Argentina: Leandro Crovetto, Chilean Awakening
Manifestations in Chile that start in mid-October 2019 reveal that the Chilean political-economic system which was considered by many “specialists” as a successful example to follow, excludes most of the population.
What began with the rejection of the public transport price increase it has become in demands like change the constitution. People ask to democratize water, changes in the AFP system, reduction of working hours, more rights to indigenous people and other important points.
Far from listening people's demands, president Sebastián Piñera answers with repression.
So, to this day, thousands of people are organized in many regions of the country in order to claim more rights and deep changes in the Chilean system.
