Students of higher and secondary education - together with the College of Teachers - began the first major student national march of the year and the first against new president Sebastian Pinera in Santiago on Thursday.

The demonstration was called by the Confederation of Students of Chile (Confech), the School of Teachers, the National Coordinator of Secondary Students (Cones) and the Coordinating Assembly of Secondary Students (ACES).

The protest gathered thousands of people in the capital, who marched with dances, banners and canvases. Despite the intentions of the organisers, clashes between riot police and some protesters occurred during the march.

Miles de estudiantes y profesores realizaron la primera gran marcha en Chile desde que asumió el presidente Sebastián Piñera. Los activistas se manifestaron contra lo que ellos llaman una educación “sexista, lucro y CAE”.

La marcha fue convocada por la Confederación Nacional de Estudiantes de Chile (Confech), Escuela de Maestros, la Coordinadora Nacional de Estudiantes de Secundaria (Cones) y la Asamblea de Coordinación de Estudiantes de Secundaria (ACES).

Unos 120.000 activistas participaron en la manifestación que se realizó en la capital Santiago de Chile. Durante la marcha los manifestantes se enfrentaron con la policía, que utilizó gases lacrimógenos y cañones de agua para dispersarlos.
