(en) ait russia: Chile: The Hunger Riots [machine translation]

Date Mon, 25 May 2020 09:41:31 +0300

In Chile, against the backdrop of repressive restrictions imposed by the authorities on the pretext of an epidemic, hunger protests began. People protest against the poverty that "quarantine" dooms them to and demand social assistance. ---- Late Monday night, the sounds of thundering pots were heard in various areas and neighborhoods of Santiago. On the tower "Telephones" in the center of the Chilean capital, on the wall of which slogans were projected during the social uprising that broke out in the country last October, the word "Hunger" now appeared. There were calls on social networks to arrange pan-riots ("Caserolas") against "hunger and poverty", which met with support from many citizens. ---- Prior to this, in the El Bosque area in the south of Stantiago, about 100 people from morning to evening held protests against the lack of food and poverty, into which they are plunged by the government quarantine. However, one of the protesters explained to television that he was "not against quarantine, but against hunger."

In the afternoon, local media reported about the arson of a bus in the central district of Estacion Central and small barricades erected in other areas of the capital.

The events in El Bosque became the first confrontation with the police after a total quarantine was introduced in Santiago on Friday. After the protesters erected burning barricades and blocked traffic on several streets in the area, a squad of carabinieri tried to disperse them with water cannons, but the protests continued at other points.

The President announced on May 17 the allocation of 2.5 million sets of food, detergents and hygiene products to the most needy. He promised that 70% of families would be reached.
