Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Took a drive from Concon to ritoque and counted eight places where they burnt barricades across the width of the road. Nothing but charred asphalt there now but all placed in strategic locations on important intersections, bridges and exits from the cities. Not a war my ass.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

One good thing is that the air quality is insanely awesome these last couple of days here on the coast, and pretty much everywhere else in the country, both on the No2 and PM2.5 measures https://www.windy.com/-NO2-no2?cams,no2 ... ,-71.931,7

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Everyone has their own conspiracy theory, but I have to say unfortunately my faith in chilean military and police force has been forever shaken. They're the only ones who don't stand to lose anything in all of this, no matter who comes out on top - the left of the right. Why would they shoot themse...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Chile has a Dutch disease and has been removing cash out of the economy via all these AFPs and shit like that to give it to the corporates to invest in other countries. Chile has had Dutch disease for the last 100 years or more, why remove cash from the country through AFP when you can just keep le...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

It's not about capitalism versus socialism or whatever. It's about people around the world losing their national identity in the neo-liberal world. There is stills a lot more national identity and pride in Chile then here in the UK. I always admired it. In the United Kingdom if you fly a British fl...
