Giorgio Jackson: Chile’s anti-neoliberalism protests, Pinochet’s constitution has trapped Chile! (E813)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the founder of the Democratic Revolution Party and member of the Chamber of Deputies of Chile, Giorgio Jackson, about the ongoing protests against neoliberal US-backed Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, the protesters’ demands, Pinera’s attempts to polarize debate, why the Chilean constitution is not fit to serve the needs of the majority, Chile’s problem with inequality, neoliberalism, privatization, and more! Next, we speak to the author of ‘The Best Democracy Money Can Buy,’ Greg Palast, about the coup in Bolivia against Evo Morales, the US’ motivations for the coup, racism in Latin American right-wing politics, the regime-change attempt by the US against Venezuela and Nicolas Maduro, and why the 2020 US elections will not be free elections. Finally, we speak to award-winning director Wash Westmoreland about his new film, ‘Earthquake Bird.’
