Uncovering Pinochet’s Secret Death Camps
7 April 2014
Facing the Past: Revealing the truth about Chile’s dirty war.
In Chile, the murderous past under dictator general Augusto Pinochet is slowly coming under scrutiny. With new evidence of extermination camps, the families of the disappeared are yearning for justice.
“I started to testify and began to get rid of those pangs of guilt”, confesses Jorgelino Vergara. Aged only 15, Jorgelino worked as waiter at the secret Simon Bolivar extermination centre witnessing horrific torture and murder. More than 3000 people were kidnapped and killed after the army general seized power in 1973. After a long investigation, charges are being laid against more than seventy people accused of involvement in the brutality at Simon Bolivar.
One of them is a member of the much feared Lautaro Brigade, Adriana Rivas. From the safety of her Australian exile, she denies charges but her views on torture remain chilling: “Everyone knew they had to do that in order to break them because Communists would not talk. It was necessary”. The secrets and brutality of the Pinochet regime are laid bare at Santiago’s memory museum. The daughter of one of Rivas’ victims, who was beaten to a pulp and then injected with a lethal poison, is now a curator there. As she fights for remembrance and justice, she wonders: “How can a human being be part of this machinery of exterminating people?”
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Thursday 11th August 2016
I am one of the many thousands of my compatriots who support you. even if you have no idea of our existence. But you may have read the lines in which our Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda celebrated the Communist Party of Chile in his poem To My Party. The verse — which I have never forgotten — is this: “You have given me fraternity toward the unknown man.”
When reading those words in Spanish I could only feel an echo of their deep meaning, for I was not to experience this human solidarity until many years later; and then it was in reverse — fraternity from those we do not know.
This solidarity came from all over the world after the 1973 military coup — or Chilean September 11 — the day that tanks and aeroplanes attacked La Moneda Palace. Salvador Allende, then president of Chile, lost his life defending his right to be true to the mandate he had received from his people. In response, he and we Chileans received the support of people from all over the world.
In your country, British people came out on to the streets of their cities to express their solidarity with my people, the victims of a fascist coup.
Exiled in Britain, I saw with my own eyes the giant London demonstrations in 1974 when thousands filled Trafalgar Square, while thousands more marched in Hyde Park.
I knew then my people were not alone.
We Chileans came to know of innumerable names from all corners of British society who decried the state terrorism of General Pinochet.
It is not possible to recollect all the names, but we still remember some emblematic ones. It was then that your name began to recur until it became familiar not only to those who met you in Britain, but also to those who met you in Chile, and those who heard your name over the radio while listening to “Escucha Chile!” (Chile, Listen!), which was broadcast daily by exiles denouncing the imprisonments, torture, murders, kidnaps and terrorism unleashed on the population.
So, now, I am writing to thank the British people once more for their solidarity and to remind you that there are still legions of Chileans who remember this and remember your name, Jeremy Corbyn, as one of the staunchest defenders of our cause for freedom, democracy, human rights and internationalism.
We are proud that many years later, your name has again hit the headlines, bringing hope to so many, not only in your own country, but also to many abroad. We Chileans think that you are a true hero of internationalism in our time.
This is because your solidarity never ceased during the 17 years of Pinochet dictatorship. Not only that, you were one of those British people who went to Chile under fascism in order to show camaraderie to our people.
It is not difficult to understand why at present so many Chileans support you. This is not only a token of our gratitude, it is also a token of human hope for the days to come on a planet that seeks not only material welfare for the population of the world but also, and fundamentally, nuclear disarmament in a bid to achieve universal peace and live lives of friendship, love and solidarity.
Those who remember president Allende with love know that Jeremy Corbyn shares his ideals, his stamina and his vision as a leader. We know that you have always been in support not only with us Chileans, but with all the peoples of Latin America and elsewhere who struggle for a better way of life and for a better world. In their name I salute you, and wish you all the very best in your political and personal life. I embrace you with a very warm hug, the Chilean way.
