Chileans March against War, Obama's Visit


Santiago de Chile - Leftist parties, professors, students, human rights activists, and the Chilean people in general are marching Sunday against U.S. President Barack Obama''s visit and warmongering in the Middle East.

Since very early today, Chileans joined a demonstration that marched from Italia Square to Armas de Santiago Square, where a cultural-political rally will take place with the motto For Peace and Against War.

The announcement on Thursday of the protest referred to the U.S. interventionist policies, and condemned the warmongering against the Middle East, and the attack on Libya by the United States and its allies is expected to be strongly condemned by the protesters.

When calling to join the demonstration Sunday, less than 24 hours after Obama arrived in Chile, organizers urged the United States to respect the emancipation and liberation processes in Latin America, and to stop attacking Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Bolivia.

They also urged Obama to assume his country's responsibility in the military coup against the Salvador Allende government, an incident that has allowed serious human rights violations go unpunished in the country, according to Chilean leftists.

In addition, the protesters called for lifting the prolonged U.S. blockade of Cuba, and to immediately release the five Cuban antiterrorists imprisoned in the United States for more than 12 years.

Obama is very far from honoring the Nobel Peace Prize he was given in 2009, said the president of the Federation of Chilean Students, Camila Vallejos.
