In 1973, the left-wing government of Chile headed by Salvador Allende was overthrown in a US-backed military coup. Augusto Pinochet then became Chile’s dictator for the next 17 years, implementing neoliberal policies and using brutal repression to quell resistance. But today a huge student movement is fighting for free quality public education and against neoliberalism.

In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the coup, join us for a discussion about the lessons that we can learn from Chile’s past and present: about the limitations of relying on leaders to achieve radical change, and about building popular power today
