Anti-government protesters in Chile gathered in Santiago to protest against the government on Friday. Police deployed a water cannon truck as they attempted to disperse demonstrators on the streets of the capital.

A student protest over a modest increase in subway fares on October 18 has turned into a much larger and broader movement with a long list of demands that largely have to do with the wide gap between the rich and ordinary Chileans.

Residents have called for reforms to health care, education, the pension system and even the constitution, which dates back to 1980 and the military dictatorship.

At least 27 people have been killed since the protests began.
