Student's strike : Universidad de Chile Main Campus occupation
Studens are currently fighting for free education for all. Consequently, students from Universidad de Chile are storming into their main campus to occupy peacefully as an act of protest. In case you don´t know, Universidad de Chile is the most important public University in this country, it stands for the republicans values of the nation. At the same time, Universidad de Chile is suffering the consequences of the free market system that rules tertiary education. Besides, a great number of their students can´t afford the excessive costs of attending university because tuitions are excessive, there are very few scholarships and interest rates of student loans are the legal equivalent to usury.
