(en) A quick balance of today's (23-10-19) day in Chile: (ca)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 25 Oct 2019 09:23:37 +0300

- Another day more crowds, whole families, the streets were taken in every corner of the country (the image is from the capital). Neither the announcements of President Piñera yesterday (more of the same) nor the fear he has tried to install through a runaway repression or the paranoia environment that some media have fed in recent days managed to leave people at home. ---- - Social Unit, the articulation of the main organizations of the Chilean people (with a very important weight of the unions of the public sector) had convened for today a day of General Strike that the preliminary data indicate that it has had a greater follow-up than in previous occasions , adding strips of workers who normally do not stop for fear of dismissal. In a country where the right to strike is very limited and the minimum standards of the ILO are not met, that is worth highlighting and demonstrating a state of mind. Highlight that it was again the port unions grouped in the Port Union of Chile who kicked off starting stoppages on Monday.

- The government and its political supporters continue with clumsy declarations and movements that denote a huge distance with the popular feeling: to give just one example, yesterday in Congress their deputies refused to discuss a bill that seeks to reduce the work week 45 to 40 hours and today they mocked and broke photos of murdered protesters. They are only talking to the most convinced among their own.

- The pantomime of "national dialogue" that armed the government and culminated in the announcements of the president quickly deflated by attending that face-lift only the opposition parties that share economic program with Chile Vamos (the coalition of Piñera): PR , PPD and DC. The PS (which for more than 20 years shared a coalition of government with the previous ones) was subtracted at the last minute of going. Other opposition parties also refused to attend or were not directly invited.

- The general feeling in those who are protesting is that today there are no conditions for dialogue, because there is no gesture that the government is open to it, and that in the event that these conditions were generated it should be open door, with All the representative actors of Chilean society, without exclusions. The need for a new social pact that overcomes the dictatorial heritage is being installed, and the Constituent Assembly resonates as a way of materializing it.
