KPFA’s A Rude Awakening Interviews Gary Hughes on Chile’s Constitutional Reset

On 13 November 2020, Sabrina Jacobs of A Rude Awakening spoke with Gary Hughes of Biofuelwatch about decolonization, the Mapuche struggle against neoliberalism and industrial resource extraction, and Chile’s constitutional reset after months of unrest. Hughes, along with Global Justice Ecology Project’s co-founders Anne Petermann and Orin Langelle, spent nearly a month in Chile last year documenting the historic people’s uprising and meeting with people about its origins and demands. One of these demands was a new Constitution to replace the existing Pinochet-era Constitution.
