Hundreds of real and suspected Allende supporters were gunned down in Santiago soccer stadium, that had been fashioned into a torture center and concentration camp. Across the nation, in the streets and military detention centers, Pinochet's fascist regime murdered and tortured tortured thousands in the first few months after 9/11/73.
1 milllion Chileans were forced into exile. To this day for Chileans this day is remembered as the day that marked the beginning of a 17 year reign of terror, when a dark shadow was cast upon the nation.A day that still has a profound resonance in daily life.
What was to follow was years of dictatorship,repression, torture, forced disappearances and fear.
We should never forget.
