Comment from: ELIZABETH

I found the article very interesting and it made me aware that my knowledge of Chile is very small.I,as many people in Europe think of the rescue of the miners when I think of Chile. We were glued to the T.V until every last one of them was rescued. I hope this attention has somehow helped to regulate the safe working practices in the mines. If this is the case,maybe more media attention for problems of repression of the population would also help. If Mapuche activists are merely actively re-claiming their land, maybe they need an arena to sort out their problems. If the students have genuine grievances, maybe they also need to be able to air them without fear. I do not know enough about the problems facing these people but I believe that conflicts should be resolved peacefully and without fear. My heart goes out to them in their troubles.
