[Xmca-l] Re: Reminding the Chilean 9/11

Thanks, Peg. Victor Jara was such a great composer and musician. What a big lost for humankind was his murder by the military! We will never knew what songs he would have made if he would have survived torture and detention...  We lost them all... and with them the sounds of a time went missing, a cultural ethos dissapeared for ever to be replaced by hate, killings and the worst forms of sadism this country ever saw. And with him so many others, vanished for ever. What a sad day today, here in Chile, 40 years later. Overwhelming is the weight of memory of a police/ murdering state.
