ZOMBIE PROTEST IN CHILE




Around 3,000 Chilean students demonstrated in front of La Moneda presidential palace.

They dressed up as zombies and danced to Michael Jackson's "Thriller". They did this because they believe that education is currently dead and they demand for higher education reforms.

[Jaira Sepulveda, Student]:
"Public education is dying so we took this Michael Jackson creation and we united to this movement that is dying, the zombies. At its heart, that's what it is. And behind each zombie, there's a family. This has much deeper meaning." 

The students are calling for greater spending on schools and reforms in Chile's educational system.
