    Students from various high schools in Valparaiso, in Chile, mobilize towards the headquarters of the Congress of the South American country, located in that port city, to express their rejection of the ‘Nain-Retamal Law’ that is being processed in Parliament.

    The mobilization also occurs within the framework of the Day of the Young Combatant. Disaffected have dubbed the bill as “trigger easy”since it would presumably favor Carabineros.

    The bill that the students oppose was approved in the Chamber of Deputies of Congress this Wednesday and will now continue its legislative process in the Senate.

First increases the penalties for crimes committed against Carabineros officials, the Investigative Police and Gendarmerie; while the second establishes the privileged legitimate defense in actions related to the exercise of the police function, Cooperative review.
