Chile’s bishops call for compromise amid student protests

August 12, 2011

Amid mass student protests against inequities in the nation’s educational system, Chile’s bishops are calling upon civil authorities and students to compromise.

“The country cannot go forward under the pressure of demonstrations or police repression, and neither under threat or provocation,” the bishops’ administrative committee said in a statement. “In this decisive hour, dialogue is the key to objectively evaluate the requests and proposals, restore confidence, to find common ground to reach an agreement.”

“As in any negotiation, one should always give up something and come to some sort of compromise.”
