This is a new educational resource designed to learn online about the Chilean experience, via interviews with exiled Chileans living in Britain. They tell their life stories, from the initial inspiration as Allende and Popular Unity came to power in 1970, the extraordinary achievement that they were part of, and their personal experiences in the run up to and on the day of the military coup (Sept 11th 1973) and its aftermath.
Four Chileans with widely different experiences tell of the repression they suffered, the solidarity both direct and indirect they received, and their arrival here in Britain to make new lives as exiles and activists.
We are pleased to announce the e-book version of the Graphic Novel “Introduction to Chile”. Originally produced in 1975 by the Chile Solidarity Campaign, and authored by Chris Welch, the whole book is now available to download from Amazon. It’s a great read, with humour and great cartoons, as well as an excellent run down of Chilean history from the 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.
Somehow an ebook version brings out sharply the story’s contemporary relevance – to Latin America and the worldwide onward march of neo-liberalism.
The download costs £2.06 – it’s a bargain, but we would say that! By all means forward on the link to anyone you think might be interested in downloading the e-book.
To get the download, just go to: Amazon
Adelante!! – and hope you like the e-book
Nuestra Jeshu junto con la bailarina chilena Ale Caro participarán en el evento ‘Cityscapes’ . Éste es un proyecto de ‘pop-dance’ urbano que se realizará literalmente en el trayecto comprendido entre Winter Gardens y la Train Station.
Es una puesta en escena creada a través del espacio que comienza en el Winter Gardens a las 12.00 y se desplaza , pasando por Millenium Galleries, anfiteatro de Hallam, Howard Street, para terminar en la estación de trenes. El recorrido de bailes dura aproximadamente 40 minutos.
Junto con el abrazote Jeshu dice “Esperamos verlos ahí este sábado 20 de junio al medio día y, please, spread the word!“

Felipe says “Thanks to all of you who have donated and shared the story over the last six weeks, we have secured our essential funding to turn NAE PASARAN into a big cinema feature film ! It’s a huge achievement already and testament to the importance for many to have their history told on a large canvas. The success of this campaign is a fantastic push as we approach pitching the project to complete our full budget.”
Congrats Felipe and many, many thanks to all of you who helped the project to become a success!!
