Demo In Chile With Constitution Vote Near

Share

Approximately 500 people gathered for the third consecutive Friday to protest in the Chilean capital of Santiago, gradually resuming the weekly demonstrations that marked 2019, to call for a change of constitution, better healthcare system and education.

The protesters chanted and played music, some clashing with police after a small group of people tried to burn a bus.

Police employed water cannons and tear gas against protesters.

Demonstrators returned to the streets as Chile is heading to vote a plebiscite on October 25 that was postponed due to the pandemic restrictions.

In the new vote, Chileans will be asked if they want a new constitution and if it should be drafted by the existing Congress or a new constituent assembly
