(Reblogged from last year)
I first read about the events of Sept. 11th 1973 in Sheila Cassidy’s 1977 book Audacity to Believe. Ever since, I have been horrified by the story.
The Rettig Report concluded that 2,279 persons who died during the Pinochet government were killed for political reasons or as a result of political violence. The Valech Report concluded that 31,947 people were tortured, and 1,312 were exiled.
We will remember them.
