The leader of the Aysén movement talks

Ivan Fuentes is the leader of the movement which has emerged in the extreme south of Chile. He has proven to be an adept spokesman and negotiator and has earned the admiration even of government ministers. Here is a clip of how he expresses himself, simply, intelligently, slightly longwindedly. But the student movement would have benefitted from having a spokesman with this degree of cohesiveness and humility.

The best line: "There should be a law which punishes political ineptitude."
