nui for seven years.

The Radio report stated, in part: “Armed Chilean troops have opened fire on unarmed civilians on the island of Rapa Nui during conflict over land rights.

The Chilean government annexed the island which lies about three thousand miles off its coast, more than a century ago.

Hawaii Public Radio’s Kayla Rosenfeld spoke to cameraman Santi Hitorangi who was filming the violence, when he was shot, along with dozens of other people. He has since told Pacific Beat that he has gone into hiding.”
