Soldiers burn leftist and ‘subversive’ literature in Santiago, several days after Augusto Pinochet’s coup d’etat. Santiago, Chile, September 23, 1973. 

Pinochet severely persecuted left leaning citizens in Chile, as well as any one who made criticisms of the regime – resulting in executions of up to 3,200 people. He was also responsible for the internment of 80,000 and the torture of tens of thousands of Chilean citizens. The coup d’etat that saw Pinochet rise to power was made possible by a three year long covert operation perpetrated by the United States, and once established the Pinochet regime was sustained by U.S military support.

Here we have photos on the historical Fort Sumter in South Carolina.
We had traveled to the fort on ferry and were able to capture these
awesome shots.

Fort Sumter in South Carolina is one of the most
famous areas pertaining to the American civil war. On December 20th,
1860, South Carolina delegated a special secession voted unanimously to
secede from the Federal Union. In November, Abraham Lincoln had been
elected President with no support from the southern states. The significance of this election was expressed in South Carolina’s Declaration of the immediate causes secession.
