Chile: Student Protests Overwhelm Santiago

Referring to the student protests that have engulfed Santiago, Fernando Flores says that he has always considered education to be the Achilles heel of Chile (ES). Grafica Rebelde has photos and video of the protests. Atina Chile reminds readers (ES) that there is an entire category on the education debate. The blogs “Educate Us” (ES) and “Free Education” (ES), as would be expected, are both commenting on the protests and students’ demands. Isidro Beccar Varela laments the news that some protesting students have begun throwing stones in the streets (ES).
