Very large gathering today at Plaza Itália, and they're actively resisting the police efforts to shoo them off. They usually are gone by sunset. Let's see how it turns up.
Can you see the Plaza from your house? Did it look like a mostly peaceful gathering? Keep us updated. I don't see any news reports on it for now. Large means 10,000 or 100,000 - not sure what counts as a large protest these days.
I can see it from my place. The protestors are dispersing as we speak. I don't know the numbers, but it was larger than anything but the 1.2 million one. If I had to guess, I would say it was North of 300,000. It was the same as always, lots of peaceful protestors with arsonists among them.

It seems the media was given the order from the government to chill around the time the cabinet was fired. It was after that the non-24 hour news Chile stations went back to "normal" programming (ma' o meno') and the two 24 hour channels did not show what was happening in real time in the night and morning hours unless something was sooo big to make it overly obvious.

Yep, I believe it was mentioned here previously. They're not doing a great job in terms of going against the "TV lies' campaign that the protestors are pushing. Social media is a nest of bots, but it's coverage isn't shut down out of the blue.

I currently have like 5 chilean news channels, and not one is showing a live shot of plaza Italia or even talking about it.

WTF!!!
This has been going on since the 25th. The last day they have showed the protestors in the evenings was on the 24th.

Someone decided to make a dashboard type site to show a couple of the popular news live streams at the same time (one of them being the CIMA gallery webcam over Plaza Italia). I thought I'd leave the link for anyone that finds it useful.

Thanks for that, very useful.

Still get ticked-off by the foreign press coverage.
This was on Reuters before they removed it. I added the comments.

Catapult?

Sharpie and his mafia not happy, the agreement doesn't represent what was demanded.

The commie party are not only the richest political party but have the permanent arrogance that only their way is the way, fuck compromise or even the thought of sitting down with Chile Vamos. Fuck them. I hope what Chile intelligence agencies that exist will implicate them in the continuing violence, looting and vandalism.

What a dick, wristrockets are what they are (term in the US anyways) and with metal ball ammo, can be quite devastating. Nitpicking strawman shit again and is this person even here living this reality...

And they just created "Convergencia Social" (the party he's leaving) last year from four other tiny fragmented parties inside FA. Idealism is the principal enemy of the left.

He is not a communist, Convergencia Social is an "libertarian ecosocialist" party ("libertarian" as in "we prefer socialism without an authoritarian state", not US libertarian).

LOL.

I'm glad I don't live in Valpo which has essentially been destroyed and also during Sharpies reign lost more than half the cruise business to San Antonio.

BTW, the very long time commie mayor of San Antonio has exercised fiscal restraint. Already cancelled NYE fireworks and the growing popular Carnival so that San Antonio can be repaired after the "peaceful" marches trashed San Antonio proper, Barrancas and Lllolleo.
