Fresh student protests in Chile

28-6-2012: More than 100.000 Chilean students and workers demonstrated in the capital Santiago, demanding free education for all. The protesters walked in front of the Presidential Palace, La Moneda, and the Ministry of Education.

The Confederation of Chilean Students (Confech) accused the police of suppressing the massive march with attacks and tear gas, despite the fact that they had committed themselves not to intervene.

The main motto of the Chilean students protest was: «For a country of equality we should all fight. Free public education to change society».
