Barend Lutz on Student Protests in Chile


Barend Lutz on Student Protests in Chile

red24′s regional analyst for the Americas, Barend Lutz, writes on the re-escalation of Chile’s Student Movement and the upcoming 2013 elections.

Since April 2011, student groups in Chile have conducted a series of countrywide demonstrations as part of an ongoing campaign against education privatisation and exclusive policies. The movement was particularly active in 2011 and early 2012; however, the activity of involved groups subsided significantly between September 2012 and April 2013. There has been a renewed momentum in recent months, as evidenced by an increase in the frequency and intensity of protests; further protests are expected in the coming weeks.
