An Exhibition from The Museum Of Memory and Human Rights of Chile

The exhibit is comprised of a selection of 34 photographs and 20 posters chosen from more than a 1,000 pieces donated to the museum.  It tells a visual story of an extended period of violation of human rights during the military dictatorship from 1973 to 1990.

It forms the evidence necessary to denounce the Pinochet regime’s brutality and injustice in a period of dictatorship. It is also meant to show the practice of state terrorism: executions, disappearance, imprisonment, torture, exile and censorship which underlies all such periods of dictatorship and repression.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
