A general strike is taking place in the southernmost region of Chile –Magallanes [1]– due to the Government's proposal to cut gas subsidies and as a result increase prices by 16.8% [2] in the region. In El Kiosko Bloggero [3] [es], Daniel Arellano explains what it is like to live in that region and criticizes the way the Government is handling the issue.
