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.

copy-Chile-40-Years-On-LogoSmall1Learn about the Chilean experience, via video interviews with exiled Chileans living in Britain. They tell their life stories, from their initial inspiration as Allende and Popular Unity came to power in 1970, the extraordinary achievements 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 euphoria of being part of huge social advances, the repression they suffered, the solidarity they received, and their arrival in Britain to make new lives as exiles and activists.

Save the Mural!: Open letter to Aidan Grills, CEO Leeds University Union

unnamed (1)

Dear Aidan Grills

Chief Exec of Leeds University Union

We are writing to you on behalf of the Leeds Chilean Community and the Chilean Community Association  South Yorkshire (ChileScda) after we heard about the ‘Union Upgrade Project’ taking place at the Student Union Building, specifically the area where a Chilean mural has been for the last 42 years.

This mural came into gaining such an important place in the Union as it is a very emotive piece which reflects the history and lives of many Leeds residents who came to this city after a very horrific time in Chile, South America.

In 1973 the democratic government led by President Salvador Allende was overthrown by a military junta headed by General Augusto Pinochet. The consequences of this military coup resulted in thousands of people murdered, tortured, disappeared and exiled.
