  1. Students break off government talks

    CHILE: Student leaders broke off negotiations with the government on Wednesday complaining of official intransigence over their demands for free public education.

    Some indicated that students would return their focus to the street protests and campus occupations that have paralysed many universities and secondary schools for more than five months.

    Camila Vallejo, spokeswoman for leaders of students at 25 state universities, said government officials had shown “no real willingness to build a free public education of quality and democracy for everyone.”
