"On September 11th 1973, US-backed General Pinochet overthrew the democratically elected leader of Chile, Salvadore Allende. Pinochet ordered an air strike on the Presidential Palace, labor activists and famous folk guitarists were rounded up for torture, disappeared, and killed. Pinochet converted the national football stadium into a detention facility like Guantanamo Bay. Chile’s economy was turned into a plantation for the 1%, as inequality and poverty skyrocketed under the imposed Milton Friedman-style economic model.
Over 40,000 Chileans became victims of Pinochet’s terror. In response, the Nixon administration committed more money, more training, more torture equipment.
The world didn’t begin on September 11th, 2001. Rather, for the first time in modern history, Americans were visited by the same violence the US has imposed since its creation. In Chile, the US murdered tens of thousands and impoverished millions. This wasn’t America’s first foray in international terrorism, nor would it be the last. The United States security state is a terrorist and a plague on the people of the world.”— US Uncut
I was a freshman in high school. I remember waking up to take the bus to school and there was a weird frenzy in the air. I headed into Bio class and Mr. Davies turned on the tv for us to watch instead of going into normal lecture. I remember him looking at us and saying this: “Today is a day you will never forget. And remember that you were in my Bio class when this happened.” So this post is to remind you guys to appreciate every moment of your life…because life is made up of tiny moments. I love you guys so much. And to all those who are/were affected by this tragedy, you have our whole country’s support. Bless you and your loved ones forever. 🇺🇸 #911 #neverforget
