Chile protests: "People are fed up"


Eleven people have died so far in Chile since street protests escalated in Santiago over the weekend. A state of emergency already in place in the capital is to be extended to cities in the country's north and south. Chilean France 24 journalist Catalina Marchant De Abreu explains why the protests are happening now, and whether they are linked to similar movements in other Latin American Countries.
