Giorgio Jackson (26) is a social movement leader and recently elected MP in Chile. He represents a new generation of activists and politicians entering the political arena. Giorgio led the student mobilisations in Chile in 2011. Since then he has been able to transform the existing local discontent, in relation to the segregated educational system, into a much broader social movement capable of questioning the very foundations of the Chilean political and economic institutional framework. These mobilisations have proven to be the largest in the last 30 years and have been able to effectively challenge the prevailing hegemonic neoliberal paradigm in the country.
