Here's one way to deal with Occupiers courtesy of Chile-
Police in Chile have detained 139 people - most of them teenage students - who were occupying three schools in the capital, Santiago.
There were violent clashes as police moved into the buildings. The occupation is part of continuing protests against the government's education policies.
Chilean students have held months of mass protests in the past year to demand free, high-quality public education for all.
There is likely some bigger political picture at play, since the current government is the first right-of-center government since democracy was restored in 1990. However, even the left-of-center governments of the 90s and 00s kept most of the economic policies of the Chicago School-flavored Pinochet dictatorship of the 70s and 80s, which puts them well to the right of the other big South American countries.
The less-violent but still emotional strikes by Quebec students seems to have fizzled out, as a provincial election on Labour Day (spell it their way for Quebec; it's the same day in both the US and Canada, unlike Thanksgiving) gives the activists a more fruitful outlet for their frustrations.
I haven't fully caught up on the race there, but there seems to be a three way fight between the ruling Liberals, the PQ and the new Coalition Avenir Québec (moderate ex-pequistes and what was left of the libertarian-leaning ADQ), with the PQ holding a modest lead and the Liberals and the CAQ neck-and-neck for second (34PQ-27Grits-25CAQ).
How that translates to seats remains to be seen; projecting seats when we have the CAQ in the mix for the first time is a bit of a crap-shoot. The ADQ seats in the Quebec City area might be safe to translate to the CAQ, but their showing elsewhere will be interesting to track.
[Update 12:15-At least one Canadian PoliSci wonk has taken a stab at seats; ThreeHundredEight.com (that's the number of seats in the federal House of Commons) has it at 70-37-16 with 2 going to Occupy-esque Quebec Solidaire, but that assumes a 36-31-23 split in the vote. Bring the percentage down a notch, and the PQ might not be able to get a majority.]
