Chile: State and revolution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The electoral victory of Unidad Popular (the Popular Unity party) in 1970, which brought socialist Salvador Allende to the Presidency, marked the beginning of the "Chilean Road to Socialism". The following three years witnessed a dramatic rise in class struggle but ended with a violent coup d'état and mass repression of the working class militants who dedicated their lives to the fight for socialism. The victory of SYRIZA in Greece has re-raised the relationship between electoral victories and state power as a live question - one that the Chilean experience can help provide lessons to for revolutionary socialists today.
