In Chile, this day marks 40 years since Pinochet’s brutal coup d’état that overthrew the democratically-elected President Salvador Allende. For the U.S., 9/11 brought a state of war that has lasted more than ten years. For Chileans, it meant 17 years of military dictatorship. Top figures who lived both experiences comment on the lessons of those tragedies.

Guests: Ariel Dorfman, former adviser to the late President Salvador Allende, author and Professor of Literature, Duke University, Durham, NC, ; Victor Toro, top leader in the resistance to Chile’s military dictatorship, survivor of the Pinochet dictatorship prisons, activist seeking political asylum in the U.S., New York, New York
