Chilean government, free political prisoners


This 22 November 2920 video says about itself:

Chile protesters call on the government to release political prisoners

Demonstrations are taking place across Chile as the families of nearly 700 young men under preventive detention or house arrest spearhead a nationwide campaign on behalf of those they consider political prisoners.

They are demanding the release of people arrested during protests for social reform over the past year.

The government is under strong pressure to grant a complete amnesty for protesters

But President Sebastian Pinera is saying that under no circumstances will he consider doing so.

Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman reports from Santiago, Chile.
