Views of the Chilean strike

It will take time to judge the impact of the strike in Chile, but certain viewpoints are developing:

--the U.S. media sees it mostly as a mass of violence (but thank goodness copper mining is not disrupted)

--so does Al Jazeera

--the Piñera government says this is no big deal, and those jerks aren't paralyzing the country like they claim

--the CUT says it has been quite a success

--the Concertación is a bit bummed out that it is irrelevant

--Sebastián Piñera figured this was a good way to get more followers on Twitter

--the IMF says forget all that and enact more austerity policies
