Hundreds of people returned to protest this Friday in the mythical Plaza Italia in Santiago, five days after it was decided in a historic plebiscite change the Constitution inherited from the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship (1973-1990), with almost 80% approval.

Carrying canvases and beating pots, the protesters demanded the release of those detained during the wave of protests that erupted in October 2019, in addition to urgent reforms that help alleviate the effects of the serious economic crisis that affects the country.

Pending issues

Juan Manuel, 74-year-old retired and participant in the demonstration, assured that the victory in the plebiscite “was only the first step on a long scale” and that now “the most difficult thing is coming” in the election of constituents, who will draft the new Chilean Fundamental Charter within a period of two years.

“We have to stay on the street“Manuel told Efe,” and now we have the mission of demanding the freedom of all the prisoners of the outbreak. “

Since October last year, the Prosecutor’s Office has formalized a total of 5,084 people for various crimes committed in the marches, of which 648 are in preventive prison and 725 have already been convicted.

Violation of human rights

Dozens of relatives of detainees gathered in the capital’s prisons and justice centers this week to demand changes in precautionary measures, speed in the judicial processes and more visits.

Furthermore, there are more than 4,600 open cases against the security forces for alleged human rights violations, but only 75 agents have been charged.

Opposition parliamentarians presented last Thursday a project that sought pardon to those who committed serious crimes during the social outbreak, but was rejected by the Government because it would imply “justifying the violence.”

Unlike last Sunday, where the Chilean Police it withdrew from Plaza Italia due to the numerous participants in the celebrations after the plebiscite, this afternoon cars launches water and launches gases tried to deter the concentration of protesters.
