universities reject government proposal

While the Confederation of Students of Chile, CONFECH, was to formally answer whether approved or rejected the government proposal on Friday, federations and college have clear picture that points to a refusal to be "inadequate and not respond to the demands of petition ".

This is the case of the University of Concepción . Its president, William Petersen, told La Tercera that "we reject the government's proposal because it emanated from an ideological agreement of this political class and does not respond to, for example, how the state will guarantee education as a right and only deepens on indebtedness. "

A similar view is the president of the Student Federation of the U. Católica de Valparaíso , Nataly Espinoza, who said that "we did an analysis of the proposal of the minister and the students considered it a setback because it allows profit. We see no structural change, on the contrary, privatization further education and perpetuating the debt, "demanded the leader.

While for the vice president of Utem , Cesar Urbina, document delivery with 21 points progress towards democratization, "there are bright lights aimed at further privatizing."

"There is dissatisfaction with the Federation about that (points) are few specific regard to our demands. It's more of the same, do not specify the amounts, for example, "he said. 

Discontent across the country. In the north, Arica, president of the Federation of U. Tarapacá , Macarena Godinez, told La Tercera that the document does not "guarantee to get free items or be an equitable system. No Psu rejected. We appreciate the initiative of the preparatory course but it's a band-aid solution, "he said. UTA students formally vote today in the afternoon.

A scenario that is repeated in the U. Playa Ancha that takes more than two months to take. "The first approaches are negative towards the government's proposal does not present anything poque back to what I already mentioned the former minister Lavin," said Anibal Olea.

In addition, during the course of the day the U. de Chile, U. Arturo Prat and Austral Bio Bio also decided to vote against the government proposal. With this scenario, add 11 campuses.
