Here is a lesson the Middle East can learn from. This was a peaceful, well organized demonstration for a specific cause. It was coordinated by well educated people, whose goals were clearly known.
On the other hand, what have we seen in Egypt and Syria? Military murders, destruction, disorganization and confusion to the point of hysteria.

Very true:
" most of Latin America's political leaders, wants us to study to just become semi-skilled workers, while we are fighting for education that enables us to think critically and speak out about what affects us, to improve things,"
Interesting coincidence that the only place were the event turned violent was in Colombia (the South American country most controlled/influenced by Washington), because police fired tear gas.

I think Chile had a high level of prefessionals, when people wanted to study.....they have the right to ask what they think is a solution, but I think they don't have the same righ to disturb for 6 months weekly, others people lifes . This situation has been there for quite a while, but suddenly everone wants all problems to be solved by magical.......strange world....
