Social Unrest in Chile

More Info
Tens of thousands of Chileans have taken to the streets to urge new President Michelle Bachelet to carry out her left-leaning reform program. Activists demand that the Pinochet-era constitution be replaced with a document that protects the rights of all citizens, and students across the country have raised their voices seeking education reforms promised in Bachelet's presidential campaign. Other participants in the movement are demanding the fulfillment of Bachelet’s promises of improving healthcare and reducing income disparity.
