Chilean Army deploys vehicles to Santiago streets as death toll in riots mounts

  • Published on Oct 21, 2019
  • The Chilean Army has declared another curfew as it struggles to contain violence that was triggered by transport fare hikes in Santiago, but has since spilled over beyond the capital, fueled by outrage over social inequality.
    To prevent looting and arson attacks, thousands of armed troops have been patrolling the capital over the weekend, under the state of emergency introduced in Chile for the first time since the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. Following another day of clashes with protesters, the general in charge of security in Santiago announced an extension of the curfew until 6am on Monday morning.

    With all the instability in many sectors of life here on earth, it's important to be sure of the most import thing in your life, personal eternal salvation. And for that you need to go to Jesus! Only Jesus can deliver on that issue. He will give you inner peace as well so you can cope with all the troubles that might come your way.....If you are interested and need some teaching on what salvation in Jesus is all about.....the bible teaching site, teachingfaith com has a fine series titled "change of mind'. It's in ebook and streaming videos format. All the content there is free.

    The weak, always resort to military aggression. Lucifer lies, to deceive, if that doesn't work, he resorts to violence; even murder. John 8:44/ 1Peter 5:8

    Troops won't do any good unless they're willing to employ extreme, violent force against the rioters and anarchists.

    Capitalism kills. Down with right wing hierarchies, up with democratic egalitarianism. Good luck freedom fighters, the police and military are THE problem around the world protecting the corporate and political classes from economic and legal consequences.

      Piñera was a backer of Pinochet.
      His brother was a member of Pinochets government.
      He never left.

    Funny how these are riots, but the wanton destruction and looting in HK were 'protests'.

      @bismuth1985 Gotcha, thanks for taking the time to post clarification, apologies for my thickness :)

    • bismuth1985
      bismuth1985 24 days ago +1

      @Sandor Bronn that's literally my point msm sees China as communist and Hong Kong as a bastion of the free market rising up against their communist overlords.
      So they see what is happening in Hong Kong as favourable.
      In Chile el pueblo is rising up against the corporate elite most of which were backers or members of Pinochets government.
      So the MSM sees these as riots.

    • Sandor Bronn
      Sandor Bronn 24 days ago +1

      @bismuth1985 Your categorisation of China as 'communist' is a super-narrow, MSM-view of what is actually a very complex arrangement and compromise between the two systems.
      It's like saying "well, the US is a democratic republic", when this is merely what the signs say. It's more of an oligarchic kleptocracy, just like every other bloody government since the farewell to kings.

      Chile has a right wing government. China is communist.
      Corporate media will always paint the left as bad guys.

    Typical call out the military before you even stopped and talked to the people.
    Governments across the planet have got to understand they are on the way out. That the people are fed up and enough is enough!

      President Piñeras brother was a member of Pinochets government. The president was a backer of Pinochet.
      This is simply fascists being fascists.

    Imagine in Russia or China, the fake news would have a field day with this,
    CNN: “Watch Russian/Chinese soldiers preparing to kill protesters” but when police brutality end protests in France, US, or any country with the “right” leadership then there’s no problem.

      S. Biswas I didn’t mean right-wing I meant their chosen leadership which doesn’t matter if they are antifa or neo-nazis if they do the bidding of the US government then all media in US supports them.
