A.N.S.W.E.R. Film Series: "The Battle of Chile (Part 3) The Power of the People"
with a report on the September 11, 1973 U.S.-backed coup of democratically elected president, Salvador Allende.

THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE deals with the creation by ordinary workers and peasants of thousands of local groups of "popular power" to distribute food, occupy, guard and run factories and farms, oppose black market profiteering, and link together neighborhood social service organizations. First these local groups of "popular power" acted as a defense against
strikes and lock-outs by factory owners, tradesmen and professional bodies opposed to the Allende government, then increasingly as Soviet-type bodies demanding more resolute action by the government against the right. 78 minutes, b&w, 1978.

"An exultant depiction of people becoming politicized and taking charge of their own destinies, responding ingeniously to further acts of oppression and attempting to reorganize every aspect of their lives along communal lines." - Los Angeles Times
