PAISAJE INVISIBLE: The fight for justice after the revolution.
Credits: javier alvarez
Updated: 02/16/21
Location: SANTIAGO
October 18th, 2019 is the day that marks the beginning of one of the bloodiest eras in Chile since the return of democracy in 1990. A seemingly small act of raising the subway fare was instead a symbol of the violence of Chile's social inequality. It brought millions to the street in protest, leaving looted cities, destroyed infrastructure, and 42 people dead during the first six months of manifestations. Lives taken as victims of police brutality, stray bullets, accidents, or fires, forever changed the history of an entire country but also left families fractured by the lack of justice.

The Chilean government denies that the current administration has violated any human rights and that there are also no political prisoners.
