The bloodbath orgy manipulated by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States during the presidency of Richard Nixon with the collusion of the International Telephone and Telegraph Company ( ITT ) and national right-wing sectors , plunged the South American country into a bloodbath.
On September 11, 1973 shocked the entire Latin American continent. Under the sign of repression and death ended an alternative social change. A style story repeated overthrow of Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954, the invasion of the Dominican Republic in 1965, the frustration of civil-military movements like that of Gen. Juan Velasco Alvarado in Peru ( 1968 ) and the Bolivian Juan José Torres overthrown in 1971 and killed five years later.
Some 40 years ago, to a few hours before sacrificing himself in the line of duty as Constitutional President of Chile, Salvador Allende predicted … “The history does not stop neither the repression nor r crime. This is a stage that will be overcome. This is a hard and difficult moment: you may crush us. But the future will be of people, and workers. Mankind advances to the conquest of a better life. “A leading firm conviction when exactly at 9:10 in the morning were to express: ” … They have the power, they can dominate us, but social processes can be arrested by neither crime nor force. History is ours, and the people. “
The unforgettable President of Chile Salvador Allende forward to your country what would be a rebirth of our people in the conquest of emancipation: ” … You must continue knowing that sooner rather than later, again the great avenues will open over which the free man, to build a better society. “
Large malls were opened definitely for all Latin America as a giant walk of free peoples. A better, just, sustainable and emancipated future advances by great and new malls. Forty years after that sad and bloody episode there is no greater tribute of remembrance for Salvador Allende and his fallen fellows than this.
