(en) ait russia: Chile: "The people are starving and furious" [machine translation]

Date Thu, 9 Jul 2020 08:55:18 +0300


On the evening of July 2, demonstrations and clashes with carabinieri took place in various parts of Chile. The call for protests was distributed on social networks. The population was invited on the evening of 2 and in the morning of July 3 to arrange "protests of empty pots" (kaserolasos) to express outrage at the disastrous socio-economic and medical situation in the country against the background of the epidemic. However, there were calls for an immediate general strike. Pans boomed on Thursday evening, and in many areas of Santiago, people began to take to the streets. ---- In Villa France on Central, people staged protests and erected barricades. The police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse the crowd. Protesters also burned the Transantiago bus.
"We went to Caserolaso at 5 pm," commented one of the villagers, Villa Francia. "Less than 10 minutes later, the carabinieri arrived with their water jets, vans and wedges. She attacked us completely disproportionately."

Protests were also noted in other areas of the capital: Puente Alto, Pudauel, La Victoria in Pedro Aguirre Cerd and in the former Olympic village in Newnoa, where police attacked the protesters in the midst of Caserolaso and began to gas them. In Penyalolen, about 200 people attacked a police station.

Demonstrations were recorded not only in the capital, but also in other regions, where carabinieri and the military also intervened. Protests took place in San Roque de Valparaiso and in Rodelillo. In Valparaiso, workers burst into the territory of the Carlos Van Buren Hospital, recalling the 9-month-old Amelia, who died without waiting for treatment. The demonstration and the "casserole pump" are noted in Antofagast, Aric and Concepcion. In Antofagast, repressions were reminiscent of the times of Pinochet: police broke into houses in the La Caccimba area.

An open meeting was organized in Antofagast on Friday, convened by the Committee on Emergency and Rescue in order to coordinate the actions of workers in the face of the crisis. Representatives of trade unions, youth and public organizations are invited. the organizers said that entrepreneurs should pay for the crisis, not the working people, who are being cut and laid off.
