On Friday September 27 around 9am on the P-660 route, Lavkenche Community defenders stopped a low bed truck tractor in the Lanalhue sector, with intentions of blocking the route. At that time police personnel began clearing the road.

Hooded people fought back against police vehicle with projectiles, damaging the vehicle and injuring an officer. One of the shots hit the windshield grill of the police vehicle, injuring an officer at neck level with ballistic impact of pellet.

The Lavkenche Community also defended the waters and land of Lake Lanalhue by refusing a visit from the Undersecretary of the Interior, Rodrigo Ubilla.
