Chile is a long, narrow country in South America bounded by the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It encompasses deserts in the north and glaciers in the south, is full of mountains, and is prone to earthquakes. It has also been the site of numerous confrontations between the most vicious leading edge of neoliberalism (the Pinochet dictatorship being emblematic of this) and the brave, concerted resistance of working-class Chileans and indigenous people like the Mapuche. I’ve visited once, in 2013.
