Revolutionary Dreams: From Chile to Wales

by José Cifuentes

José Cifuentes and his partner, as student activists, worked to help poor people improve their lives. But a military coup on 11 September 1973, supported by the USA, put an end to ordinary Chileans’ hopes for a fairer society. The brutal dictatorship of General Pinochet hunted down all opposition. This is José’s story, in his own words.

Revolutionary Dreams is also available for purchase in Catalan and Spanish.

About José

José Cifuentes grew up in Chile and came of age when the popular socialist President Allende came to power, inspiring young people to dream of a fairer world. Then came the brutal military coup led by General Pinochet. He and María Cristina worked for the Committee for Peace and the Vicarage of Solidarity, organisations which documented human rights abuses and supported victims’ families. When the danger grew too great, in 1977 they and their baby daughter Rocío were lucky to find sanctuary abroad … in Wales.
