9 11   allendebombs
               Manhattan 9-11 2001                The Bombed Presidential Palace, Chile, 1973


This is a GUEST ARTICLE by Peter Mayo. In it he reminds us that there was another 9/11 before the infamous one we all remember. This other 9/11  marked the date of the military coup in Chile in 1973, when August Pinochet and his generals siezed power from the democratically elected Marxist Salvador Allende. With the assistance of the CIA and the support of the US multinational IT&T, the military bombed the Presidential Palace and murdered Allende, heralding in years of repression, torture, "disappearances" and assassinations. We all have as much cause to remember this 9/11 as the that which shook America in 2001.
