The Other September 11: Chile 1973

Chile Coup Anniversary 0813b finalThis short article attached briefly tells the story of the “other September 11”, the bloody military coup against a democratic government in Chile, and the international solidarity action of metalworkers and other airline union members at Sydney airport in support of Chile’s unions and the broader population.
These events are an important and inspiring part of the AMWU’s long history.
Maybe it will lead you to the commemoration events that are happening in Australia over the next few days, especially in Sydney and Melbourne.

I am a retired left wing and labour movement activist. Before that I worked for a long time in the Australian union movement in union education, Australian and international solidarity and organising. I am also active in Cuban solidarity, the SEARCH FOUNDATION, and promoting discussion, debate and action about green socialism based on workers control and social ownership.
