Traveler Video: Students Protest in Chile For Free Education

Planet Vagabond comes across the students riots shaking Chile at its core at the moment. Thousands of protesters are in the street, fighting against the North American model of private university education. They are chanting for free education and many of their teachers are siding with them. This was an amazing moment to share with them on the road. Their claims are not far from the occupy wall street ones. I saw a wonderful sign with more political force than the media would ever allow: “we are not from the right, we are not from the left, we are from the bottom and we are coming for the top”.
