HARRIS BUCHER, Gilberto Juan. Violence and the Infamous. Experiences of Chilean rotos (Working Class People in the XIX Century) in the Railroad Works in Arequipa-Puno Railway, 1871-1872, In light of two Unpublished Documents. With Introduction and notes. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2018, n.40, pp.687-695. ISSN 0716-5455.

Two unpublished documents under the custody of the Archive of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have been reproduced including an introduction and notes. These clearly evidence the violence, excesses and infamous events that thousands of Chilean railroad workers suffered when working in the railroad of the Arequipa-Puno railway between 1870 and 1871. This event corresponds to the 25.000 to 30.000 Mapochinos that were hired to build an enormous railway engineering work directed by Enrique Meiggs who, along with other engineers and administrators such as Campbell, Mayo, Tomas, Wiman, Retamal, Anrique, allowed all sorts of excesses and outraging situations against fellow Chileans, also with the complicity of the forces of law and order and the Peruvian judges to deny any type of unfair treatment.
