Protesters vandalized the car in which Jaime Manalić was mobilized, whom they also called a killer.
In recent days, protests that had their epicenter on the Piazza di Italia in Santiago de Chile were scattered to expand to other points in the city, especially the municipality of Providence, a commercial area of the middle and upper middle classes.
The mass of people showing up on the streets, which was very small this Thursday, also diminished, and was eventually severely repressed by law enforcement following the excesses of which the neighborhood was subjected on Wednesday.
On this day, hundreds gathered near the Costanera Center shopping mall adjacent to the Great Torre Santiago, the largest in Latin America, and walked quietly east to reach the wealthy Las Condes commune.
However, law enforcement agencies stopped the advance and dispersed the demonstrations, throwing water and tear gas and firing rubber balls.
In some corners, some fierce protesters formed barricades with fire and there were some robberies to trade, although the excesses were very minor Thursday.
There were health officials at the World Health Organization (WHO) regional headquarters and a group of carriers cut some roads to protest the city fees they have to pay. [1
