Labour Day in Santiago

In this historic day the labour movement converge with the student movement, that also integrate the working class, that has been going in a strong demonstration for a year ago. The day was filled with many events and demonstrations that reaffirm that the economic system are in crisis.

At 11 o'clock thousands of workers organized in the CUT (the bigger federation of workers in Chile) started the march from the front of Universidad de Santiago. The student movement also include the large column with signs of their demands. Political parties, social movements and communities with so much people complete the ten thousand that assist to the event. After that cultural acts in Plaza Brasil and in many parks made the day a really commemoration of the historical workers demands.

The actual crisis of representation that are experimenting the institutionalism in respect of the society, plus the social climate, requires answers of their demands with democratization tools and ways to enpower the people.

I believe that the labour day are always a good moment to think one more time about the society and how is configurated. The workers are the base of the society and historicaly they has been leave aside.
