How The Price Of The Metro Sparked Mass Protests In Chile
In early October, the Chilean government raised the price of the metro, triggering the largest protests in Chile's history. Latino USA speaks with Chilean investigative journalist Paulette Desormeaux, who's been covering the protests and speaking with Chileans about why they're in the streets and what they want to see change in Chile. We talk about the roots of inequality in Chile, the legacy of the Pinochet dictatorship, and why a rock song from the eighties has become an anthem for protesters.
Shrimp Who Falls Asleep
Writer Y.B., who we are identifying by her initials for the safety of her family, immigrated from Morelos, Mexico to New York City with her family over two decades ago. Since then, they've been living in Queens as undocumented immigrants. While Y.B. eventually was able to become a DACA recipient, her mother and uncle are still undocumented. She has since moved out, gone to college and become a writer. But as she's drifted away and created her own independent life, Y.B. has started to become increasingly worried about how little her family has changed. In this intimate story, Y.B. decides to confront her relatives with tough questions about their lack of progress, and how they try to stay afloat in this country.
The Battle Of 187, Part 3: Thank You, Pete Wilson
The third and final episode of our Prop 187 miniseries in collaboration with the Los Angeles Times. Just one day after the 1994 election, federal and state lawsuits are filed claiming 187 is unconstitutional. And though 187 finally dies for good in 1999, Latinos in California never forget it. Prop 187 inspired more Latinos than ever before to register to vote and to run for office in California. Host Gustavo Arellano ends with one question: given President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric, are we poised to experience another 187 at a national scale?
