Chile protests: Thousands rally demanding government

People in Chile have returned to the streets in advance of the anniversary of last year’s massive protests.
It was mainly peaceful during the day, but turned violent with police firing tear gas and water cannon.
Demonstrators say they are still waiting for the government to fix social inequality and rewrite the constitution.
Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman reports from Santiago, Chile.

    Radical Leftists/Communist just like what's happening in Thailand and, of course, in the U.S. These violent "movements" must be opposed.

    Many people who protest do not know what the constitution is.

    Problems can be solved with new laws and with the will of politicians, but socialist movements have deceived people with their populism
