On Wednesday, demonstrators in the Chilean cities of Valdivia and Valparaiso threw objects at riot police, who responded with physical force, water cannon, and rubber bullets, as the fishermen protested the “Fisheries Act,” also known as the “Longueira Act” after Chile’s economic minister, which was introduced in 2013 and has resulted in the privatization of marine sources across the country.
