The looting, arson, and assaults by criminals and communists continues in Chile. I believe it will do so for the foreseeable future. The government is weak and is backing down to the Left, and is even willing to back a making a new constitution. The President thinks he can negotiate with communists. It is ridiculous. All the while they continue to spread mayhem.

Yesterday than made incursions into the upper class section of Viña del Mar. They threatened to come further in, to Reñaca and Concón sur. A reason for optimism emerged when a group of 325 people gathered (mostly with fluorescent vests) spontaneously at Reñaca beach to withstand the evildoers. The Carabineros were there to help, too, although few in numbers. They did manage to break up the 7,000-people march that had started in Valparaíso before it reached Calle 15 Norte in Viña del Mar.

The bad news is that we will likely need to go back down to defend Reñaca and Concón sur every day that they have marches, which could be often.

At 9 p.m. Chile time I will be recapping the day’s (and week’s) events and be available for questions. I hope you will attend on such short notice and get involved. and
