Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

I've always wondered: why is everyone that is opposed to this or any other neoliberal government a 'commie' and a 'flaite'? would appreciate a serious, respectful and hopefully non cynical response. I lived in central Santiago during the 2019 unrest, and all I have to say is that, after witnessing ...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

As I recall from last year, March was when it was all starting to kick off again in Santiago after a couple of months of relative calm, until COVID stopped the mayhem dead in its tracks. The problem the government has now is that they have very little justification to keep the restrictions going now...

Re: Squatters

Unfortunately this is the risk you take when renting out property in Chile, I've heard plenty of horror stories like this over the years. My Chilena friend's mother once had a problem with non-paying tenants who declared squatters' rights and refused to leave, getting them out took over a year and t...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Hospital full of COVID patients attacked by "peaceful protesters and the ER room torched in Puente Alto, a concierge also stabbed on Av. Santa Isabel after asking a resident to wear a mask, it's all kicking off. God knows how bad the next ten days are going to be with the protest anniversary and the...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

The shenanigans in Plaza Italia remind me of the mayhem in the "CHAZ" zone in Seattle, in that it's an area that has been completely taken over by criminals who are free to smash it up as much as they want with zero consequences, causing the residents of that area to either flee or become resigned t...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

As if Argentina's government wasn't hit with enough scandals already, a legislator has been caught on film having some *ahem* "intimate" time with his spouse in the middle of a Zoom call with his colleagues, in which he mistakenly believed he had disabled his camera. Those crazy Argies... https://ww...

Re: America on Fire

It's interesting how Chileans, people who we all know love to protest, have remained largely silent on the current issues; I suspect it's because, while most of them would never admit it, they don't really like black people very much. Unlike their neighbours, they are a largely racially homogeneous ...

Re: Any push back?

A supermarket was looted in El Bosque, and a bus was torced in La Pincoya last night https://www.24horas.cl/nacional/turba-q ... ya-4185555

Really don't envy anyone living in the outskirts of Santiago right now.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

57 arrests yesterday in the May Day protest in Plaza Baquedano, one of those arrested had tested positive for COVID and was breaking quarantine. These people seem to be determined to kill each other. https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nacional/region-metropolitana/2020/05/01/detienen-a-57-manifesta...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Yesterday some "peaceful feminists" decided they wanted to burn down a church, unfortunately for them the attempt ended in a bit of a, let's say, a "friendly fire" incident. I believe this is what they call "karma". https://www.instagram.com/p/B9fxJldgRUB/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet&fbcli...

Re: Corona Virus!

I find it amusing the stupid comments from chileans under the articles, and just in general talking to people. They really have no clue, and have not been paying attention to what is going on. let's see some of the gems, I have seen so far. you can cure it with paracetamol. They are requiring every...
