    What a joke...!!!! The unable former president Frei speaking bad words about the present President, when he have leaded one of the worst presidential term form the Consertacion age (20 very bad years)....he got the worst ratings leading the country, as a GDP fall out of 14%......and lost the running up to presidency for a second term facing our President Mr. Piñ looks like he is bleeding through his wounds yet, don´t you think ?

    Frei is the reason, why Piñera got president. If the Concertacion would have chosen Ignacio Walker as their candidate, present would look different.

    But with the same problems as they finished their long 20 years term.....corruption, low growing economy, paralized development, etc, etc....covered with a new mask, Ignacio Walker.....We have, if the leftist parties don´t continue with this artificial escalade, the oppotunity to reach the level of a developed country, the first of Latam....

    Please read the following link......A 45.190 personas les gusta esto (45.190 people like this)......!/SOLUCIONEDUCACIONALDIALOGOREAL

    The regular people don´t like that kind of person.....she have frozen his studies during this year to waist her time leadeing the caotic movement to destroy the basis of the governance in our country. Meanwhile, she is enjoying the resources obtained from a franchisse gave to a pre-universitary center that reach CL$ 30 millions (about USD 65.000) a year and nobody knows where this ammount is spent.....the advice was unveiled by a FECH students board member, the same leaded by her...that means she is profiting from the education system as well as the private schools and universities do.....and what she pretend to fight......

    Well, we can understand her behaviour, because we know widely how the comunist acts.....ever (comunist = corrupt and other leftist = mainly corrupt).

    Es muy linda mina, verdad que sí, es hermosa, pero es una pena porque tiene caca en la cabeza. Camila Vallejo is nuts.

    we also were 20 some time ago and wanted to change the world for better
    i dont know much of your system of education really
    but it seems rational what she is asking to improve for a more equality and public education
    the plebiscito would be a good beginning to find a solution, if the majority is against then just this girl would need to shut up and end of all, but perhaps she is expressing a need of many, those with little voice and chances that want to be heard (quieren ser escuchadas)
