Urgent Action Update: Referendum Called and State of Emergency Ended (Chile: UA 137.19)

November 22, 2019

On 15 November President Sebastián Piñera announced an agreement among all political parties to hold a referendum in 2020 about a new Constitution, which was part of the main demand of those protesting since 18 October. The President previously decreed the end of the state of emergency, effectively taking the army from the streets on 27 October. We are closely following the dire situation in the country and will set a new campaign on this human rights crisis.

We have received updated information regarding this case and require no further action from the Urgent Action Network. Thank you to all those who sent appeals. For more information about this case, please see the Word/PDF attachments below or email [email protected]. ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
