Thursday’s march will start in the Bandejón Central Los Héroes at 10:00 hours, local time, and was convened by the so-called Revolutionary Secondary Coordinating Committee.

Downtown Santiago has been the scene of protests since the referendum of a project to reform the 1980 Constitution was rejected on Sunday, which proposed among its pillars, to advance toward a free and quality education.

Some 1,000 students from several high schools were repressed on Tuesday by Carabineros, Chile’s militarized national police, as they marched along the emblematic Alameda Avenue towards La Moneda Palace, at a time when the announcement of the cabinet reshuffle was being prepared there.

The police launched jets of water and tear gas against the students, some of whom responded with blunt objects.

Protest actions were also registered in the Santiago subway on Wednesday, where students sat on the edge of the platform, which forced the closure of several stations.
