well, this was an interesting day of the bachelet administration sticking their foot in eachother's mouths.
Valdez admits that growth is not a priority for a lot of the ministers. They killed a 2.5 billion dollar mining project, because I guess they were in a hurry.

Then later, the attorney general essentially said that the trucks that were burned in los rios by the mapuche, was the fault of the company. Guess they did not have sufficient armed guards with automatic weapons. He was later asked on TV what he would say to anyone that was robbed, raped, and so on. Is it the victims fault that a crime was committed against them?
a guest on a radio talk show even went so far as to accuse the extreme left in the bachelet administration of actively protecting the mapuche terrorist, pointing out how lawyers from their "human rights" department actually showed up to defend a mapuche last year against charges of terrorism. I don't doubt there are lot of sympathizers in bachelets administration right now, but not sure I would take it that far. Pretty dam close however.
Pinera promptly made lots of political hay out of all of that.
With a cheap shot along the lines of, "if it looks like terrorism, acts like terrorism, it IS terrorism". The bachelet administration danced around it all day, until they had to finally say they would invoke the terrorism law.
Don't go sticking your commie head in the human rights sand, just because you are sympathetic to the overall cause the terrorist are supporting. Then also, she won't condem maduro either.
