The people of Chile have had brutality heaped on them for generations, from the CIA's, (Capitalism's Invisible Army) coup, that installed the butcher Pinochet, through the neo-liberal/free-market policies forced down the throats of the people by the American financial Mafia. However, like people the world over, they take only so much, and then they start to kick back. You will not find much about the struggle of the people of Chile in our babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media. No, they are much too pre-occupied with more important things such as royal babies, sporting spectaculars, and hyping up hate against those poor and vulnerable on benefits.
The struggle by the people in Chile is just one part of a growing world wide hatred of this insane system of exploitation of the majority, by the rich few. A growing awareness that we can change things, we have the power, and when we come together, we are unstoppable. This world belongs to us, from the bricks to the the mansions, from the bicycles to the cargo ships, we made them all, we can surely decide how we will use them.
