Listen to Carmen Rodriquez interview with Jim Brown on CBC Radio’s The Current, March 29, 2012. A Chilean exile from the Pinochet era, now living in Vancouver, Rodriquez compares the protests of the 1960s to the current student protests. “The students have taken the role of leaders of the whole country’s social movement.”  Unlike the protests against the repression under Pinochet led by peasants and workers, she points to the political savvy and maturity of the students “well beyond their years.”   She dedicates her 2011 novel Retribution, set in 1960s Chile to the leader of today’s student protests, Camilla Vallejo.
