Chile: Water cannons, tear gas deployed on Santiago anti-govt. protesters

Police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse protesters calling for the resignation of Chilean President Sebastian Pinera in Santiago on Friday. Protesters were seen throwing objects and molotov cocktails at police, who in turn used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the hundreds of demonstrators who had gathered near the Moneda presidential palace. Protesters were also seen holding a banner calling for the release of all those who remain in detention as a result of the widespread anti-government protests that began in October 2019. Chile has been rocked by anti-government protests since 2019, leading to a referendum on October 25 in which citizens overwhelmingly voted for a new constitution.
