Santiago Protests for Freedom of Political Prisoners and Resignation of Piñera

Hundreds of protesters marched in the Plaza Brasil of Santiago demanding the release of political prisoners of the 18th of October Uprising. Barricades were also placed in Puente Alto to shut down roads.

Later in the day, a bikers’ march occurred demanding the resignation of Chilean President Sebastian Piñera and amnesty for all political prisoners.

Demonstrators also began to prepare for the day of national mobilization soon ahead of them, acquiring the resources necessary to not get burned by chemical water cannons or suffer lung damage from tear gas.
