RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - In Chile, protests over the consequences of the coronavirus curfews are growing. They began in the communities of El Bosque and Villa Francia in the Chilean capital region. Last Monday, residents engaged in street clashes with the police after the latter responded to the protests with violence.
The protests were triggered by the fact that many residents of these communities, with an already precarious living situation, have nothing to eat due to the measures imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. El Bosque has been quarantined since mid-April. The police used tear gas grenades . . .
