Chile Declares State of Emergency for 90 days

Post by admin » Wed Mar 18, 2020 11:14 am

The president of Chile has invoked a 90 day state of emergency or catastrofe for the entire country.

https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/ ... trofe.html

pay close attention to the local news, as they may announce specific measures on very short notice both nationally and locally.

will post more as the details are released.

This is the same law used after the 2010 earthquake vs. the one used during the social crisis; but it effectively has the same powers.

military can be deployed as needed for logistics and security.

government can freeze prices, and suspend certain private property rights as needed.

freedom of movement can be restricted, including curfews.

I just heard a rumor that Piñara was going go quarantine the country by sections later in the week. Does anyone have solid information on this? I'm traveling and I don't want to get stuck somewhere unpleasant.

Santo Domingo, Cartegena, El Quisco have variously closed or called for the closing of beaches, parks, hotels, etc. and San Antonio CUT is demanding that the cities be locked down to prevent Santiaguinos escaping Santiasco from coming.

Ha I was just reading that , stupid idiotic
bourgeois Camila Vallejo is irrelevant in the big picture I know, but once again clearly shows she just doesn't have a clue about the real world of small businesses owners or any business owner at the moment who is suffering and seeing their whole lives/businesses uprooted and destroyed too. stfu Camila .

Just in time to invoke it for the election.

If they extend it through October, we would have almost a full year under some form of martial law.

which sounds terrible on the surface, except "martial law" in Chile is not enforced all that much more than "regular law" in Chile.
