Ainda a vaga de protestos na América Latina

Why Latin America Was Primed to Explode, por Moisés Naím and Brian Winter (Foreign Affairs):

At this early stage, it is impossible to say how important foreign interference has been in igniting or sustaining the protests.According to the Chilean newspaper La Tercera, Chilean police have identified several Venezuelans and Cubans who participated in violent attacks in Santiago in mid-October, to cite one example. But the scale and unrelenting nature of the protests, which brought more than one million of Chile’s 18 million citizens into the streets on October 25, suggest that the root causes are large and structural. The focus on conspiracy theories, moreover, risks giving politicians and other elites a handy scapegoat.

A questão dos cubanos e venezuelanos não foi confirmada nem desmentida. Não me admiraria muito mais realmente não se mete um milhão de pessoas na rua sem uma razao forte.
