Clashes erupted between protesters and riot police in Santiago, Wednesday, after an estimated 200,000-strong demonstration organised by students and teachers again turned to violence in the Chilean capital. Police, equipped with armoured vehicles, used water cannons in an attempt to disperse protesters, detaining many of the demonstration's participants. The mass rally was organised by Teachers College Santiago, the National Coordinator of Secondary Students (Cones) and the Coordinated Assembly of Secondary Students (ACES) to call for the right to demonstrate and further educational reform. Chilean President Michelle Bachelet has reportedly approved new educational legislation, banning tuition fees, profits, and selective admission from state-subsidised schools. However, the reforms have not met the protesters demands, who have been demonstrating over the issue since 2011.
