Chile student protesters occupy high schools…

From the Guardian today

“Hundreds of students have occupied high schools and blocked traffic in Chile’s capital to demand education reform. Police in riot gear evicted students from several schools but at least seven remained occupied on Wednesday.

The changes sought by students who have been protesting and boycotting classes all week would fundamentally overhaul a school system that has been privatised since the 1973-90 dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.”
