2013 marks the 40th Anniversary of the military coupthat resulted in the death of socialist President Salvador Allende and thousands of his supporters. The wealthy, supported by the US, ignoring the rule of law, joined in the overthrow of his democratically elected government.

During the 3 years of Allende’s government a great deal had been achieved: nationalisation of natural resources and banking, Agricultural Reform that saw redistribution of land to peasants, massive expenditure on housing, health and education – and much more.

This conference Is an opportunity to reflect on the coup and its impact on us today, and to learn about recent developments in Latin America to carry on Allende’s vision of a fairer world. Another world is possible!
