Chilean students are mobilizing to reject the PSU selection test that will be applied on Monday under strong security measures implemented by the police to avoid excesses inside the enclosures where the exam will take place.

High school and university students, who have expressed their opposition to the repetitive and controversial PSU test that they claim is part of the profit and segregation system in Chilean education, protest at various points in Santiago, while the evaluation begins.

Greta Thunberg’s tactics

Above all, Greta Thunberg said on BBC radio, convincing politicians to make the policy changes necessary to protect the Earth for future generations—instead of remaining beholden to fossil fuel corporations—will take an engaged global citizenry.

“Read up. Inform yourself about the actual science and situation,” she said. “Be an active democratic citizen. Of course to vote, but also to be active, because democracy is not only on election day, it’s happening all the time.”
