CHILEAN POLICE STOP MARCH FOR COPPER RE-NATIONALISM

CHILEAN POLICE STOP MARCH FOR COPPER RE-NATIONALISM. About 100 students unveiled a giant Chilean flag outside a mining company downtown Santiago on 11 July 2012, commemorating the 41st anniversary of the nationalisation of copper mining in the country. Groups of students, workers and social organisations marched to demand the ‘re-nationalisation of copper mining. The demonstrators were trying to get to the headquarters of state-run National Copper Corporation (CODELCO) with a letter demanding respect for the country´s economic sovereignty and urging to re-nationalise the strategic mineral, when police stopped them.
