Several people were seen arrested as hundreds protested against the renewed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal in Santiago on Tuesday.

People marched, holding anti-TPP banners and chanting slogans with police firing water cannons to disperse the crowds.

Protesters say TPP is anti-democratic and favours multinational corporations at the expense of domestic interests. They also argue that it threatens healthcare by potentially increasing the prices of medical drugs, as well as threatening jobs, the environment and workers' rights.
