Protesters continued the Panamerican blockade for a 5th day, with clashes escalating and later ending in the murder of an indigenous youth by police in Ica. Interim President Francisco Sagasti, inaugurated November 15th, condemned the killing and called it a tragedy, but did not dole out a punishment for those responsible as farmers continued to hold their ground.
Dozens of protesters in the Villa Francia area of Santiago took to the streets on the Day of the Youth Combatant, in which 2 young activist brothers were murdered by the Pinochet dictatorship. Demonstrators placed barricades and clashed with law enforcement, throwing Molotov cocktails at water cannons and other militarized vehicles.
Hundreds of protesters gathered in Santiago for the anniversary of the police murder of Mauricio Fredes in the 2019 protests, demanding justice for the fallen comrade. Police responded with intense repression, using water cannons, tear gas, and pepper spray indiscriminately against protesters and medics alike, but demonstrators remained firm and did not back off until the night.
