Chile has been in full social transformation in 2011. Students vividly protested against the exponential cost of education in their country. Initially ignored by the authorities, the movement has been increasing in scale as secondary school students and the majority of the population have been joining in.
This student protest has caught the government unawares. During these demonstrations, the banners clearly expressed their discontent. Cornered, the government wanted to negotiate with Camila Vallejo, who was the head of the student movement.
In order to study, nearly 70% of the younger generation have no other choice than to take out loans.
