Photos: Sydney in solidarity with the Chilean people's struggle

Issue 

Hundreds of people marched through Sydney to show solidarity with Chilean protesters demanding the resignation of President Sebastian Pinera, on November 2.

Up to 1.5 million Chileans mobilised to demand Pinera's resignation on October 25, in what was the largest protest in the nation's history. It came after weeks of protest triggered by a rise in subway fares.

There were several cultural performances at the end of the march, including a traditional dance performed by members of Sydney's Kurdish community to show solidarity between the people's struggles in Chile and Rojava.
