Chile unrest: Growing anger over social inequality

Protesters say Chile's economic unrest is decades in the making. Al Jazeera looks at what's behind the weeks of demonstrations.

    Protests in Chile show no sign of slowing down as they enter a third week.

    Despite the government offering a raft of economic reforms, protesters are calling for the president to resign.

    Some blame economic policies that began when the country returned to democracy in 1990.

    Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo reports from Santiago.
