Remeber September 11th by Party9999999 Remeber September 11th by Party9999999
Poster in memory of Salvador Allende, over thrown in a US back Coup led by Augusto Pinochet.

[link]


Allende's last speech:

Workers of my country, I have faith in Chile and its destiny. Other men will overcome this dark and bitter moment when treason seeks to prevail. Go forward knowing that, sooner rather than later, the great avenues will open again and free men will walk through them to construct a better society.

Long live Chile! Long live the people! Long live the workers!

These are my last words, and I am certain that my sacrifice will not be in vain, I am certain that, at the very least, it will be a moral lesson that will punish felony, cowardice, and treason.

I remember exactly. General Augusto Pinochet overthrow that slime ball Salvador Allende! He should've! Pinochet made Chile the greatest country in South America! The left hates him because he was better than them, he was a visionary who made things better through hard work and tough decisions! Communism fell apart in 1991, but Chile still remains an economic miracle!

And if that's not clear enough for you, then how about this: Fuck Salvador Allende! Fuck Fidel Castro! Fuck the Soviet Union! Fuck Communism! And most of all, fuck you Party9999999!

God Bless General Augusto Jose Ramon Pinochet Ugarte! The savior of Chile!

Excellent job on the poster! But I can't help but notice "Remember" is spelled without the "M"! Same goes for the title!
Just wanted to give a heads up!

If Allende had not been overthrown, that fascist Pinochet would not have taken power and many more people would be alive today.

Isn't that the obvious? And also if Pinochet were to not try and overthrow Allende, the CIA will always have vessel to do the dirty work. We must be on our guard and prepare for the imperialist attack!

Things will not change for the better so as long as there is a Republican Party. If the Republicans win this November, the next stage of the War on Terror will begin and more Arab countries will be attacked and occupied.:frustrated::spyedvsjark:

Rest in Peace, comrade.

I find Salvador Allende's overthrow to be quite funny. He decided to Socialize his country, a bunch of people didn't like that, so he had the "disappear". Things are looking grim now. an "evil" communist is about to take charge of the country and turn it into a brutal dictatorship. But look! there on the Horizon comes Pinochet to save us from a brutal communist dictatorship! Hooray! No we have a brutal right wing dictatorship! Hooray!

Joking aside I found Pinochet hypocrisy during his rule to be hilarious, while it is true Allende made some members of the right and left wing opposition who were problematic "disappear" that number was barely at 100 if that, I can understand why the parliment called (successfully I might add) for his impeachment in light of breaches of the constitution that Allende committed. It goes without saying that everything Allende did Pinochet did far more severly, instead of ruling by decree to dominate parliment he simply dissolved parliment. He took complete control of the national television network and then promptly turned it into a propaganda machine (Allende was accused of the exact same thing) and illegally disposed of strikers (Allende was accused of this in relation to the El Teniente miners’ strike)

I don't think however, the United States was involved in the overthrow of Allende. They spread propaganda against him for certain and likely destabilized the country, which created the conditions for the coup to occur, but I do not think they had any personal role in it. They learned their lesson in 1970 after their first and what I believe to be only coup attempt in Chile went tits up.

Normally, I wouldn't jump into these things but you have the "disappear"ing attributed to the wrong guy and your number is way off. Several thousand Chileans were "disappeared" by the Pinochet regime and DINA. Some of them are still among the "disappeared".

And as for your remarks about the US's involvement, even the US government has admitted more involvement than you seem to attribute to them. The US trained the military of Pinochet, funded several groups trying to overthrow Allende, and up to the last minute were in on Pinochet's coup. Pinochet and DINA were trained in the methods of torture by the US government. The US is far from innocent when it comes to Chile and Allende.

Actually one of the reasons the Chilean parliament called for Allende's impeachment was the fact that he had supposedly had many of his right-wing and in some cases moderate left-wing opponents disappeared through the course of his presidency. Coupled with his union breaking at the El Teniente miners’ strike, ruling by decree and replacing his opponents with friends and political allies it came as no suprise to me when the government called for his impeachment (I do not think they actually expected Pinochet to seize control of the nation and dissolve parliament)

As for the US involvement, see what I told Laghing-rabt.

The U.S. also helped gather intelligence for the Coup, and trained the Chicago boys. Although the U.S. government didn't send in any man power, it is still very much responsible for the coup. The U.S. also provided material support for Pinochet's regime. The "Free World" happened to include right wing dictatorships.

Actually the Chicago boys were part of the plan for the 1970 coup, which never materalised. After that the CIA operations became much lower key and involved spreading propaganda by a right wing news outlet in Chile.Like I said though, they may have created the grounds for the coup via inciting the more radical left members of Allende's government. That is just a guess though.
