but the "left" in chile is nobody's friend, but their own.
One sane act committed in thousands of years of historical failure does not a redemption make. Good on them, though.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Don't think it has been mentioned here, but garbage collectors have joined the strike in RM. No garbage collection in 42 municipalities. Also, footballers on strike. No national game nor Chilean league. Today is the 1 year anniversary of the death of Catrillanca. Could turn violent... Not a problem...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Um isn't the whole idea of democracy that citizens are responsible, responsible for educating themselves on who is who in elections etc, not saying it happens, but to start saying it's all the government and systems faults is a road to nowhere. All the destruction and all the anger and blame is a r...

Article 12 of the 1936 Soviet Constitution:

In the USSR work is a duty and a matter of honor for every able-bodied citizen, in accordance with the principle: “He who does not work, neither shall he eat.”
Don't forget "We pretend to work and they pretend to pay us."

But until then, people screaming "communism" at the very basic social democratic reforms can fuck off.
Socialism, communism, potato pohtahtoe. Both a bunch of lazy slackers wanting to be treated like royalty on someone else’s dime.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

A Venezuelan perspective: De verdad es una locura... Esto se volvió puro vandalismo y delincuencia nada más... La gente que si esta reclamando por lo q dicen q se debiera cambiar debería apoyar a las fuerzas (policías) a q estos actos no se permitan.... Para hacer ver lo q esta mal nunca es necesari...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I agree that there has been throughout this a kind of tacit acceptance of criminal behavior in the sense that most people are not in agreement with it explicitly (if you ask them) but only criticize politicians and the military while ignoring the other side of the story And the people looting and b...

Well if were just making things up now to troll,
That's what you opened this up with. But hey, I’ll give you something that gives you both gleeful joy and anal prolapse:
John Cobin did nothing wrong!

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

You were poking at the mob, which is a back hand way to say me and a couple of other people, so expect a reply. There is No justification for Cobin firing on peaceful protestors. Once he had already passed the threat of dancing. Completely different then attacking a military base. Then poking at me...

Exaggerating now are we. Because apparently it's okay for an American to randomly shoot people who are peacefully protesting.... Nothing to do with attacking military bases was it...
No, because i said no such thing and you're still poking at me for your lack of reading comprehension.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I wonder what Chilean law actually says about this kind of action. I can't really imagine anywhere else in the world where the military wouldn't have plowed through the rioters with lethal ammunition if they tried to attack a police station or army base. Careful what you say-- the mob here will lab...

These "people" don't deserve to have any say in how the country runs. In fact, imo they should be locked up!

Nothing excuses this nationwide orgy of hate and destruction which is now starting to threaten the life and safety of ordinary Chileans.
Finally a voice I can agree with!!!
