AIsheet_smallOriginally produced in 1975 by the Chile Solidarity Campaign, and authored by Chris Welch, a reprint of the graphic novel ‘Introduction to Chile’, together with an e-version of the book was produced on the 40th Anniversary of the military coup by the Chile40YearsOn network with the support of Unite the Union. Now, on the year of the 45th Anniversary, we are pleased to announce the PDF version of it that can be downloaded free of charge from the bottom of the page. -This replaces the e-book.

It’s a great read, with humour and great cartoons, as well as an excellent rundown of Chilean history from Chile 45 Years On Logo5cmthe Conquistadors to Allende’s Socialist Government of Popular Unity, the Pinochet coup, the Solidarity movement here and the Chileans’ lives as political exiles in Britain.
