– CUECA* OF THE STUDENTS –
All over the planet, life,
students are rising up.
With all their hearts, for education,
to put an end to the money-makers.
With reason, good education,
No ignorant person to rule.
They don’t want to live with such injustice,
they are outraged.
So much passion, good education,
So much illusion, for education,
the students are already rising up.
They take to the streets
like a storm,
awakening the people, ayayay,
without fear – their own conscience.
They take to the streets, ayayay,
life, putting people on alert.
Life – like storm,
they are pure air.
In the squares their voice is heard,
life – they are the future
In my homeland they claim:
young people who love.
*Cueca is the national dance of Chile
