SANTIAGO, Chile - Violence erupted on the streets of Chile's capital and other cities Tuesday as tens of thousands of students staged another protest demanding changes in public education.

Masked demonstrators burned cars and barricades, looted storefronts and threw furniture at police in Santiago. Some attacked an apartment building, throwing rocks and breaking windows. Riot police used tear gas and tanks with water cannons to push them back.

It was/still England but now Chile for protests these protests turned very violent very quickly this one hasn't really been reported much but they were banned protests for 5 days and nearly 900 arrests but 70,000 and 80,000 marched in Santiago protesting education reforms. This has been going on for quite a while as well.
