  • Description

    THE CHILEAN AUTHORITIES HAVE DECIDED TO BOW TO STUDENT DEMANDS FOR REPRESENTATION IN UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION AS A RESULT, HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS ARE PAINTING AND CLEANING UP THE OFFICES AND OTHER ROOMS OF THE CHILE UNIVERSITY, IN SANTIAGO, WHICH THEY OCCUPIED FOR 20 DAYS TO BACK THEIR DEMANDS.

    SOME 10,000 STUDENTS OCCUPIED THE CENTRAL BUILDING AND 15 FACULTIES OF THE UNIVERSITY DURING THEIR 20-DAY STRIKE. THEY WERE PROMISED THE ADMINISTRATIVE AND ACADEMIC REFORMS THEY REQUIRED AFTER THE RECTOR, EUGENIO GONZALEZ, RESIGNED. THE UNIVERSITY STRIKE FOLLOWED OTHERS BY THE STUDENTS OF THE PONTIPHICAL CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY IN SANTIAGO AND VALPARAISO. ANOTHER 50,000 STUDENTS IN CHILE HAD THREATENED TO STRIKE IN SYMPATHY.
