Chile Students Agree to Talks With Government, Mercurio Reports

September 28, 2011

Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Chilean students will restart talks with the government over changes to the education system without putting a stop to demonstrations, El Mercurio reported in its online edition.

Students will stage demonstrations in Santiago tomorrow and will ask Education Minister Felipe Bulnes to give them a copy of the 2012 budget proposal so they can study the government’s education program, the Santiago-based newspaper quoted protest leader Camila Vallejo as saying at a press conference last night.
