"Dozens of youths disrupted a Senate committee hearing Thursday, then occupied the Senate office building for eight hours to demand a referendum on how to resolve Chile's social problems, especially education. The activists left Thursday night after getting a promise from opposition legislators that they will introduce a bill requiring a binding referendum, although political leaders on both right and left have said Congress itself must decide the dispute."
