Marcha CUT, 25 de agosto.
Fotografias marcha de culminación de los dos dias de paro convocados por la CUT (Central Unitaria de Trabajadores) que contó con una masiva convocatoria, especialmente por parte de los estudiantes chilenos.
This is a series of photos taken on August 25th at the march to conmemorate the end of the two day national strike called by the “CUT” (Central Unitaria de Trabajadores) a multi-sindical organization.
Although the total numbers of participants vary depending on the estimates of the CUT (600.000 nation wide), government and police (175.000) , it was for sure a massive concurrence backed up by the Student Movement (who have been protesting for more than 3 months now) and various civil organizations.
Even though most of the march was held in a pacific way, which culminated in a cultural act, some masked rioters showed up with intentions of provoking the police, damaging public and private property and, in some cases, even attacking the pacific protesters that were trying to restrain them.
