CHILE 1973 - THE OTHER SEPTEMBER 11
A Chilean Cultural Evening and Pena
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Following September 11th, 2001, much of the world has been involved in
the "war on terror". The September 11th, 1973 military coup in Chile
(and the complicity of the US State Department, the Central Intellegence
Agency and US multinationals) has been conveniently forgotten. The coup
d'etat resulted in over 10 000 people (men, women and children) being
assassinated.

This year, Australia's Chilean community, many of whom were forced into
exile during the decades of terror, together with Australians who have
worked in solidarity since the coup d'etat, will remember the 30th
anniversary of the coup. A commemorative cultural eveing is being held
at Trades Hall including music, exhibitions, films, dance, and Chilean food.

TAO TE CHING
(The Way and its Virtue)

31. Maintaining Peace
Weapons of war are instruments of fear,
and are abhorred by those who follow the Tao.
The leader who follows the natural way
does not abide them.

The warrior king leans to his right,
from whence there comes his generals' advice,
but the peaceful king looks to his left,
where sits his counsellor of peace.
When he looks to his left, it is a time of peace,
and when to the right, a time for sorrow.

Weapons of war are instruments of fear,
and are not favoured by the wise,
who use them only when there is no choice,
for peace and stillness are dear to their hearts,
and victory causes them no rejoicing.

To rejoice in victory is to delight in killing;
to delight in killing is to have no self-being.

The conduct of war is that of a funeral;
when people are killed, it is a time of mourning.
This is why even victorious battle
should be observed without rejoicing.

- Lao Tzu
