  • Description

    Street fighting broke out in Santiago on Tuesday (29 August) between police and two different groups of students, one group supporting the government of President Allende, the other opposing it.

    The fighting occurred only hours after a week-long state of emergency, imposed on the city because of strikes and demonstrations against the Allende government, had been lifted.

    The biggest demonstration was by right-wing students opposed to President Allende. They marched through Santiago to the government buildings in the city centre. But the police were ready for them and tried to disperse the demonstration with water cannon and tear gas. Twenty five students were arrested.
