Chileans sing against violent government


This 13 December 2019 live music video by Chilean folk music group Inti-Illimani says about itself, translated:

El pueblo unido jamas será vencido (The united people will never be defeated), by Sergio Ortega.

We sing … [contrary to the right-wing government] we don’t make anyone blind, we don’t rape anyone, we don’t hit or torture anyone …

We sang … and with us tens of thousands … it was very beautiful and hopeful.

In the enormous crowd, flags of Chile, of the Chilean Mapuche indigenous people, and portraits of President Allende, murdered by the 1973 CIA-Pinochet coup.
