11th of September - To the sons of a lesser god.

    Newer Older

    For the 10th year the 11th of September was marked by worldwide remembrance of the 2001 attacks on the USA. On the same day 38 years ago, with the backing of the CIA, General Augusto Pinochet led a coup d'état which overthrew Allende's democratically elected socialist government. It was the beginning of a brutal fascist dictatorship that, according to various reports and investigations, had 1,200–3,200 people killed, up to 80,000 interned, and up to 30,000 tortured, including women and children. Advised by US economists, Pinochet implemented ruthless economic reforms that created dramatic economic inequalities, and lead to the 1982 monetary crisis in the Chilean economy. Pinochet was never held accountable for his crimes. By the time of his death on 10 December 2006, about 300 criminal charges were still pending against him for numerous human rights violations, tax evasion and embezzlement. It is estimated that Pinochet corruptly amassed a wealth of US$28 million or more. This photo is a tribute to the less often remembered victims of a tragic 11th of September.
