Protesters in Valparaiso Demand Resignation of Piñera and Release of Political Prisoners

Hundreds of protesters in the Chilean city of Valparaiso marched and clashed with Carabineros, demanding the immediate resignation of President Sebastian Piñera and the release and amnesty of political prisoners.

Demonstrators lit barricades on the Condel road, and then were pepper-sprayed by police and eventually dispersed. Burning tires were also set as a barricade on Highway 25 in the Santa Rosa neighborhood of the city, stopping traffic for hours until Carabinero riot police arrived on the scene.
