Chilean Protests

Chilean Protests

On Friday, more than a million people gathered at a peaceful protest in Santiago, Chile, calling for social reform. Originally sparked by an increase in metro fares, the movement has grown over the past several days to address broader issues of living costs and inequality. More than 20 people have been killed since the protests began, and today Chilean President Sebastián Piñera removed eight members of his cabinet in an attempt to quell protests.
