Civil unrest in Chile has continued for over a month now, originally in repsonse to a hike in subway fares. Now, the protests are widespread, centering on political and economic inequities experienced in Chile.

Human rights abuses have proliferated without consequence. 

KBOO's Althea Billings spoke to Joshua Tucker, a freelance journalist in Chile who has been capturing the protests and those which came before producing a documentary called "Veins of Resistance."
