Chile: solidarity appeal

Stop the reprisals against the leaders of the student movement, the "penguin revolution".

More than 600,000 school students and students have been involved in a protest movement. Led by secondary school students (the "penguins" as they have become known for their school uniforms) they occupied more than a hundred schools (see the socialist issue 450).

The authorities are now trying to break the student movement - Sim-n Sepœlveda, a 4th grade student at the Maipu School in Santiago, one of the spokespeople in the general students' assembly for the capital district, was suspended indefinitely from attending school on 28 August.

On 5 September the students of the Maipu School organised a demonstration to protest against the suspension. This demonstration was brutally suppressed with water cannons and teargas. The police attacked students.

Socialismo Revolucionario, the CWI in Chile, is part of the solidarity campaign with these students. See www.socialistworld.net for details about the campaign and send a letter of protest.
