Chile: Arrests made as hundreds protest against government in Santiago

Police deployed water cannon and arrested at least 21 anti-government protesters in Santiago on Friday. Around 200 protesters were estimated to have gathered at Plaza Italia demanding a new constitution and respect for the rights of the indigenous Mapuche people. «I came to demand that the Mapuche people be respected and given the rights they have and that now are being violated by Chilean injustice, that is why I am here and for the prisoners of the revolt too, because it is unfair what happens to them,” said protester Eduardo Munoz. According to reports, Friday’s anti-government protest is believed to be the largest rally to take place in Santigo since the coronavirus pandemic struck Chile.
