Chile - The Other September 11 free pdf For Chileans, the date September 11 has another significance. Following the day in 2001 "when terror descended from the sky" and American hands held up photos of missing loved ones, Chilean author Ariel Dorfman wrote: "I have been through this before...During the last 28 years, September 11 has been a date of mourning, for me and millions of others, ever since that day in 1973 when Chile lost its democracy in a military coup, that day when death irrevocably entered our lives and changed us forever." The terror, trauma and tragedy of General Pinochet's U.S.-backed coup against the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende lasted 17 years, and Pinochet and his key U.S. accomplice, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger still walk free. This book reclaims the historical significance of the other September 11 for all those who oppose U.S. interventionism and seek a more just world.
