Chilean Student Leader Publically Predicts the Fall of the current President of Chile

The student movement in Chile made international headlines again today when student activist Camila Vallejo publicly announced that the student movement is confident that the current conservative and rightward leaning President Sebastian Pinera will not be re-elected.

One could interpret this as just a case of outwardly boastful predictions, however the very fact that international media has picked up this story suggests–at the very least–the the level of power with which the Chilean Student movement has grown at this point is substantial.   Only time will tell but it does not seem overtly bold to tentatively suggest that this might be the strongest student movement to emerge on the face of the planet thus fra in the 21st century.
