Chile: At Least 50 Arrested in March for Free Education

The Chilean student movement’s latest national mobilization brought thousands of students to the streets of the capitol Santiago Wednesday. At least 50 students were arrested, according to Terra. Protests blocked traffic in front of the presidential palace for more than two hours. Police special forces aggressively arrested protesters, many of whom were high school students. Some protesters fought back by lighting flaming barricades and throwing rocks.
