Paro Nacional en Chile

Al-Jazeera is reporting that 8 people have died in the protests

Boris Van Der Spek, founder of the independent news website Chile Today, said the president's intervention might come too late.
"The protests are more than just about fare increase. It is about the cost of living and the level of inequality in the country. There is so much discontent in Chile. This was always going to happen one way or another," he said

Paro Nacional en Chile 

"We are at war against a powerful enemy, who is willing to use violence without any limits."

is this a quote from Pinochet or from Pinera?

(its Pinera, but his specific choice to refer to the people of Chile as the enemy is... chilling)
