In Chile, hundreds of thousands of people poured into the streets nationwide to protest Chile’s privatized pension system Sunday. Protesters say the system benefits the rich while leaving the poor with a monthly pension below the minimum wage. Activists say as many as 2 million people protested nationwide—more than 10 percent of the country’s population. This is activist Luis Mesina.
Luis Mesina: “We hope, in this large protest, to express exactly, with a majority viewpoint, that we workers will not rest until this cursed system, that condemns our parents and our grandparents to miserable pensions, is ended.”
