Protesters in Antofagasta Demand Amnesty for Political Prisoners

Hundreds of protesters gathered in the Bonilla district of Antofagasta to protest for the resignation of Chilean President Sebastian Piñera and amnesty for all political prisoners of the 18th of October Uprising.

Police responded with heavy-handed repression, using chemically-tainted water cannons against demonstrators and firing tear gas and rubber bullets towards the crowd.
