Protests in Chile may escalate, strikes take place already

In Chile, sustained economic hardships may evoke a new wave of protests.

“With the resources this country has, these problems should have been solved many years ago. I went out to march and if I have to do it again, I will”, – a man shared.

Summer is over in the southern hemisphere, and Chileans say they are afraid — or welcome — the prospect that the turn of the season could herald a renewal of the vast protests that shook the nation late last year over the government’s failure to channel one of Latin America’s best economies into well-being for the working and middle classes.
