Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

to admin: I think you are absolutely right about the carabineros. It was a very very stupid mistake to scapegoat them. And attack them. And burn them with molotov cocktails. I also think it is very very stupid to be whinging about "crimes against humanity" allegedly committed by carabineros while at...

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

the Municipal building in San Antonio was apparently burned to the ground late Friday. So I'm wondering how many and what sort of records were stored there. No doubt all paper files are gone, plus computers. Did they back up to another location? This is chile .... how much will this cost?

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

to fraggie092 Thank you for all the information. You clearly are following all this very closely. I do think that people have the right to peacefully assemble and protest, but most of what we've seen hasn't been that. I do very much agree that the international press hasn't got a clue and/or isn't p...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

to fraggie092: I don't actually recall anyone on this site defending the violence. To eeuunikkeiexpat: I'm wondering about the police "holding back." Lots of possibilities including fear of various types. Usually they are out numbered. If they actually respond they are accused of excessive force. An...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

admin - perhaps you can give more information concerning the chileno variety of "evangelicos." I am puzzled exactly because 1.) the current coup in Bolivia was organized and is now run by a variety of violent completely intolerant "evangelicos." No freedom of religion there! And 2.) some of the curr...

Re: War with Iran just started

It has NOT been confirmed that the boeing 737 was brought down by missiles. The indications are that there was an engine failure event at a critical time during takeoff which the pilot was not able to overcome. The black box has been recovered and the final verdict will be announced after review. I ...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Re penalties for chaos. The con=gress here seems to be just a s witless - just as over paid and over bribed as the eeuu wankers. The really sad part is that Every chileno I've talked with in the last week or so - maybe 40 peeps all in - say that 1.) the justice system Must impose penalties on crimin...
