Documentary screening and panel discussion on political resistance in Chile.

About this Event

Speakers: Sara De Witt, Ana María Pelusa, Dr Hernando Fernández-Canque (Glasgow Caledonian University), Dr Sergio Vasquez (Sheffield)

Chair: Dr Tanya Harmer (LSE International History)

More than a million Chileans took to the streets to demand greater democracy and a new constitution in October 2019. They were met with severe repression from the army and police that reminded many of the violence used by General Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship (1973-1990). To reflect on the current situation and parallels with the past, we will be showing the film “Crafting the Resistance” (2018). The film will be followed by a panel discussion with some of those in the film who fought against the Chilean dictatorship in the 1970s and 1980s.

This event is sponsored by the department’s The Americas in World History Research Cluster.
