Burying Pinochet's Constitution: In Chile, feminists take the lead

04 Jul 2021  |  L'Express
Feminist activist Alondra Carrillo and other elected constituents are set to draft a new fundamental law in Chile to replace the current constitution, a legacy of the Pinochet era. The Constituent Assembly, with a significant feminist presence, aims to address neoliberalism and ensure citizen rights from a feminist perspective. The feminist movement has been instrumental in the social unrest and protests against inequality and privatized public services in Chile. The movement's impact was highlighted by the LasTesis collective's global protest choreography. The upcoming constitutional reform is seen as a culmination of a long struggle for women's rights, with the potential to redefine women's roles in society.

Chileans forced to dip into their retirement savings

25 Apr 2021  |  lefigaro.fr
The Chilean Congress in Santiago has passed a reform allowing citizens to withdraw up to 10% of their retirement savings to cope with the crisis caused by the pandemic. This comes as over 80% of the country has been under strict lockdown for a month to contain the rise in Covid-19 cases. If enacted, this will be the third such initiative in nine months. President Sebastian Pinera's government, identified as liberal right, has announced plans to block the reform by filing an appeal with the Constitutional Court, which is set to decide in the coming days. The President's stance has led to widespread protests, some resulting in clashes with law enforcement. A recent poll shows 80% of the population supports the measure, which allows withdrawals between 1 million pesos (1160 euros) and 4.3 million pesos.

In Chile, Pinochet's ultimate defeat

03 Nov 2020  |  L'Express
On the evening of October 25th, Chileans voted overwhelmingly in favor of changing their constitution, which had been a focal point of protestor demands during a broad social movement. The constitution, crafted in 1980 by Jaime Guzman and ratified in a fraudulent referendum, had entrenched market-oriented policies favored by the 'Chicago Boys' and their neoliberal theories. Despite political and economic stability, the social neglect resulted in significant precarity for the middle class and poor. The current pension system, a legacy of the Chicago Boys, has proven inadequate, leading to legislative measures allowing citizens to withdraw from their retirement savings. The elite economic beneficiaries of the current system will participate in the upcoming constituent assembly, with economist Joaquin Lavin, a Chicago School alumnus, leading in presidential polls for November 2021.

Jeanine Añez, symbol of a weakened state

27 Jul 2020  |  lexpress.fr
Jeanine Añez, the interim president of Bolivia, has been tested positive for Covid-19 amidst a surging pandemic in the country. Her administration is facing criticism for its handling of the health crisis, economic downturn, and institutional instability. Añez, who initially promised a break from her predecessor Evo Morales, is now seen as authoritarian and divisive. Her government is accused of corruption and favoring agribusiness elites. The political landscape is tense with the Movement for Socialism (MAS) actively opposing her, and the upcoming elections are uncertain. Añez is trailing in the polls and considering an alliance with centrist Carlos Mesa, who is not particularly enthusiastic about the idea.
