HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL
In October 2019, a massive protest movement began in Chile against a savage neoliberal model that widens social inequalities and disregards the democratic collective processes. Since then, in the face of popular demands, the only response from the government has been the deployment of the army in the streets which, together with the police, initiated a bloody repression against the demonstrators.
The CETIM intervened during the 43rd session of the Human Rights Council to denounce the serious and systematic human rights’ violations, urging the Chilean government to put an end to the repression and calling on the Human Rights Council to activate its appropriate mechanisms and procedures.
