CHILE UNREST ENTERS 5OTH DAY Dec 08, 2019 0 988 12345 Demonstrators clash with riot police during a protest against the government of Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, in Santiago, on Saturday. Thousands took to the streets of Chile’s capital on Friday for a demonstration that marked 50 days since the outbreak of the country’s worst civil unrest in decades. Furious Chileans have for weeks been protesting social and economic inequality, and against an entrenched political elite that comes from a small number of the wealthiest families in the country, among other issues. The crisis is the worst in three decades of Chilean democracy and has led to 26 deaths and more than 12,000 injuries, according to the Organization of American States, with another 20,600 people detained.
