Chile: Protesters clash with police at student rally

19 October 2018 19:16

 

Demonstrators were seen clashing with police while protesting against the “Safe Classroom” bill in Santiago on Thursday.

Riot police were seen using water cannons, pushing protesters away and detaining some of them.

The government is trying to pass legislation which penalizes students who attack police officers, teachers or peers and cause damage to educational institutions.

Critics believe the new law does not follow due process and clamps down on free speech, needlessly punishing non-violent protesters.
