Santiago, Chile: Photographic Record of the 2020 September 11 Demonstrations

-September 10 in Maipú

Encapuchadxs [hooded ones] erected barricades and displayed a banner in memory of Claudia López in the vicinity of the Las Parcelas de Maipú metro station on the eve of a new September 11 commemoration.

-September 11th during the Pilgrimage, Santiago Centro and Recoleta.

The traditional Pilgrimage to the General Cemetery was held under the watchful eye of an exaggeratedly repressive contingent. It commemorates those who died and disappeared as a result of State terrorism during the 17 years of military dictatorship and 30 years of neo-liberal pseudo-democracy.

As usual, after constant harassment by the police forces, in front of the cemetery the demonstrators erected barricades and confronted the police who violently charged, making selective arrests inside the cemetery, dispersing with extreme violence the demonstrations of support and solidarity on this dark date in Chile’s history.

-September 11th in Pedro Aguirre Cerda.

The people of the battle-hardened commune of Pedro Aguirre Cerda demonstrated with a march to commemorate the 47th anniversary of the coup d’état, when the Chilean right-wing, led by the military, imposed on us the model of life that to this day bends us and condemns us to live in constant indignity.

With memory intact and the dead ahead, the organized people have set out to end the dictatorship once and for all. Neither military nor oligarchs.

No more dictatorship!

-September 11th in Villa Portales.

Organised residents of the emblematic Villa Portales held a meeting in commemoration of the victims of the dictatorship and the pseudo-democracy of the neoliberal regime.

No more dictatorship, freedom for all the prisoners of the revolt!

-11 September in Las Torres in Peñalolén

No one is forgotten!

-September 11th in Independencia.

The streets of Independencia were also present this September 11th.

Our best tribute is to keep fighting, nothing and nobody is forgotten!

-September 11th in Peñalolén.

As always, Lo Hermida Presente!

Neither the pandemic nor State terrorism is stopping the people of Lo Hermida in Peñalolén who this Friday took to the streets of their town again to commemorate September 11.

Note: Some photographs and reports by the comrades of Frente Fotográfico registering a new day of memory and action for September 11 in certain communes. In times of pandemic, with a state of emergency and militias in the streets of Santiago de Chile.
