October Rebellion Resurges in Chile After 1 Year Anniversary

Chileans have returned to the streets after the 1-year anniversary of the October Rebellion of 2019 that led to the reformation of the constitution. Protesters believe that the changes were nowhere near enough and were simply used to keep the people down. Demonstrators have been attacked and killed by police and the military in multiple cities across the country.
