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”.
EN: “Eagainst.com" is a non-profit independent multilingual blog consisted by a group of people with similar concerns and views (direct democracy, social and individual autonomy), views that are rarely disseminated through the broadcasts of the mainstream news channels. This section contains events that, probably, would have been censored by the mainstream media or distorted. Also, Eagainst is not a News network but, mainly, a space of expression of anti-capitalist ideas and critiques to every system of intense competition, selfishness, greed and authoritarianism. Therefore, this section contains either republications of News found in other Alternative Networks or even we offer our own reports wherever it is possible for us.
