(Chile)–Hundreds of Chilean students have taken part in a kissing demonstration in the capital Santiago. This is the latest in a series of protests demanding education reforms. Students kissed in front of Santiago Cathedral on Thursday. Their protests began three months ago with demands for state funding, better teacher training, and a guarantee of free quality education to all Chileans. But the demands have expanded to include a new constitution and popular referendums to give Chileans a direct voice in the government. And they hoped the kissing demonstration would attract attention to their cause. Chilean students said, “We are here for our cause, and we are protesting in a very beautiful way.” “We are supporting the cause. We have a long way to go.”

Well…you’ve got my attention Chile.  No hot girl left behind. This is how you get things done. America could learn a lot from Chile.
