This is a powerful video by Trotskyist film maker, Ken Loach. It's a letter written by a survivor of the U.S. sponsored coup in Chile to the survivors of 911 in NYC. It's a moving recollection of the U.S. sponsored coup against the socialist government of Chile that took place on Sept. 11, 1973 in which over 30,000 leftists were murdered for the sake of American corporate profits. There's a lot to remember about this date in history - and a lot of lessons to be learned if only we avoid the tunnel vision of history that is all too common.
