Students from the National Institute, Chile’s oldest and most famous public high school, in October 2019 started a movement that spread across the nation, a rebellion against the inequities embedded in Chilean society as a result of the Pincohet era Constitution. This movement grew to the extent that the conservative government of President Pinera agreed to hold a national vote on the drafting of a new constitution, first set for April 2020 but delayed to this month as a result of the pandemic.
