Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

They don't use guerilla tactics. Instead, they try to overwhelm carabineros through sheer numbers. Its called a Turbazo when a flash mob forms to rob a store. Works very well for overwhelming supermarket guards. That's where the not-so-peaceful protesters probably got the idea. I wonder if they are...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

After all the outrage about the use of rubber bullets, La Tercera obtained the INDH statistics for eye injuries. A total of 232 eye injuries with 7(!) cases of eye loss, not sorted by cause. Carabineros have suffered 19 cases of eye loss, but that's hardly reported anywhere. . Fact checking parte XX...

Re: lost certificado de permanencia definitiva

I don't believe permanencia definitiva expires but you need the certificate to renew a cedula. Yes, that's correct. I recently did this by going to the PDI a month before the old one expired. T he appointment system wasn't necessary once I was able to explain what I needed. The guy I talked to just...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

There is a law that reduces/eliminates contribuciones for Senior Citizens. It comes with various conditions attached, and dates from 2014. Nothing to do with the current kefuffle.

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

This is not some epic class struggle, its 30000 to 50000 scum criminals plus dishonest politicians who are hijacking a social movement that's looking for a bit more of a level playing field , and nearly everyone knows that. Plus all the other interested groups that have scented blood in the water. ...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Now that the "contras" have managed to further their aims through violence, they will continue to do so in the future, regardless of whatever the government does. It hasn't stopped, this is a hiatus. Just last night, this happened: . Intendente Guevara condena el cobarde ataque a comisaría de La Gra...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

I'm not sure how lenient he is or is not, in this interview he comes off as whining a bit about who gets credit for what, but to be fair to him, I'm confident that there are cases where police here detain someone but the evidence provided of a crime is just not sufficient for them to consider bring...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

In today's EMOL, columnist Gonzalo Rojas gives an account of the last seven weeks that reflects the current situation as seen by, I would say, a great many informed, apolitical Chileans. From the torrent of events and emotions, recounted in an appropriately Joycean way, the following extract is part...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

I think it is simpler than that. Had he just done something, anything, early on he might have averted this whole mess. Too little, too late, just snowballed. The government was hit from multiple directions simultaneously with no warning. Too many attacks from all sorts of seemingly unrelated source...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Thing is that these encuestas don't mean much. Opinions change from month to month, and even within any particular sample,the results can be contradictory. On this forum I have seen people calling for stronger Police action, then later on they want them off the streets. Fine, afaig for a personal op...
