Have you ever wondered where those strawberries in your breakfast come from? Or the papayas, mangoes and pineapples that make fantastic smoothies? We are frequently used to buying fruits without realizing that we have access to some that are not produced in our country or that normally grow in summer and yet we can buy them in winter without a problem. We only notice the label that we must remove - with some nuisance, to be honest - every time we wash it and that timidly reads "Chile".

The Moneda Palace, after the first bombing, on September 11, 1973.

A date that has gone down in history for its violence, the symbolism of hatred it brought with it and the dark years that followed.

Demonstrators participate in a march in order to commemorate the International Women's Day in Santiago de Chile, Chile, 08 March 2016, where they asked for the end of discrimination and the decriminalization of abortion. The text reads ' I can choose'. EPA/MARIO RUIZ

Bajo el liderazgo de la presidenta Michelle Bachelet, el Congreso aprobó un proyecto "histórico" para legalizar el aborto en caso de malformación fetal, peligro para la vida de la madre o embarazo por violación. Hasta hoy, Chile era uno de los pocos países del mundo donde el aborto está prohibido bajo cualquier circunstancia.
