Chile: 19 universities occupied by students

Some 19 campuses, both public and private, have been occupied by Chilean students, who continue in their indefatigable struggle to secure a public, free and quality education in their country.

While student struggle has been dramatically active in Chile the last several years, the movement felt impelled to give a new impulse to their struggle as the arrogant President Piñera (Christian-Democrat) declared on May 21s that he would not guarantee free public education. 

A new national student strike has been called by the Student Confederation (ConfECh) for June 26th.
