Over 100 protesters took to the streets of Valparaíso to demand the release of all political prisoners of the social uprising in Chile that began in 2019.

Hundreds of protesters in the Santiago district of Providencia gathered in opposition to SENAME, the Chilean national minors’ service, widely despised for abuses towards children left in their custody, as 1,313 people had died in their custody between 2005 and 2016. Police attacked the demonstration, deploying water cannons and tear gas.
