We are all workers, we are always working. Today we are at home rested and the power outage caught us, that’s why we decided to claim. Then there were only ten men trying to set some tires on fire. I saw that the barracks got off the bus more than 500 meters away and started running people away. They pushed them. The bars drew weapons and fired shots into the air. It was horrible. We got a terrible fright. The bars broke the windows of the houses, threw stones. It was horrible,” Pablo Figueroa, a neighbor of Wilde who was at the scene, told Infobae.
