Open letter from civil society

October 20, 2019
Communications Colunga Foundation

Chile claims a new social agreement. The current crisis of our democracy has been triggered by a model that manages to generate wealth, but that unequally distributes its fruits. Additionally, there is a deep distrust of citizens towards all institutions and among ourselves. This is the most relevant social and political crisis since the return to democracy.

As a civil society we have insistently alerted the political and business world of severe conditions of economic inequality, gender, dignity and treatment, the lack of spaces for participation and an intolerable accumulation of undeserved disadvantages in millions of compatriots. So far we have not obtained a solid response from the political world or the business world. Today we feel helplessness and frustration because we have also failed in our task.

Faced with this crisis, a group of men and women representatives of more than 300 civil society organizations We put ourselves at the service of building a new and necessary social agreement. We are convinced that the interlocutors of today are totally insufficient and that is why we open the doors of our organizations for a democratic dialogue that manages to put the pains of Chile at the center of the public discussion. We do it from work with hundreds of thousands who are part of that Chile that has never been heard. We humbly offer our territorial deployment, our permanent contact with leaders throughout the country to be part of a dialogue with the necessary symmetry required by this crisis that has been too long between us.

As a civil society we invite and summon all the authorities, to join a dialogue, without simulations, with the willingness to achieve profound transformations capable of including those who today express their outrage. Otherwise, we will not achieve the desired social peace that Chile requires.
