Rob Jones RIP

RobJonesRIPWe at ChileScda were very saddened to learn about Rob Jones passing.  He was very supportive to all Chilean refugees that came to live in Sheffield fleeing Pinochet’s dictatorship.

Rob will be always remembered by our community for his passion and solidarity in denouncing the human rights atrocities of Pinochet’s dictatorship and also for opening his family doors to our compañera Silvia Parra (RIP).

We offer our heartfelt condolences and solidarity to Rob’s family, and to all his colleagues and friends in this difficult time.

Rob will be sorely missed.

Compañero Rob Jones, ¡Presente!, ¡Ahora y Siempre!

Crafting Resistance exhibition: The art of Chilean Political Prisoners. Warwick.


30th October – 17th November. Launch Event: 30th October, 16.30

 Modern Records Centre, University of Warwick, Coventry.

(Opening hours: Mon & Tues 9.00-17.00; Wed & Thrs 9.00 – 19.00; Fri 9.00 – 16.00)

During the military dictatorship of General Pinochet in Chile (1973-1990) thousands of political prisoners were held in concentration camps throughout the country. In most jails and ‘concentration camps’, prisoners organised themselves and crafted items from the very limited materials and improvised tools. The Crafting Resistance exhibition  brings together a collection of these artefacts, a testimony to the mental endurance of all those who were political prisoners under Pinochet regime.

Bill Michie

Funeral: Viernes 20 de Octubre 13.30 en Upper Chapel,

Unitarian Chapel, Sheffield City Centre. 45 Surrey Street, S1 2LG

Queremos dar a conocer a nuestra comunidad y amigos el sensible fallecimiento del Cro Bill Michie, acaecido el día viernes 22 de Septiembre en el Northern General Hospital, Sheffield.

Bill Michie, Consejal del Partido Laborista por Heeley, durante el tiempo que Sheffield fue conocida como la Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire, fue un luchador incansable por los derechos humanos y en la denuncia de la represión de la dictadura en nuestro país.

Durante su periodo como Consejal (1970-84) Bill Michie tomó la decisión en el Día del Trabajo de izar la Red Flag en el Town Hall él mismo después que funcionarios rehusaran hacerlo! Más tarde los tabloides lo llamarían “El Tercer Hombre Más Peligroso en Gran Bretaña”  –junto con el otro rebelde, J Corlbyn- por su abierta defensa de las políticas de izquierda.

Fue elegido Miembro del Parlamento en 1983 donde representó a Heeley hasta 2001.

Él y su compañera Judith, fallecida el año pasado, abrieron las puertas de su casa a una de nuestras compañeras a quien apoyaron hasta su vuelta a Chile.

Desde aquí hacemos llegar nuestras más sentidas condolencias a su familia.

Compañero Bill Michie ¡Presente, Ahora y Siempre!
