Erwin at The Latin Americanist [1] updates readers on the student movement: “Last week Cristian Labbe, mayor of Providencia, ordered the suspension [2] of the school year and permitted police to remove student protesters who have been residing on local campuses.[…]” Labbe also declared that students who lived outside of Providencia would not be allowed to enroll. “At least sixteen people were arrested this morning [3] [September 26] after clashes between police and individuals upset at Labbe’s edict” Erwin reports.
