Stop torture and sexual violence against women arrested during the social uprising in Chile.
 
We demand the immediate stop of sexual violence as a form of torture, carried out by the police and the military in Chile against women arrested during the recent social protests in the country. 
As documented in their latest report the Institute of Human Rights in Chile women have been forced to undress, do “squats” (semi-sitting, with open legs) and have been intimidated by threats of having machine guns introduced into their vaginas.


These torture practices  are against all principles in a democratic country like Chile, where the State according to the Constitution (Article 19,N ‘ 1 CPR) has the duty to protect the rights to life, and physical and psychological integrity of all its citizens.
