874

Between 2011 and 2013 thousands of people took to the streets of Chile to protest against the government and their profit from education policies. Teachers, students and their parents demanded wholesale changes, including a new constitution and a new financial structure for higher education, which has left millions of students with high debt.
The protestors gathered at iconic points of the cities, marching through main avenues and chanting songs against the system.
The marches usually ended with clashes between civilians and the police, who arrest protestors and used tear gas and an excessive use of the force against the crowds. On august 11, 2011 one of the biggest march occur in Santiago, that day 874 young students where taken to detention by the police. 


874
Entre 2011 y 2013, miles de personas salieron a las calles de Chile para protestar contra el gobierno y sus políticas de lucro en la educación. Profesores, estudiantes y sus padres exigieron cambios totales, incluyendo una nueva constitución y una nueva estructura financiera para la educación superior, que ha dejado a millones de estudiantes con una elevada deuda.
Los manifestantes se reunieron en puntos emblemáticos de las ciudades, marchando por las principales avenidas y coreando canciones contra el sistema.
Las marchas suelen terminar con enfrentamientos entre civiles y la policía, quienes reprimen y detienen a los manifestantes utilizando gases lacrimógenos contra la multitud y un excesivo uso de la fuerza. El 11 de agosto de 2011 se produjo una de las mayores marchas en Santiago, ese día 874 jóvenes estudiantes fueron detenidos por la policía.
