Protests in Chile
The wave of protests had flared in mid-October due to the increase in subway ticket prices by 30 Chilean pesos (the equivalent of 4 euro cents) in the Chilean capital Santiago. It spread to the whole country and there were demands that went beyond the provision of fares. The demonstrations were peaceful at first, but became increasingly radical over the days. Many protested for low wages and pensions, high prices, and impossible tuition. According to media reports, at least 19 people lost their lives during the demonstrations.
