Remembering September 11, 1973: The US‑backed Pinochet coup in Chile

This September marks the 50th anniversary of the US backed coup by Pinochet in Chile. It was one of the heaviest and bloodiest defeats ever suffered by the left and progressive movement in Latin America. There are a number of events being organised in Britain this year to remember and discuss the Chilean process and coup. Introductory note by Dave Kellaway.
