The Movimiento de Furiosos Ciclistas (Movement of furious cyclists) announced that they consider the legislation an “aberration”. In response to legislation, the organization will stage a protest at 8:00 pm Monday in Santiago’s Plaza Italia.

If nobody shows up to the Plaza Italia, just wait. They'll be along. Be sure to dress like a gringo with a big camera and a laptop case.

piss-poor protest in Nunoa this evening

Post by Andres » Wed Jan 25, 2012 12:35 am

On the sixth night of my visit to Chile, I was entertained by a piss-poor excuse for a protest, complete with a fire no more than one metre square, Carabineros in riot gear, a water cannon and little or no tear gas. The Carabineros asked those of us with children in Plaza Nunoa to clear the area. But the people having piss-ups (drinks) at the restaurants at the edge of the plaza were not disturbed.

There were ´human rights officials´, complete with plastic helmets, but I am not sure whose rights they are supposedly protecting as the worst the Carabineros did was give a few people showers with their water cannon (despite repeated rock-throwing near bystanders).
Chile: My expectations are low. Very low.
I accept chaos. I'm not sure whether it accepts me.

Welcome to Latin America man. You finally got here :D Sounds like nobody has a whole lot of energy anymore in Santiago... understandable given the temperatures.

Where do you plan to go to next?

Thanks. I return my daughter to Oz tomorrow, finish a financial/legal reorganisation there for a couple of weeks, then return to Santiago to live with my polola and apply for residency.
