The Bay Area Remembers Chile: September 11, 1973 Remembrance Day

Join the Chilean Exile Community and friends in commemorating the 44th anniversary of the 1973 Chilean coup d’etat, which ousted the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende and lead to the disappearance and murders of thousands of Chileans.

This event includes an outdoor candlelight vigil and installation, songs of resistance by local Chilean musicians and members of the La Peña Chorus, and an art exhibit featuring rare revolutionary posters from La Peña’s private archive collection and original art by local Chilean artists inspired by their experiences since the coup.

Chilean food, wine and beer will be for sale, with proceeds benefiting La Peña Cultural Center.

There is no door cover for this event, but donations to La Peña are welcome and greatly appreciated!

La Peña Cultural Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating inter-cultural understanding and social justice through the arts since 1975.
