Chile’s cacerolazos movement

Banging pots and pans became famous in Chile in 1971, when opponents of the left-wing government of President Salvador Allende came out to protest food shortages and rationing.

Several countries across Latin America are expected to hold a simultaneous “cacerolazo” on Sunday.

It is a type of protest that involves banging on pots and pans.

And while crowds are coming together for a variety of reasons, they all have something in common.

Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman reports from one of those demonstrations in the Chilean capital, Santiago.
