seems u.k. parliament, in the middle of Brexit mess, has taken time to put in a resolution to pressure chile over human rights abuses taking place here.

hummmm, who got those wankers with their sob stories.
Remember, Chile voted NO for military intervention in Iraq when a temporary member of the UN Security Council.

Anyone from the States or countries which have participated with the States in interventions should shut the fuck up and put their own war criminals and human rights abuses on trial before condemning Chile.

Speaking of which look what happened right this hour. INDH observer injured by birdshot by Carabineros.

Those overworked and overrun Carabineros may be making more irrational decisions and this can only inflame the situation on the street and among the discussion by the left/right elites and talking heads.

If spring is any indication, it may be a very HOT summer, Christmas and New Years will be strange, what happens when school is out?

If it's like 2011 when the official holiday season starts and people start travelling to the coast. And Christmas comes in to play, you get a bit of a rest bite for a few weeks until mid January. But this is a bit of a different beast I know, as that was more about bunking off school to protest about education.

so, whatever few crumbs the poor might have gotten, and they still have not gotten anything new, they more than lost in the damages from the protests.

how many people just on the other side of the fence from poverty, are going to permanently go back there?

Just in the damage done to the middle and lower class so far this month?

Those stores they burned, those companies are just going to cash their insurance checks, and open a store in a more secure location. The little buisnesses, they are just gone. the transportation system that get's them to the good paying jobs, gone.

All the damage to Centro has been horrible to watch from afar, a lot of memories there. Used to use the clinic and <SPAM WORD> burnt up. Sad to see. When the protests were smaller it used to be a game of cat and mouse, where they'd only launch tear gas if property to damage occured. Now the goal seems to be distraction to damage. What foolish aimless youths. I don't buy the conspiracies which are rampant in the Chilean community here in the UK.

To be fair probably has something to do with all the Chileans in UK repeating false lefty information and protesting outside the embassy. Probably just want them to go home as police already over stretched with Brexit.

News just in, finally a General Election to break Brexit deadlock, months after prime minister asked for it, as opposition knows it will lose.

And the elite left will be laughing to the bank and their newly reelected positions (at half the salary).

There are people owning small hotels, restaurants and souvenir stalls in Santiago that cater to tourists and so on. Of those, some of them must have been already only just breaking even. I hope for their sake some of those are smart and bold enough to sell up and get a new career right away.

Otherwise they will go on building up debt before eventually collapsing in, say, 2 or 3 years, while sucking up the profits of others. We need less of these types of businesses in Santiago now for at least some years.

The graffiti explosion is ugly for tourists, and I don't see it all getting cleaned up for years.

Other places, such as the far north or south, will also be hit because even if there is less disturbance there they have the problem that a higher % of their sales are tourists. Tourists coming to Chile will now be down.

That's simply a ton of money that will now be spent in other countries.

Dimitri Mendeleev is coming on his place, and I would be willing to bet that the Chilean government will try to use that to downplay his cancellation.
