Chile: Over 1 Million Take to Streets in Protest Against Inequality

HeadlineOct 28, 2019

In Chile, over a million people poured into the streets Friday amid a massive ongoing uprising over economic inequality and crippling austerity in the South American country. Chilean President Sebastián Piñera announced he will lift Chile’s state of emergency tonight and begin a major Cabinet reshuffle following the historic protests. At least 18 people have been killed and hundreds more have been shot and wounded since protests erupted on October 19, amid mounting reports of brutality and torture by Chilean authorities. The United Nations is sending a team to Chile to investigate allegations of human rights abuses against anti-government protesters.
