How The Price Of The Metro Sparked Mass Protests In Chile

In early October, the Chilean government raised the price of the metro, triggering the largest protests in Chile's history. Latino USA speaks with Chilean investigative journalist Paulette Desormeaux, who's been covering the protests and speaking with Chileans about why they're in the streets and what they want to see change in Chile. We talk about the roots of inequality in Chile, the legacy of the Pinochet dictatorship, and why a rock song from the eighties has become an anthem for protesters.
