Piñera to The Hague

On the second anniversary of the Chilean social outbreak, several European-based social, political and human rights organizations joined forces to develop a series of activities and demonstrations to be held in the cities of Amsterdam and The Hague, in the Netherlands, to demand the trial of S. Piñera for his crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.

We demand truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-repetition for the systematic violations of Human Rights committed by agents of the Chilean State, and mandated by the criminal government of S. Piñera, against citizens, in the context of the Social Outbreak of October of 2019, which to this day are unpunished.

We also demand the immediate freedom of political prisoners, mostly young social fighters, arrested and kept in pre-trial detention until today, as a result of the criminalization of legitimate social protest.

Virtual Meetings “The Thursday’s Gathering Presents”

In July 2020, after a few months break in our activities due to the Corona Pandemic, the conversation group Thursday’s Gathering and Chile Woke Up The Netherlands began their collaboration to produce the virtual meetings “The Thursday’s Gathering Presents”, instance organized to contribute with a critical and purposeful collective reflection, between Chilean people residing out of Chile and people directly linked with the social and political movements that

 want the Chilean social and political transformation, such as; academics, social and environmental activists, union labor leaders, family and defenders of political prisoners, among others. Later, from October 25th 2020, we call special meetings with independent candidates (of political parties) for the Constitutional Convention,  an organism popularly elected to write the new Chilean constitution.  

In total we produced 23 meetings with different topics. All of them are available to watch in our Youtube Channel or in “La Tertulia del Jueves” Youtube Channel.

“Freedom, Justice and Reparation for the Political Prisoners of the October Revolt”

“The Thursday’s Gathering Presents”, “Freedom, Justice and Reparation for the Political Prisoners of the October Revolt”.

With this virtual meeting we seek to denounce and make visible the existence of Political Prison in Chile, especially that caused by the abusive, disproportionate and criminal response by the Chilean State, and the criminal government of S.Piñera since October 2019. Especially, we want to contribute to the generation of concrete actions that allow us to advance towards the urgent freedom, justice and effective reparation for the political prisoners of the October Revolt, and for all the victims of political imprisonment and Human Rights violations in Chile.

To reflect on this urgent matter we are talking with: Cesar Maximiliano Moreno Donoso and his mother Gemita Donoso, Political Prisoner of the October Revolt. Osvaldo Duran, father of José Ignacio Durán, Political Prisoner of the October Revolt, Oriana Astudillo, Counselor of the family of the student political prisoner of the October Revolt Carlos Peyrin.  Also, with Rubén Rivas, member of the Group of Relatives of Political Prisoners of the October Revolt “Guacoldas”, and Isabel Mayorga, Human Rights Observer of the Ethical Commission against Torture in Chile, in Valdivia region.
