Communities throughout Santiago frequently invite cultural and sociopolitical organizations to participate in events related to social demands, justice for grievances or to mark important dates in the community. On Sunday, August 23, the población Lo Hermida in Santiago held a carnival protesting the reduced sentence handed down by the Chilean Military Justice in the death of Manuel Gutierrez Reinoso in 2011. A documentary, "Crónica de un Comité," on a committee's efforts to find justice won the FIDOCS prize for best National Documentary in 2014.
