A forgotten September 11th: speech by Salvador Allende

September 11, 1973: a military coup in Chile overthrows socialist president Salvador Allende, democratically elected three years earlier. We remember Allende from his speech to the UN a few months before his death, in which he denounced the excessive power of corporations that were subtracting power from democracies around the world.
