Amnesty Netherlands: Urgent Action

Amnesty International

Chile, respect freedom of expression!

Since October 18, 2019, mass demonstrations have been taking place in the streets of Chile in response to the price increase for metro tickets. Chileans are furious about the high cost of living and inequality. The President of Chile has declared a state of emergency and has set a curfew. The army was deployed to keep demonstrators under control. At least 15 people have already died and 1,400 people have been arrested, including minors and dozens of peaceful demonstrators.

Call on the Chilean authorities to meet the demands of the protesters and to respect the right to freedom of expression!
