Chile wont host APEC and COP25 conferences but will host an international football match

  • This just struck me as ironic, that two important economic and climate conferences are no longer to be staged in Santiago due to the violent protests that have left over 20 people dead, but the Copa Libertadores final between River (Arg) and Flamengo (Bra) will go ahead in Chile's capital since the Chilean government has assured Conmebol that it san guarantee safety- but it can't guarantee safety to its own citizens.

    One of the reasons it's not being held in BsAs is due to the violent nature of the football thugs, so why not hold the final in a city which is already a flashpoint for violent protests.

    Good thinking, Conmebol.
