The meme reads, "Carabineros represses now a demonstration in repudiation of the 2021 Military Parade. Arbitrary arrests."
Several political parties and figures rejected the Parade, recalling the acts of blood, violence, cases of corruption, theft, and embezzlement related to the Armed Forces during the last years.
"As long as the Army does not apologize for the enormous number of times it massacred its people. As long as it does not stop selecting its officers with political and class bias. As long as it does not depoliticize itself of its marked ultra-right ideology, it will not be the Army of all Chileans," historian Jorge Baradit remarked.
Broadcasted on National Television, the Ceremony had 6,500 troops from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Carabineros, and the Investigation Police.
