More on the Student Protests in Chile…

10 Aug

The student protests and violent reaction by the Carabineros continued in Chile yesterday –  according to La Tercera between 70 and 80 thousand people participated with 273 people arrested. They have some great images. 

As does satirical Chilean newspaper The Clinic – you can see their images here.

Finally for this morning -and  for (Chilean) spanish speakers, the students are promoting a documentary produced by TeleSur (Hugo Chavez’s Latin American version of Al Jazeera) – Mal Educados!  – El Problema de la Educación en Chile (Poorly educated! The Problem of Education in Chile), which shows “the root of the problem like no Chilean channel would, or ever will in the future.”

Make sure to check out the Michael Jackson thriller dance protest at the start. Even for non-Spanish speakers, the tone, music and images are worth your time.
