Post news re Chile's student protests and police brutality

Please post info about the Sept. 5 student/public protests in Chile, especially in Valaparaiso, Chile and Vina Del Mar, Chile here for this worried mom with college student there.
I read at 10:30 Portland time (1:30 pm Chile time) that Santiago was a war zone with police using water canons, tear gas, pepper spray, rubber-coated steel bullets, batons, dogs, regular bullets, and flash grenades. I suspect worse. My baby is there without a way to communicate to me. Her colleges, etc. did not email parents info. I cannot access  http://www.onlinetv-free.com/cnn-chile.html and I don't see what I want on youtube and for some reason I cannot access indymedia chile. Please post the news. Thanks.
