They do have legitimate gripes but as with everything here not many people can comprehend the notion of ALL actions have consequences, or not sure if it's that or they are completely ignorant of their surroundings and how things are connected. So many are just oblivious and in their own little worlds. This movement is kind of paradoxical, it's like in theory they are all together, but at the same time it's all about the individual who is generally oblivious to so many things around them.cali_chile48 wrote: ↑Wed Nov 06, 2019 8:18 amThe protest organizers certainly have some legitimate gripes, but they should come up with different ways of protesting that don't interrupt general commerce.....maybe they should take some lessons from Gandhi and King....sit-ins at city hall or regional offices, for example, perhaps calling for boycotts of specific products or businesses....but the Chilean way is to burn tires in the road. Really stupid sometimes.
Peaceful protests like Ghandi or King require a level of understanding not generally found in your average tire burner in Chile, boycotts require solidarity and a greater level of understanding amongst everyone, as with many things here lack of education amongst other things means these protesters are not even close to those levels of strategy.
I am still trying to work out my theory on that one, so it's open for criticisms.
