Seriously, though. My dig is in the middle of a triangle formed by 3 stations in 3 metro lines. I have my windows closed due to the smoke.

MANO DURO is in the future of Chile as even the Android/IOS robots of the Millenial generation will be clamoring for things getting back to normal.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Color revolutions are foreign intelligence agencies creating false crisis' and disorder in a target country to install a new compliant regime or force the current regime to bow down to what those outside forces want economic/political./social policy-wise.

OK, this is way more coordinated. Three more metro stations on fire, it seems the protestors have used molotov cocktails on them. There're also reports of markets being sacked. One Express de Líder on San Joaquin.

The talking heads are having a contest on who can make the most sense of this. Multiple simultaneous sites of arson or vandalism, definitely some urban warfare planning went into this to divide the police forces and bomberos.

Yep, there's at least some level of coordination on the attacks.

The Enel fire is under control. The interesting part is that the fire was mostly on the emergency exit, which was supposed to be fireproof. T13 reports that the stairs had been painted with a flammable paint.

The death report was fake, it seems.

[EDIT]

Each source says something. It's soon unclear at this moment.

They won't be riding for a while :D :D

But seriously, public support won't last after everyone needs to go to work like sardines on Monday. That's likely the case, as metro is closed for the weekend, and they may choose it longer if needed.
