Chile’s President Sebastian Piñera has fired the whole cabinet following weeks of anti-government protests that have rocked the country. The president plans on introducing social reforms demanded by protesters.

“I have put all my ministers on notice in order to restructure my cabinet to confront these new demands,” the president said.

Mr. Piñera said he had heard the demands of the protestors. He also lifted a curfew that had been imposed in major cities in the country. The opposition supported the lifting of the curfew.

“We have all changed. Today’s joyful and peaceful march, in which Chileans have asked for a more just and unified Chile, opens hopeful paths into the future.” the president tweeted on Friday.

On Friday, millions of people turned up for a peaceful demonstration in the capital Santiago.

The demonstrations were initially sparked by the government’s decision to increase the metro fare.

At least seventeen people have been killed in the violent clashes between the demonstrators and security forces.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”

Mr. Khodaverdian, a contributor to this site, is available for free consultations 24/7 by calling 800-984-4123.
