    Background: SANTIAGO, CHILE

    The continuing wave of protests against Chile's ruling Pinochet Government moved to two Santiago universities on April 12, with students at the Law School and the School of Engineering boycotting classes in the first general students' strike in ten years. Thousands of youths staged a sitdown demonstration outside the Law School, with others dancing in front of the building's entrance, chanting anti-government slogans. Later, a commemorative wreath was laid at a local memorial in tribute to students killed by police in previous encounters. The national administration of General Augusto Pinochet came under further pressure on April 12, when an estimated 3,000 students marched outside the School of Engineering in Santiago to demand Pinochet's resignation and the restoration of civil rights. The non-violet protest wound through downtown Santiago, snarling traffic, and then moved to a rallying point where the crowd cheered speakers who called for immediate liberty and freedom for all Chileans.
