More than 400 people in Chile have suffered eye injuries after being shot by police while protesting against inequality. They allege that police deliberately aimed teargas canisters and rubber bullets at protesters’ faces. 
We follow Carlos Puebla, a former construction worker who was blinded in one eye and subsequently lost his job.

    This extremely skewed narrative you are presenting really bothers me as a Chilean. I will never trust The Guardian again.

    Always wear ballistic protection when you’re attending serious protests— helmets, goggles, body pads and armor, even groin protection. They can save your life as well as save your body parts.

    What are you doing today to better your self tomorrow?

    The Pandemic(Covid-19) has shown us how important it is NOT to only depend on your job for financial security.
    its important now than ever to find other ways to bring in income and build wealth. That could be achieved by
    investing, starting a Bussiness, or even Reselling stuff.

    Are you a complete beginner to investing and have no idea where to begin?

    You can reach me via the comment box or send me a friend request let’s make the best of whatever we can.

    Canada – Everyone knows Chili's Security Forces are trained by the Israeli's. During the George Floyd Protest several Journalists were also shot in the eyes. When will these barbaric acts stop?.
