Describes the repression and injustice that exists in Chile and criticizes Canada's attitude.
Abstract: This report, prepared for use in Chile Solidarity Week, 1975, describes the repression and injustice which now exist in Chile as a result of the overthrow of the democraticaly elected, Allende government by the military junta. The systematic repression can be seen in the massive birth control campaign directed against the poor and working class women of Chile, in the disappearance of over 1500 Chileans since the coup, in the tortures used, and especially in the widespread starvation of the people.
The paper criticizes the attitude of the Canadian government toward the junta and outlines the various Canadian Companies which are investing in Chile. It includes suggestions for concrete action which might be taken by Canadians and a list of Chile Solidarity committee across Canada.
