The local residents protested by closing the road from the early hours of the morning, protesting over a lack of drinking water, a problem they have been confronting for the past 15 days.
Even though the police continued to negotiate with the protesters to reopen the road without any incidents having to happen, due to the refusal of the villagers, the riot police had to respond by firing pepper spray, according to reports by Hellen Concepción of TVN.
Among the protesters, there are women and children who were affected by the pepper spray released by the police. (TVN)
