Chile: Protesters Collect Tear Gas Canisters in Water Jugs During Clashes With Police

Protesters took to the streets again on Monday following three weeks of unrest in the Chilean capital of Santiago. Protesters met at Plaza Italia, the central square, which they have now renamed ‘Dignity Plaza.’

Demonstrators can be seen extinguishing tear gas canisters by collecting them in water jugs while others throw them back at police who use water cannons to disperse the crowds.

The demonstrations, which originally started over a hike in metro fees has now spiralled into anti-government clashes, with police using rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons against protesters. More than 20 people have died, and nearly 200 have sustained eye injuries.

The government has announced plans to change the dictatorship-era constitution, but protesters have expressed scepticism.
