Protesters Commemorate Murder of Revolutionary Singer in Chile (16/9/2020)

Protesters took to the streets in Santiago on the anniversary of the murder of Communist Revolutionary and singer Victor Jara by the US-backed fascist Pinochet regime. 47 years later, protesters still remember, and turned out in the tens of thousands in the streets in his honor. The clip below is from 13 December 2019 during the height of the Chilean Revolution.

Victor Jara, a militant of the Chilean communist party, was arrested after the US-backed far-right coup against Salvador Allende and brutally tortured (ranging from humiliations to physical violence, including breaking his fingers, burning him or cutting his tongue) until, four days later, he was murdered by the regime’s armed forces. He was shot over 44 times on the 16th of September.
