Chile

A Chile solidarity protest in Sydney on October 27.

Chile has blatantly breached its international obligations to preserve human rights, and Australian business, politicians and the community must not condone those violations, says academics, journalists and activists. 

Members of the Chilean community and supporters held a protest in Fremantle on November 16 against the Chilean government's repression of recent protests.

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

Former secret police agent under dictator General Augusto Pinochet Adriana Rivas will face court again on March 1 to see if she is extradited back to Chile, where she is facing charges relating to alleged torture and kidnapping offences.

Adriana Rivas is a former National Intelligence Directorate (DINA) agent living in Sydney. DINA was Chile’s intelligence bureau during General Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship and is known as Pinochet’s Gestapo due to its cruelty and mass assassinations.
