THIS WEEK AT COMMUNITY CHURCH

In 1970, Chileans elected a socialist President for the first time in their country, Dr. Salvador Allende, to 6-year presidential period. By 1973 the U.S. and the wealthy in Chile convinced a majority of right-wing generals to overthrow the democratically elected government. General Pinochet assumed power by force and established a ruthless dictatorship. In 1989, the dictatorship gave way to “democracy”. How much have things changed since then? This talk will answer that question.
Sergio Reyes was born in Chile in 1954. In 1976, after 3 years in Pinochet’s prisons, he arrived as an exile in the U.S. He has remained active in progressive and revolutionary politics in the U.S., in solidarity with liberation struggles around the world, for international workers rights and immigrant rights. Additionally, Sergio also writes and plays Latin American revolutionary music.
Music by Sergio Reyes. Followed by a friendly luncheon, all are welcome to stay!
Sunday, December 6th at 3 p.m. at First Church of Roxbury, Boston MA 02119, near Roxbury Crossing T stop
