Witness Seminar and Open Forum Series (No 3)

Chile and Scotland: 30 Years On
Recorded on 29 November 2003

On the morning of Tuesday 11 September 1973, two jets launched a deadly attack on the Presidential Palace of La Moneda in the heart of Santiago, Chile. A military coup led by Augusto Pinochet ousted the presidency of Salvador Allende, the world's first democratically-elected Marxist head of state.

Thirty years later oral testament is collected from those who were present, those who fled, those who remember it, those who took direct action against it, the families in Scotland who offered help, and those involved directly and indirectly in Chile today.
