In Chile, thousands of students angered at rising education costs, clashed with police in the capital, who responded with tear gas and water cannons. The students had flooded the streets for a peaceful march, still wearing their uniforms and backpacks, before it then turned violent. At least 40 were arrested. The students oppose the fact they have to pay 75% of the cost of their own educations - one of the highest rates in the world.

I was reading somewhere -- tear gas is designed by and for the government to shut up protestors. Silence! People are trying to sleep.
