Many of you will recall another infamous September 11. It is the anniversary of (sadly) U.S.-sponsored terror against the people of a Latin American country in 1973. Ocean Press has just published a rich book reclaiming September 11 for Chileans and all victims of terror for which Washington is – or has been responsible.
CHILE: THE OTHER SEPTEMBER 11 – An anthology of reflections and commentaries on the 1973 coup in Chile Edited by Pilar Aguilera and Ricardo Fredes
Contributors include: Ariel Dorfman, Pablo Neruda, Victor Jara, Salvador Allende, Fidel Castro, Beatriz Allende, Joan Jara among many others…
The terror, trauma and tragedy of General Pinochet’s U.S.-backed coup against the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende lasted 17 years, and Pinochet and his key U.S. accomplices still walk free. This book recounts the historical significance of the “other” September 11 for all those who oppose U.S. the war mongering machine, its incessant interventionism abroad and genuinely advocate for a more just and peaceful world.
