Viva Camilla Vallejo!

Camila Vallejo – Latin America's 23-year-old new revolutionary folk hero | World news | The Observer

I wish I were holding a sign on Wall Street in New York today. But these heady times are not confined to Wall Street. We don't hear much about what's happening in South America but it is extraordinary.  A young woman, Camilla Vallejo, is leading a student revolution in Chile that is spreading throughout South America.  She seems a young female Che Guevara.  She started out as student body president and took over from there.  She and her comrades are asking that University tuition become free.  "Education is not a commodity" they insist. And how right they are.  Let's level that particular playing field and see just how beautiful the world could become. Let's spread that 40% of wealth the top 1% has commandeered and improve everyone's lives.

Viva Camilla Vallejo!
