Santiago de Chile: Editorial Recoletras, 2023. First Edition. Paperback. 160p., color plates, photos, illus., wrps. New. Item #82336
On the 50th anniversary of the coup d'état against the democratic government of President Salvador Allende Gossens, Chile is unfortunately going through a major crisis of its representative democracy.
The right, falsely strengthened by the rejection of the proposal for a new Constitution that emanated from the people, is preparing to impose its entire program based on the deepening of the neoliberal model and the construction of a Police State.
With the dictatorship, they destroyed the social rights that Chile had won and, today, after long years of fighting for more democracy and putting an end to authoritarian enclaves, the Chilean elite seeks to relativize civil and political rights, with the aim of truncating dreams for a happier and more just society.
They have managed to install their political agenda and have plunged Chilean society into confinement, the product of a campaign of terror that transforms fear into power behind power.
