The other 9/11


Long before 9/11 meant something in the United States, it was a day of infamy in South America. This was the date in 1973 that a military junta led by Augusto Pinochet overthrew the democratically elected government of leftist Salvador Allende in Chile. The University of South Florida explores the results of that coup d'etat in a symposium titled "Human Rights, State Terrorism and Universal Jurisdiction," which includes discussions with experts from around the world. The program, put together by USF's Institute for the Study of Latin America and the Caribbean, features former Allende advisor Joan Garcés of Spain, who led efforts to bring Pinochet to justice, and the Chilean prosecuting judge in the case, Juan Guzman. Sat.-Sun., Sept. 11-12, 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m., Grace Allen Room at USF-Tampa Library, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, free admission, 813-974-8130.
