Chilean Exiles and the World University Service (WUS) research project.

Chilean Exiles and the World University Service is a project run by Professor Alison Ribeiro de Menezes and Professor John King to explore the role of UK groups and activists in assisting refugees and exiles after the fall of Allende in 1973. The project will run until spring 2019 in collaboration with the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago, Chile, and the Modern Records Centre at Warwick.

Through oral interviews, the project aims to compile a record of Chilean exile experiences that will offer insights into the benefits of the WUS program in supporting exiles to continue with their studies, rebuild their lives, settle in the UK or elsewhere, or return to Chile.

“We would like to hear from anyone who benefitted from a WUS scholarship and who would like to contribute their story to our project. We are happy to travel to meet anyone in their hometown, where feasible, of course,” says Professor Ribeiro de Menezes.

If you are interested in contributing to the project, please get in touch with Alison:  [email protected] or  [email protected].

The graphic novel ‘Introduction to Chile’ in PDF version now!

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.

Somehow an ebook version brings out sharply the story’s contemporary relevance – to Latin America and the worldwide onward march of neo-liberalism.
