Chile today: Allende’s anti-neoliberal autumn

One of the supreme ironies in the history of protest movements is the fact that Chile, a US laboratory for covert action and direct military aggression is also the place in which the slogan “¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido!” (The people united will never be defeated) originates. It is chanted by peoples in protests and meetings which honor revolutionary international solidarity.

Imagine a world without US intervention, violence, manipulation, and bullying. What’s happening in the Middle East is sending across the planet precisely the message that a world other than this is what people want, thereby agitating US policymakers, who have never imagined such a world possible.
