The UDI avoided talking about the dictatorship and justified the overthrow of Allende

Within the framework of commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Coup d’état, which will take place on September 11, the GO BACK He reaffirmed that the overthrow of President Salvador Allende (1970-1973) was “something inevitable.”

Let’s remember that the UDI – like other parties in Chile Vamos – does not subscribe or adopt the method of commitments, that La Moneda and the right are proposed to the political world in this commemoration. In that sense, and without mentioning a military coup, they show that the events that happened on September 11, 1973 “marked” Chile.

“The events of September 11, 1973 marked and will continue to decisively mark the history of Chile. It requires a deep and permanent reflection on its causes, its meaning and political consequences for Chile,” they said in a statement.

For the UDI, this fact “has a direct cause leading to the extreme situation experienced in Chile, marked by hatred, the legitimacy of violence as a means of political action and the extreme polarization caused by a sector of the Chilean left.”

“A serious and honest reflection also requires the recognition that the political project of the Popular Unity, to lead Chile to a socialist revolution, is gradually opposed by the majority,” the statement added. In that sense, they accused Allende and the company of promoting a “confrontation” with the Comptroller’s Office, Supreme Court and Congress to impose their agenda.

“Between 1970 and 1973 there was a social, political and institutional collapse in which September 11 became something of an inevitability,” they continued.

The UDI added that “In 50 years, Chile has traveled a path of rebuilding our democracy and its institutions,” and affirmed that in this context, the purpose of the UDI “continues and will continue to be -with the Chileans.”

In that sense, it expresses its “unqualified condemnation of violations of fundamental rights (…) Chile must continue on the path of justice and reconciliation, through institutional, civil and criminal means,” and its “commitment to the Republic, in its broadest. and deepest sense: respect for institutions, democratic understanding, condemnation of violence, protection of freedoms and fundamental rights.”

“We are saddened that the Government has frustrated the majority’s desire for a celebration of unity, with reflection and democratic respect for incompatible visions,” they concluded their statement.
