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.

I have been wanting to move away from santiago for awhile. Think I will finally do it when my lease is up. Any suggestions? I have always enjoyed La Serena.

Whatever this is all about, its nothing to do with a $30 fare raise.
I dont think there is another "democracy" where this level of violence would be tolerated.
Even if they close the metro over the weekend, the "manifestations" will just start back up again on Monday morning.

I also gave nothing hindering is from moving, other than the lease, but we might as well nice elsewhere if things get really nasty. Hopefully it won't get to that, though

I think that is an important point, all this shit is Santiasco, as I said before, just another tranquil Friday night here on the coast.

A real civil war, well that is a different animal.

Agree, there is probably more to it, but I can't find anything that tries to explain it.

Firefighters and carabineros are allegedly being "acuaetelados", going to their bases. This seems like an emergency state procedure. Keeping an eye on the news.
