En Toma: Scenes from an occupied high school in Santiago, Chile.
Students in Chile have staged massive protests demanding free education. I went inside one of Chile’s oldest high schools, Liceo Miguel Luis Amunátegui, a school held by students for eight months last year, to interview Alfredo Vielma, 17, for an episode of Fault Lines. (Alfredo is pictured in two of the photos above: in front of the mural and silhouetted.) For the episode—which debuts tonight on Al Jazeera English—we followed the movement for two weeks and discovered that the students’ anger went well beyond issues of education.
