Activism abroad: the digital footprint of protest

While millions of Chilean citizens flood the streets of Santiago in the greatest social uprising since the return of democracy, online activism also takes place in the center of London. Back in the 70s, another generation of Chileans, exiled by Pinochet, marched in Trafalgar Square pleading to stop the massacre that was taking place back home.

This time, the tools are different. Twitter and Facebook are used to full advantage, as well as the signing of online petitions and streaming live videos on Instagram.

One thing, however, has not changed. The lyrics of “El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido” (The people united will never be defeated) –a chant that encourages us to remain together– is still sung with a lump in the throat.
