Almost one million protesters took to the streets of Chile yesterday and stayed through the night in the biggest demonstrations since violence broke out in the capital a week ago.

So far at least 18 people have been killed, hundreds wounded, and millions of dollars worth of damage has been caused.

Demonstrators waving national flags, blowing whistles and horns, wafting incense and bearing placards urging political and social change streamed through the streets, walking for miles from around Santiago to converge on Plaza Italia.

The scenes were replicated in cities around the country.

Traffic ground to a standstill in Santiago as truck and taxi drivers added their own protest over road tolls and public transport shut down early ahead of marches that grew throughout the afternoon.

Santiago governor, Karla Rubilar, said almost a million people marched in the capital - more than five percent of the country's population.

'Today is a historic day,' Rubilar wrote on Twitter. 'The Metropolitan Region is host to a peaceful march of almost one million people who represent a dream for a new Chile.'

Clotilde Soto, an 82-year-old retired teacher, said she was marching because she did not want to die without seeing change.

'Above all we need better salaries and better pensions, she said.

Protests that started over a hike in public transport fares boiled into riots, arson and looting that have killed at least 18 people, injured hundreds, brought more than 7,000 arrests and caused more than $1.4billion of losses to Chilean businesses.

Chile's military has taken over security in Santiago, a city of six million people now under a state of emergency with night-time curfews.

On Friday morning, trucks, cars and taxis had slowed to a crawl on major roads, honking horns and waving Chilean flags.

'No more tolls! Enough with the abuse!' read bright yellow-and-red signs plastered to the front of vehicles.

Chile's unrest is the latest in a flare-up of protests in South America and round the world - from Beirut to Barcelona - each with local triggers but also sharing underlying anger at social disparities and ruling elites.
