Camila Vallejo and Norm Titelman, two student leaders in Chile, were in the US this week to receive the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award, which is awarded by the Institute for Policy Studies. Education is highly privatized here, and extremely difficult to afford for the average person – hence the last nearly two years of student strikes. It seems the situation here has implications for the push toward privatization of the education system in the US. They were interviewed this week on Democracy Now! Here is part one and part two. They include some video clips of student/police clashes – a not-uncommon occurrence. Thoughts?
