Call for memories of a 1970s mural uncovered in Leeds University Union

A Chilean mural has recently been uncovered in the Leeds University Union (LUU) building.

Created in 1976, the mural is the work of a group of Chilean refugees who came to Leeds to flee the dictatorship of the Pinochet regime. It was originally painted on a student common room wall, and later hidden behind a temporary kitchen.

In partnership with LUU, members of the Chilean community in Yorkshire, MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies students from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies are organizing an exhibition this term to recall the mural and its past.

The exhibition is part of a wider project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund which will oversee the restoration of the mural, and will be accompanied by a series of events.

The students’ exhibition will feature the real voices of Chileans who experienced first hand the military dictatorship at the time of the mural’s creation.

As part of the project, the students are also looking for anyone who remembers the mural in its earlier days, before it was covered up, to share their story.

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!

Ana’s husband was taken by security forces and became one of the disappeared; she lives a life between reality and fantasy which he inhabits with her. Pedro was arrested in 1973 and taken to a concentration camp in the north of Chile; his journey to retrace his past and face his demons takes him back to the place, where he was incarcerated. Miguel came as a young boy with his parents; he reconnects with his roots as an adult and questions his identity as he struggles between his adopted country and the place of his birth. This is a powerful representation of a deeply moving story that takes you on a journey of struggle, hope, fear and determination, highlighting critical moments that changed a nation.

Written by Francisco Carrasco; this new theatre piece incorporates theatre, storytelling, live music, movement and multi-media as well as songs from the Chilean popular song movement of the time.
