Chile, Santiago
November 19, 2019 at 05:32 GMT +00:00 · Published

Clashes broke out between demonstrators and riot police in Santiago on Monday, as thousands reportedly took to the streets to mark a month of protests with wide grievances.

Footage shows protesters, protecting themselves with gas masks and helmets, throwing projectiles and using laser pointers against police forces. The latter were seen using water cannons to disperse demonstrators.

One of the protesters was holding a sign reading "Your bullets can't stop us."

The current wave of demonstrations, considered to be the largest in decades, was sparked in October by the now-suspended metro fare hike.
