Carabineros Attack Protesters Demanding Amnesty for Political Prisoners With Water Cannons

Dozens of Chilean activists and street medics gathered at Plaza Dignidad in Santiago to protest for amnesty for all political prisoners and in commemoration of the murder of the Mapuche warrior Matías Catrileo on the 3rd of January in 2007.

Demonstrators were immediately subjected to chemically tainted water cannons, with many left having scars and burns. One protester was also thrown to the ground and injured by a water cannon blast that hit them directly.
