Around 50 protesters marched in Rancagua as part of a national mobilization demanding justice for the murder of a Panguipulli street juggler by Chilean police, known as Carabineros. Protesters blocked roads and burnt barricades in the city, disrupting activity and shutting down the main highway out of the Rancagua.
Hundreds of students gathered at Korai Square in front of the Propylaea in Athens, protesting against a bill proposed by the Minister of Education that would return police to university campuses for the first time since the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974. Police kettled the crowd, preventing a march from occurring, but did not arrest any protesters.
Students gathered in Santiago to protest the transition test of Chilean Universities, which they say actively undermines many students in poverty. Barricades were first placed at the Alameda intersection with Los Héroes before protesters gathered at the Ministry of Education. Police responded with extreme force, attacking protesters and press, including the cameraman live on scene for CNN Chile.
Protesters continue to take to the streets in Puente Alto and Santiago against the press coverage of the protests. The Chilean media has been criticized for its review of the protests, which has been overly anti-protester; it also has not touched very much on the 48 dead during the uprising in October until today.
