Chile is going to the polls on April 11. The Revolutionary Workers Party (PTR) is running, and their new one-minute video has a clear message: Not one cent for the cops!
In late October, Chileans voted overwhelmingly to draft a new constitution. A constitutional convention will be elected in April. The bourgeois and reformist parties are hoping to rejuvenate the neoliberal regime. The Revolutionary Workers Party (PTR) is campaigning to defend the banners of last year’s revolt.
Trotskyists in Chile have won the democratic right to stand as candidates next April for the convention that will draft a new constitution. They will bring to the gathering an independent revolutionary working-class perspective missing from the large Left parties that have been collaborating with the bourgeois regime so it can hold on to power.
A year after hundreds of thousands took to the streets of Chile demanding an end to the neoliberal regime, Chileans voted overwhelmingly in favor of drafting a new constitution.
Lester Calderon is an industrial worker and member of the Revolutionary Workers Party (PTR) in Chile. In a speech given at the international rally of the Trotskyist Fraction this May Day, he explains how the government of President Sebastián Piñera, with the complicity of several “left” parties, has used the pandemic to further suppress the mass uprising that began last year.
An Interview with Dauno Totoro of the Revolutionary Workers Party (PTR)
The young leader of the Chilean left is persecuted for having called for Piñera’s resignation in a public assembly.
The massive uprising in Chile has entered its second month. However, two of the demonstrators’ main demands have not been met: the dismissal of President Piñera and the convening of a constituent assembly. What’s next?
While there have been multiple attempts to tame and repress Chile’s mobilizations, they are still underway. The outcome of this uprising could change the political situation in Latin America and beyond.
