From 2011 to 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.
