Program #CULT014. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 09, 1982.

This special program explores the bloody 1907 massacre of mine workers in northern Chile. It was an important event in Chilean and Latin American labor history. For decades after there was no official acknowledgment. Finally, in 2007 the government conducted a public commemoration of the centenary, including a day of national mourning. This people's cantata was composed in 1969 by Luis Advis. Spanish narrator is Hector Duvauchelle. English narrator is Suzanne MacAuley. Produced by David Barsamian as part of his Ganges to the Nile series on KGNU.
