About this product
- DescriptionA Call for Remembrance - Pilar Aguilera and Ricardo Fredes marshall an incredible collection of contributors in this timely reminder of the atrocities committed by General Pichet in 1973. September 11, 2001 - A date etched in letters of fire and dust on the consciousness of a generation. Chilean author Ariel Dorfman comments in its aftermath: I have been through this before. During the last 28 years, September 11 has been a date of mourning, for me and millions of others, ever since that day in 1973 when Chile lost its democracy in a military coup, that day when death irrevocably entered our lives and changed us forever. In 1973, General Pichet successfully took power from the democratically - elected Chilean government and its President, Salvador Allende, in a US-backed coup whose terror lasted for 17 years. Now famously indicted for multiple charges of human rights violations, Pichet ruled the South American country with an iron grip, dissolving all organs of political expression and imprisoning and torturing 30,000 Chileans, 3,000 of whom were executed or disappeared. The editors of Chile: The Other September 11 have gathered articles, essays, speeches and poems written and given by key figures in the South American theatre, including Ariel Dorfman, Salvador Allende, Pablo Neruda, Beatriz Allende, Joan and Victor Jara and Fidel Castro.
