Protesters took to the streets again on Monday following three weeks of unrest in the #Chile’s capital of #Santiago. Protesters met at Plaza Italia, the central square, which they have now renamed ‘Dignity Plaza.’

Protesters can be seen extinguishing #teargas canisters by collecting them in water jugs while others throw them back at police who use water cannons to disperse the crowds.

The protests, which originally started over a hike in metro fees has now spiralled into anti-government clashes, with police using rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons against protesters. More than 20 people have died, and nearly 200 have sustained eye injuries.
