Mass protests in Chile, why?


This 8 November 2019 video says about itself:

‘The Pinochet dictatorship never ended’: Inside Chile’s mass uprising against neoliberalism

Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal speak with journalist Alina Duarte, who is in Chile reporting on the enormous protests against right-wing billionaire oligarch President Sebastián Piñera. We discuss his neoliberal capitalist policies, growing poverty and inequality, the brutally violent police and military repression of the demonstrations, the regional implications, and the historical echoes of the Pinochet dictatorship.
