Police Attack Hundreds in Santiago Demanding Release of Political Prisoners

Hundreds of protesters in Santiago gathered for a demonstration demanding the release of the political prisoners of Chile’s social uprising that began in 2019, some of which have been detained for over a year. Police responded with extreme repression, arriving in the dozens with tear gas and armored vehicles, attacking street medics, and making several brutal arrests.
