Curfew in Chile
The Chilean authorities have imposed a curfew in the Maule and Bio Bio regions, in the centre-south of the country, 37 hours after the earthquake that has caused over 708 deaths... The authorities lack of help for the victims has unleashed the anger of the people that have been struck, pushing them to loot supermarkets, chemists and shops to find what they need.
This has pushed the authorities to react, not to help the population, but to repress and safeguard the interests of the big commercial chains. For this reason a curfew has been declared from 21 to 6 in the morning to allow them to guarantee order and the protection of the large commercial centres and supermarkets with the justification of protecting one of the inventions of the neo-pinochestista system : the so-called " middle classes ".
