Event description

Description

NAE PASARAN tells the incredible story of a group of Scottish factory workers 40 years ago against the Chilean dictatorship of General Pinochet one of the most repressive dictatorships of the 20th century.

40 years after their defiant stand in protest against Pinochet's Air Force in Chile,the group now Scottish pensioners discover the dramatic consequences of their solidarity.

1974, Scotland. Bob Fulton, a Rolls-Royce engine inspector, returns to his section, upset and anxious. He's just told his colleagues that a Chilean Air Force jet engine has arrived in the factory for maintenance and he's refusing to let it go through, in protest against the recent military coup of General Pinochet.

He's seen the images of people packed into football stadiums and the Chilean Air Force jets bombing Santiago, and now one of the engines from those very same planes is right there, waiting for inspection.

He can see his supervisors approaching, he knows he's about to be fired, yet he feels a responsibility...

This moving documentary about international solidarity for the people of Chile is a timely reminder at a time when US imperialism is continuously attempting to enforce regime change on democratically elected governments in South and Latin America.

Carlos Gonzales, political prisoner under Pinochet and President of Colectivo Unidad Democratic and Victor Figueroa author of Salvador Allende, a biography will introduce the film and lead the Q&A.

£10 tickets and £5 unwaged tickets also available from Mary on 07719383322 (text or call)
