Argentina: Missing protester Santiago Maldonado found dead; activist supported Mapuche indigenous peoples' claim to Benetton-owned land
Santiago Maldonado was last seen alive on 1st August, after clashes between Mapuche indigenous communities and the National Argentinean Guard that evicted them from lands owned by Benetton. The Mapuches claim part of these lands as ancestral territory. Several human rights organizations have asked the government to investigate the case. Missing activist's body was later found and identified by his brother on 20th October 2017. Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Benetton to respond; the company did not.
