Students protest in Chile - level 1

Students in Chile protested in the streets. Police met with the students. Students used rocks and small homemade bombs. Police used water cannon and gas.

In the beginning, the protest was nice but it ended badly. People started to fight. It was dangerous. Demonstrations are normal in Chile. People want better education but education is a big political problem.

Students got some money this year but they want more. Students say that some public schools are bad. They also say that the private schools are expensive.

Interesting words: canon (machine which uses water for demonstrators), dangerous (not safe).
