Ci si interroga non solo in Argentina sulla morte di Cristiano Maldonado, giovane attivista per i diritti umani trovato senza vita, apparentemente vittima di affogamento, dopo la scomparsa avvenuta all’indomani dell’ennesima partecipazione alle proteste degli indios Mapuche che reclamano il diritto alla terra sottratta da grandi proprietari nella zona della Patagonia. La questione e l’impegno ha toccato sensibilmente anche l’Italia perché tra i grandi possidenti interessati alla proteste vi è il noto gruppo della famiglia Benetton che possiede   900mila ettari nella provincia del Chubut a Sud dell’Argentina. La ricerca della verità sulla fine di Cristiano potrà avvenire con l’impegno a livello internazionale.
