My friend Ross is currently living in Chile and writes below with reference to the 40th anniversary of the murder of Allende and the rise to power of the American-backed Junta and, eventually, Pinochet. In 1985, I was one of twenty women funded by the Australian government to attend the United Nations Women's Forum in Nairobi, Kenya which ran in conjunction with the Women's Conference. The pictures below are of a quilt displayed at the Forum by women of Chile.
I am not a great photographer but have learned a lot with digital technology. I don't know what sort of camera I had when I was in Nairobi - probably some sort of instamatic!!!
The circular building with people in it represents the coliseum to which people were taken immediately after they were rounded up. Many of these people were never seen nor were they heard from ever again. Because of this, you can see the women with their placards depicted as they searched for their loved ones.
