Chilean students clashed with police in the streets of Santiago Tuesday (May 28) in the latest mass protest called by student organizations to demand the government provide free and quality education for all. Thousands of students braved stormy weather and cool temperatures in the Chilean capital as they marched through a central Santiago thoroughfare carrying signs and shouting protest slogans at police. Students, both secondary and university, have led regular demonstrations, calling for a free and quality education for all Chileans since the protest movement started in 2011. The protests have tainted the administration of President Sebastian Pinera as student groups have staged multiple mass protests and garnered support from other social groups.
