First, some intro:
Recently, after further rising of subway ticket costs in Chile, there were widespread protests. The Chilean president, billionaire Sebastián Piñera, claimed a state of emergency - the first since dictatorship times. The origin of the protests is social and economic inequality - established and increased since dictatorship times - in contrast to Allende's times.
Secondly, a couple of small questions:
- Why is there no support from western human rights organizations?
- Were there any warnings from the international community that this use of force is unacceptable?
And the main question:
Was there, after Pinochet, some refreshment in establishment, or are the people in establishment and power the same? The opposition to Pinochet's arrest by president Pinera suggests that the establishment hasn't changed, but maybe I am mistaken?
Sadly, about voting mainstream and closevotes, in fact it is a good question.
