first, sorry by my english.
40 thousands anti globalization and anti bush protesters rallied in Santiago, Chile, against the APEC reunion in that city. this is the biggest manifestation in that country from Pinochet's years.
the manifestation in the center of the city, convcated by the chilean social forum, comunist party and libertarians, marxists and left's organizations, finished with a open festival.
to this moment the action has been pacific, but in the end, the action od "infiltrated" violents groups and a similar answer of the chilean cops, destroy the act and the beautiful demostration.
the ressoults of this is a 189 peoples arrested, a lot of this injured, corporated and independent reporters are too arrested and a pacific demostration direct to the ground.
the government says "we ocupated the racional force for this acts", in the same moment wath the murderer Bush alowing in the pudahuel airport.
mc donalds, the offices of the reactionarian Universidad Católica, and banks are atacked with "paint bombs", rocks and molotovs bombs.
in november17th, the students do similar protests in the cener of the city, but the police violence are similar to today. the resoults of that: 379 students arrested.
chile is not a democratic country!!
chile is not a democratic country!!

Earlier tonight, Yahoo! News was running a 139-photo slide show on the protest. Of those, I only saw 1 that was the authoritarian-socialist crowd with hammer-and-sickle banners. Most of the rest was logoless militants. I don't get why that's the main picture here.

okay, cool! I didn't mean to criticize *you*, just let people here know that the whole thing wasn't some hammer-and-sickle festival. Thank you for posting it.
Gracias! Gracias! Gracias!

gracias todos mis hermanas y hermanos chileanos!

you have done what needs to be done: humiliate and heap scorn on the stinking lying bloodthirsty shithead George W. Bush, the WORST elected official on planet earth. he is a monster, a fascist, a racist bastard. and the peoples of the world, UNITED, will bring him down.
