Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Chileans Take to Streets One Year After Start of Mass Protests & Ahead of Constitutional Referendum

HeadlineOct 19, 2020

In Chile, tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Santiago Sunday to mark the first anniversary of mass protests against neoliberal policies and inequality in the country. Chilean police clashed with protesters and fired tear gas and water cannons. Chile is preparing to vote on a referendum that could replace the country’s Pinochet-era constitution next Sunday. This is one of the protesters.

Protester: “There is a lot of injustice in Chile. We have to keep fighting. That is all. We haven’t achieved anything yet. A year has passed, and nothing has been achieved. That’s why we have to keep fighting in the streets.”
