Show Notes

When violent militarized police attack school children protesting for the right to education in Chile, hundreds of homeless street dogs stand in the way.  This story focuses on two of the hundreds of Chilean protesting dogs:  the infamous Negro Matapacos (Bebe), whose likeness pops up wherever social injustice involving police brutality and injustice to kids around the world exists, and El Vaquita, the dog who needed a fake protest to see the vet.
