Why is Chile that f*cked up?? The war explained

Give me context…On October 6, the price of the subway increased in Chile from 800 pesos ($1.13) to 830 pesos ($1.17). Thousands of people took the streets and protests became very violent.

Consequences.

  1. Protesters looted and set fire to stores.
  2. 960 were people arrested.
  3. 11 dead and 65 injured.

The President of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, announced that he was suspending the subway fare increase and he declared a state of emergency in the city of Santiago de Chile.

What happens with a state of emergency?

Basically, the military takes control of the city and people aren’t allowed to leave their homes at certain times and move freely around.

What now? 

The subway fare increase was the final straw. Now, the people are protesting against the significant economic inequalities.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
