Campaign against the Constitutional Convention denounced in Chile

Santiago de Chile, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) The Chilean Human Rights Commission (CCHDH) denounced the campaign of a minority and powerful sector against the work being done by the convention in charge of drafting the new constitution in the country.

According to a statement from the CCHDH, these power groups have the complicity of the mass media and only seek to defend their privileges and the status quo that has affected the vast majority of the population so much in the exercise of their basic rights such as health, education, social security and decent work.

The text, supported by more than 60 social organizations and published by Radio Universidad, urges the population to support the work of this body so that it can fulfill without pressure its objective of drafting a proposal for a fundamental charter to replace the one in force since the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990).

He recalls that moving towards a new constitution is an undeniable achievement of millions of people who took to the streets in 2019 to demand a change to the neoliberal model imposed by that regime.

Installed last July 4, the convention has a deadline until mid-year to write the text, which must be submitted to a plebiscite with mandatory suffrage.

The new Chilean president, Gabriel Boric, declared during his inauguration on March 11 that his government will enthusiastically accompany the long-sought constituent process.

“We need a Constitution that unites us, that we feel as our own. A Constitution that, unlike the one that was imposed with blood, fire and fraud by the dictatorship, is born in democracy, in a parity manner, with the participation of the indigenous peoples”, the President said.
