Thousands of students took to the streets of the Chilean capital again this week to demand free, public education. This is the latest protest in a long and determined struggle waged by students and supported by high school students and teachers against the neo-liberal education policies in Chile - the place where such policies were first  tried out by Chicago education economists, after the bloody coup which brought the dictator Pinochet to power in 1973. The Chileans have suffered ever since from privatisation and cuts in public education and all the other features of the neo-liberal education 'reform' landscape.

This is the second time this month that students have marched in their thousands. In the video clip you can see the young people enthusiastically talking about their cause and marching peacefully, only once again to be attacked by police in riot gear using water cannon and batons.
