Stop Destruction Of Victor Jara Mural At
SF Bernal Heights Library-Rally-Music Speakout
Musicians, artists and community activists rallied on 9/16/2012 to protest
the destruction of the Victor Jara mural at the San Francisco Bernal
Heights library. Chilean musician Victor Jara was murdered in
September 16, 1973 in a military coup supported by the United
States. The coup supported by the United States took place on
September 11, 1973. The corporate controlled San Francisco Library
Commission and the Friends of the Library in San Francisco have
pushed to censor and remove political community murals at San
Francisco libraries. Artist Holly Near and other artists have publicly
called on Mayor Ed Lee not to go ahead with the destruction of the
mural. At the same time the community was not informed of the
plan to destroy the mural.
