Chile

Girls started a revolution

People throwing rocks at the police, riots, arson… streets swarmed with thousands of protesters – these are the scenes from Chile, where a nation wide unrest had shaken the government. 

As seen in a video published on Twitter, in the front rows of the revolution were mostly high school girls.

 

„To think that it all started with these brave girls. Heroes do not wear capes or masks, they carry backpacks“, wrote one Twitter user under a video showing a group of high school girls storming the metro in early October.

After the government announced that the metro rush hour prices would rise by 0.30 pesos ($0.04), middle school students started to do what they do best, they complained on social media and started a social media campaign in which they called on people to jump subway turnstiles in rejection of the transit fare hikes.

As seen in a video, mostly girls were leading the protest and stormed the metro, which in retrospective, can be seen as a Chilean version of Storming on the Bastille.

After this act of civil disobedience, protests in Chile spread like wildfire leaving broken glass and bricks littered streets all around the country.

This is the worst unrest Chile has faced since Pinochet, and government had instituted curfew under martial law,

Santiago, capital of Chile, looked like a war zone in last couple of days.

As helicopters clattered overhead and army truck convoys rumbled through the city, armed men in masks prowled the streets of Santiago, firing at protesters defying nights of curfew under martial law.

The death toll in Chile rose to 19 on Thursday as violent demonstrations continued despite the government’s decision to cancel a subway fare increase.

People are protesting against social inequality and President Sebastian Pinera announced concessions, including rolling back the fare hike, an increase in the minimum wage and putting an increase in electricity prices on hold until next year.
