A protest will be held in the capital Santiago on Tuesday, October 16, to denounce human rights violations carried out by the military during the Pinochet dictatorship (1973-1990). Demonstrators will march around La Moneda, the presidential palace. The event will likely remain peaceful, although some low-level violence cannot be ruled out.
The protest was called for following a speech made on October 13, which seemed to praise certain high-level members of the military during the Pinochet regime.
Individuals in Santiago are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
