Violence Erupts at Chile Teacher Protest

TAGS.

Violence erupted in the streets of Santiago, Chile, Thursday, June 20, as thousands of teachers demonstrated, demanding better working conditions. Thursday's march had been mostly peaceful, but violence broke out after a small group of hooded demonstrators threw rocks at police near the presidential palace. Police used water cannons and tear gas to push back the protesters. The teachers have been on strike for three weeks, forcing the cancellation of classes for thousands of students. Their demands include the payment of a bonus and the annulment of a measure that changed history and physical education into optional subjects in the school curriculum.
