Coming write-up: Chile votes to overhaul its constitution
"The votes are in. Yesterday Chileans decided by an overwhelming majority to scrap and replace their dictatorship. Eric. Constitution. Bluesy Thomas. WHO Come in. Give President Sebastian. Benita said it was the beginning of a new path for the country. Wants to soon peretti Chile's constitution was introduced under Augusto. Pinochet the dictator who ruled by terror for nearly two decades he lost power after a plebiscite in nineteen eighty eight. United in opposition to the regime of General Pinochet was the biggest political rally yet seen in the capital, but the constitution remained. Later governments amended it dozens of times but for many Chileans, the constitution's most fundamental provisions to blame for the inequality and poor public services that plague one of America's wealthiest countries. Year ago mass protests erupted. At least thirty people died and thousands were injured. There were yet distractions in the run-up to yesterday's vote. Now the country will get a chance to recast its national charter quietening some concerns but perhaps raising new ones. Chileans blame the constitution of nine hundred for lot. That's wrong with the country Brooke Unger is our America editor in many ways looking from the outside there's not a lot wrong with Chile. It's got one of the highest per capita incomes in the region. It's reduced poverty very dramatically. It's had political stability for the past thirty years but there are also big problems and people who have been growing increasingly unhappy with those problems over the past decade decade and a half. So what were the issues with it if the outcome has seen? So stable in the meantime, several things inequality remain relatively high and I think most important really was a feeling that large because of the constitution the way. The public services were delivered resulted in low quality and great unfairness the constitution kind of privileges, the private sector in Chile, and the reason for that is that Pinochet had kind of an intellectual alliance with the so-called University of Chicago economists who were very pro free market and they wrote into the constitution lots of guarantees to protect the private sector and to give the private sector a pretty substantial role in providing public services like health care pensions, education and people have looked at that and become increasingly unhappy with the results of that system has brought. So how do you think it is that a rewriting of the constitution will will address all of these concerns I, think that the new Constitution will probably end up making Chile more social democratic than it is, for example, the constitution now says that people have a right to contribute either to a privately run or a publicly run healthcare system, which has resulted in a kind of a two tier system where the richer in the private system and most people are in the public system and the bulk of people feel that they're not very well served by that kind of two tier system. So I would expect some language that would allow the state to play a greater role in the health system that would allow taxation to play a role in funding a public health system and one of the things that reformers wants to. Do is to insert this idea of equality of opportunity into the constitution which doesn't have the American meaning. It basically means that they want the state to be in a position to ensure that all Chilean's are treated equally, and so that will I think lessen the role of the private sector in the provision of public services, and that's the real crux of it. What voters most want changed other things that probably will change some people say that the Chilean system is sort of hyper presidential. The president has a lot of power in Chile only the president can initiate tax and spending bills. For example Congress can do that. The president can determine which issues congress prioritizes the regions in Chile don't. have their own tax-raising powers. So all of these things tend to concentrate power in the capital and in the hands of the presidency and I would expect to see that being changed. It'll be interesting to see whether the constitution's ban on abortion is upheld. Imagine that will be a very controversial issue. So Chile is at a point where it could change in lots of pretty profound ways but I mean how even to go about that to start from scratch on kind of the working document of a whole country one of the choices that voters made yesterday was on how to rewrite the new constitution and what they decided was that there would be a newly elected assembly consisting entirely of. New Representatives which under the law will be half female and an election that new body will be held in April and that body will then I believe have a year to write a new constitution. So it really will in theory start with a blank piece of paper. One of the complicating issues will be that as this assembly is sitting and arguing and drafting chilly, we'll be moving into a political season. There are presidential elections, national elections to be held in November of next year. So it's pretty foreseeable that you know the politics of the presidential election will feed into the thinking of the drafters and vice versa it's going to be a very fraud I suspect and controversial process so. The potential gains seem fairly clear here, but is there some risk when starting from scratch like this? I think there is a risk Chile has in many ways been a pretty successful country and you can imagine that you know taken to extremes chilly ends up moving not so much in the direction of social democracy. But in the direction of populism being one of the things that probably will happen is that you'll have new rights inserted into the constitution like a right to housing for example now, that doesn't sound like a bad thing but the question will be is the government than on the hook for kind of bottomless spending on all these new rights spending that will either result in. Enormous deficits or crushing taxation I think the danger of that is limited to some extent by the fact that each clause of the new constitutional have to be approved by a two-thirds majority of this assembly. So I think the risks are limited to some extent. It was interesting to see that the very richest districts voted against the idea of a new constitution and after the results of the vote were clear you we had celebrations in the middle of Santiago. So instead of protests, there was a great sense of celebration. So I think that's a sense of national consensus process needs to happen, and it'll be very interesting to see if that national consensus hold up as the process actually gets underway. Brooke.

"In government hands. In order to bail them out, the government was forced to renegotiate the bad loans, increase import duties, and increased the gas tax. These moves caused foreign lenders to panic over whether, Chile, would default on their loans. The Chilean government confidently promised that they could pay what they already owed and could continue to do. So in the future, of course, most of the people actually footing the bill where the tax paying citizens. And by the middle of Nineteen eighty-three, those taxpayers had finally had enough of the rampant corruption within the Pinochet regime since the nineteen seventy-three coup, the remaining socialists and communists who hadn't been killed or arrested had been forced into hiding. Opposition leaders. Labor. Leaders, and college students alike knew it was better to keep their mouths shut. But with the. Despair of the early eighties. The left saw an opportunity to fight back. In May nineteen eighty-three organized labor leaders did the thinkable they for a nationwide general strike? No one knew what the response would be an after a decade of brutal oppression. It's likely that only minimal participation was expected. Instead on May Eleven Chileans brought the entire country to a screeching halt. Thousands upon thousands of people walked off the job and marched through the streets in Santiago. The protests lasted well into the evening. It didn't stop there for five months. Chile was consumed with protests, marches, and strikes for the first time ever the people boldly and publicly expressed their displeasure with Pinochet. Translating that anger into actual change was a more difficult problem. The left was disorganized with various socialist communist and democratic parties and workers who participated in the strikes could be fired or arrested forcing people to reconsider their participation in the protests. But the strikes had at least spurred, Pinochet into, action. He figured that if he could fix the economy, then perhaps the protests would stop after a couple of fits and starts Pinochet finally installed yet another new Finance Minister Hernandez de he in Nineteen eighty-five. While, he was very much a free market advocate. He wasn't afraid to use the government as a tool to help failing businesses if needed. He implemented more regulation especially in banking and agriculture, and he figured out a way to renew the confidence of foreign lenders by agreeing to debt equity swaps. Essentially investors agreed to pay off, she lays debt in exchange for a piece of various state industries within a year. The World Bank was back to approving massive loans, which in turn inspired foreign lenders to invest in Chilean Industries. Older, manufacturers were also able to adapt to the changing markets, for example, as constable and Valenzuela explained in their book. Collapsing textile companies were merged together to produce higher quality cloth for export and a Fiat Assembly plant was turned into a refrigeration facility for produce. Be He's policies, put Chileans back to work and by nineteen eighty eight, the unemployment rate fell under nine percent for the first time since the mid nineteen seventies. However, many of these workers were earning far below minimum wage installing. Him was arguably the Smartest Move Pinochet made during the nineteen eighties to the Socialists and Communists, the economic turnaround wasn't enough. The. Thousands who had died or disappeared would never be forgotten. And as they continued their fight. Pinochet's violent response would put him at odds with his most important ally. The United, states. Coming up she lands decide they've had enough of Gustavo Pinochet now back to the story. After a brief but costly economic depression in the early eighties, Chile's economy had once again managed to bounce back and Gustavo Pinochet finally accepted that unfettered capitalism had done more harm than good. But to the leftists removing Milton, Friedman's cronies from the finance department wasn't enough to make up for years of torture and murder. Pinochet was still a brutal dictator who needed to be brought down at all costs. The most radical leftist groups. Especially, the Communists decided to answer Pinochet's violence with violence of their own between nineteen, eighty, five and nineteen, eighty, six on over one thousand bombings were reportedly committed by guerrilla groups as CIA closely monitored Pinochet's reaction to the Communist violence, and despite the Reagan administration's anti-communist Dogma, even they said that supporting Pinochet could irreparably damage America's image. especially. Since it went against the newly established Reagan doctrine in February of Nineteen, eighty, five, Reagan proclaimed that America would support freedom fighters in the quest for democracy against. Soviet style tyranny. Essentially, it was the very same justification for supporting the contras in Nicaragua. Pinochet represented exactly that kind of tyranny. He was just as authoritarian as the Soviet Union. It was obvious. There wasn't going to be a democracy in Chile, with Pinochet at the helm. Open arms support for him would make Reagan looked like a hypocrite, but Reagan still wasn't ready to give up on Pinochet just yet. Instead, he hoped to influence Pinochet into granting more democracy to Chileans. In the fall, of nineteen, ninety-five Reagan made his intentions known in a personal letter to be no shea delivered by ambassador. Harry Barnes although Reagan was still committed to ending communism. He told, Pinochet. I feel even more strongly than ever that evident progress towards full democracy in Chile is needed, but Pinochet had no desire to give up his power. He wants called the border along Argentina, my border and the government's treasury my pockets. It was obvious that he didn't care about the people of Chile as much as remaining in complete control between the human rights violations and the clear lack of support for democracy. The United States new, a breaking point was near. It came in July nineteen, eighty, six, Rodriguez. US was ten years old when he and his family fled Chile for the United States. In May nineteen eighty-six, the nineteen year old Rojo's dropped out of high school and return to Santiago to participate in the demonstrations against. Pinochet. And to document them with his camera on July. Second row, House participated in a demonstration on the outskirts of Santiago. Suddenly he and another protestor eighteen year old Carmen Kintana were surrounded by soldiers and beaten without provocation. The soldiers doused row house and Kintana with a flammable substance and lit them on fire. Their bodies were discovered later in a ditch north of Santiago. They were taken to a rural medical clinic without a burn unit and the military refused to let them be moved to a major hospital four days later on July, Sixth Rodrigo Rojo's died. Kintana said. But was left heavily scarred because row house was an American citizen. The murder was widely reported in the American media. Politicians in Washington D.? C. Were completely shocked by the senseless act.

Nixon knew he had until the end of October when the Chilean Congress cast their votes to try and stop I N Day from winning. And no tactics were off the table on September. Fifteenth Nine Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy about a week after the Chilean Election Nixon met with National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger CIA director, Richard Helms and Attorney General John Mitchell to discuss how to prevent Ende's days ascension. This included spending ten million dollars to initiate a military coup. The US knew about the Chilean military's reputation as the keepers of democracy and had been funding the military for years. Perhaps they could play into the military's fears of socialist authoritarianism and sway them to step in. Early signs though indicated that the military didn't want to play ball. Three days before Nixon declared his covert war on chilly ambassador Edward Corey wrote to the State Department that he was certain. The military would refuse to cooperate in a coup a few weeks later on September twenty fifth. Corey sent another cable to Kissinger reaffirming that nothing had changed. He wrote. I am convinced that we cannot provoke a coup, and that we should not run the risks simply to have another Bay of Pigs at the C. I. A. Refuses to take no for an answer. They, went about creating a plan to so dissonance via propaganda and search for military officers who might collaborate unfortunately they faced a roadblock in the form of Commander in chief of the Chilean Army Rene Schneider. Schneider openly advocated for the peaceful democratic transfer of power, according to the Constitution and many of his disgruntled officers refused the CIA's offers, realizing the General Schneider was the major obstacle. The CIA simply decided to take him out of the picture. With the help of Chilean officers they devised a scheme to kidnap Schneider then a US back. Military Junta could establish order and prevent Allende from being inaugurated on October Twenty Second Nineteen Seventy General Schneider was driving through the streets of Santiago. Suddenly his car was ambushed Schneider instinctively reached for his side arm and shot at his attackers. The attackers fired back striking Schneider three times wounding him brutally. The kidnapping was a failure, but Schneider was out of the picture. He would succumb to his injuries three days later. The reaction to the assassination wasn't what the United States had anticipated. The people of Chile were outraged that such an act of violence would occur in the streets of Santiago days before Congress was supposed to vote on the president. It was clearly politically motivated. A groundswell of support for the democratically elected winner Salvador. Swept through the country, and through Congress on October twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, the Chilean Congress confirmed day as President. Ten days later he was sworn into office, becoming the first socialist elected president in Chile neither the United States nor fifty five year. Old Gustavo Pinochet were pleased with the outcome. And in a few short years they would become willing partners in a military coup that set the stage per seven teen years of dictatorship. Coming up.

You Know Shay waved smiled at least feigning solidarity during the transfer of power. But deep down, he was facing an internal struggle. Pinochet himself wrote that with great bitterness. We men of arms watched the road chilly had taken. And we felt that desperation of impotence. As a soldier sworn to protect the Fatherland I felt inhibited from acting because the instigator of chaos was the very government to which I owed obedience to that end Pinochet kept his anti Marxist opinions to himself, and continued serving faithfully when I end a asked him to command the Garrison in Santiago, Pinochet accepted.

Riot there's. An innocent relatively at looks like an innocent bystander who rolled a tear gas canister that was thrown his way shot by. Nonlethal weapon fractured his skull. This is outrageous and.

This works for some people in his base, but it. It's really not what most people think. The US military's for. Absolutely absolutely and in fact what we've seen here in Portland things have been challenging in the past. Things have been quieted down, but moving in here unlimited force. Things like taking bystanders with people who are not clearly identified of who they are not identified shoving them into unmarked cars and taking them away This is a banana republic. This is something that is not calculated to calm a difficult situation and we don't need it. Our governor, our mayor of the congressional delegation. Has. No interest in having this outside interference with people who are not trained in trying to help keep the peace and instead are inflaming the situation. I, you know the Charlie Pierce used the word Pinochet. and You bring up something that I think is important. You see these these officers I don't know what to call them, because we don't really know entirely who they are. They don't have badges. They don't have names. They could be from different federal. Organizations their cars. They're using unmarked vehicles. We just saw one there on the screen I. If this is a legitimate law enforcement effort, none of that would have to happen. Law Enforcement in this country are supposed to wear badges identify themselves have numbers. The cars say police or national guard or military on them. This is very unusual that it seems to be these the secret of tactics. Absolutely and if you're interested in keeping the peace and helping law enforcement, you would coordinate with the local police with the local authorities. They're not there at our. Invitation.

What do we do about the accountability issue? One of the reasons police have badges that you can identify them. These are these people are mask. They have gas mask on in many cases there in full. Combat Gear You think there's an effort here to escape accountability. Absolutely I mean this is the the operating mode of the trump administration mating responsibility, maybe trying to deflect attention from things that are responsibility dealing with the pandemic crow virus. And instead. Of having an opportunity here for people intervening. In a way that is just it. It's scandalous. We're going to work to try and have legislation that help rain this. Limit.

He's since retired from public life Bishop Michael Nuttal has also retired and lives in KwaZulu-Natal Luisa. Delgado. The presidential election in Brazil this month has served to revive memories of an earlier time in Latin America when military dictatorships coups and counter coups where the order of the day. Brazil was among several countries in the region to have been subjected to right wing military rule in the nineteen sixties seventies and eighties. Argentina Bolivia Paraguay and Uruguay were all in that group. And so two was chilly as each dictator fell from power. There was the awkward choice for the incoming authorities between Justice and stability in October nineteen ninety eight Britons. Legal establishment was drawn into such a dilemma after a Spanish judge ordered the extradition of the former Chilean leader Augusto Pinochet on charges of murder and torture in two thousand ten Lucy. Williamson spoke to a public relations expert who tried to help the former dictator out of a tight squeeze. Protests outside central London. General Pinochet's beliefs. Police not confirmed. This was no ordinary arrest. General Augusto Pinochet visiting the UK for back surgery with Chili's former president and travelling on a diplomatic passport the arrest of the former Chilean dictator general Augusta Pinochet in London has led to an official protest by Chile's government. It's deputy foreign minister Marianna Fernandez has just issued this statement. The Chilean government has presented a former protest note to the British government for what is considered by elation of diplomatic immunity granted to Senator Pinochet. It was a complete surprise because he was in Britain on diplomatic visit. He was a guest with the British government. He had a diplomatic visa and a diplomatic passport. And he was even met at the airport by a member of the foreign office VIP team, Patrick Robertson has made a career out of steering senior political figures three public relations crises what normally would happen in a situation. Like, this is that the foreign office would tip off visiting former head of state and then build leave before anything unwarranted happened. But clearly in this case, the powers that be decided that they wanted to proceed with the with the arrest and the way they did was horrified. I mean, it was just it was just the most undignified thing for us to do quickly make contact with his Representative and almost from twenty four hours from then I was working hard trying to advise the general and how to get out of England. But getting out of England wasn't going to be easy is charge for two crimes. Genocide and terrorism when for the general site. He's not immunity all the request to detain general. Pinochet had come from Spanish lawyers who accused him of murdering and torturing political opponents during his seventeen year rule. They argued that under international law European countries. Could try the general for serious crimes committed? Elsewhere, a large body of British public opinion supported the idea, but says Patrick Robertson the general himself now under house arrest in Wentworth remained unfazed by the crisis unfolding around him. The first time I met him was in this house on the Wentworth estate. And it was a peculiar thing because he was sitting at this large table, and we had English special branch police in controlling two of the rooms. Meanwhile, the rest of the house was controlled by the Chilean military and the leading figure among these was the cook who'd be bringing all these biscuits out in the former president Pinochet would be guzzling these these little biscuits and having cops T. So what happened in that first meeting? Did you come with? A plan. I came with a plan. But the problem was yet remember in the early stages. Everyone believed this going to be resolved in the high court very quickly by this case being thrown out. And I was absolutely convinced. That was not going to happen. Did you manage to convince Pinochet himself a fat? I'm not sure ever. Did. My Spanish was never good enough. Not sure by the way, that he ever involved himself to that extent of detail in any of these cases, if I have one criticism of him is that he's enormous delegator. I think that was obviously his great strength is is the president. But when you're trapped between the pincer movement of an angry Spanish, judge and the CPS on the other hand, you do need to be aware of what you're up against the CPS or Crown Prosecution Service argued that General Pinochet had no immunity from prosecution General Pinochet argued as a former head of state. He did the argument went on for months. You have to understand that you're going to do my job properly. You always have to be direct with your clients and tell them what you think you actually need to say to them. This is the only way that I can help you. This is what you need to do. There are some moments when they just have a blind spot or they cannot move for reasons that are utterly understandable to them. Not to me that's frustrating. And quite a lot of that happened in the Pinochet case. Because there were very few people. In fact in charge. You have Chilean army. You're the Chilean government Chilean military intelligence, you're the Chilean lawyers, and then you had the UK lawyers hired by the Chilean lawyers. And then you had me what's the one piece of advice, you wished he'd followed. He didn't. It was one point where I had a huge argument with him about the need to issue an article explaining his own personal situation, and his advisors said that that would reduce his dignity, and I said, you know, after fifteen months sitting in a baritone and Wentworth dignity had been substantially reduced as it is. And that it might be worth producing an article explaining his situation, but they steadfastly refused. What they did agree to do. However, it was to have tea related Thatcher. We try then turned into a media moment, which went live throughout the world. And half of chili woke up to watch this thing. Opportunity. We waited five months to see not only Augusta finish on television for the first time since his arrest in London. But also, Lady Thatcher, Lady Thatcher nicknamed. The iron lady was British former prime minister and a key ally of right wing leaders around the world. Comfortable here. I know how much we owed to you. For your health. During the Falklands campaign the tea party made headlines, but it made no difference to the case itself. Lawyers were always pretending that they were doing a marvelous job Ono's drawn some will win the case in the next court hearing all the rest of it. It didn't happen. It kept on going higher and higher and higher and there was zero success and from a legal perspective from day one. We didn't win a single significant hearing, in fact, the legal battle was moving against finish in one thousand nine hundred nine the Lord's ruled that Pinochet could be extradited for serious crimes allegedly committed after nineteen Eighty-eight when Britain had ratified the UN convention on torture. It was momentus decision overturning, the international tradition of immunity for former heads of state, but Patrick had already begun pushing a different idea an exemption on the grounds of Pinochet's ill health. He was a frail, man. There's no question about it. He was quite large and had to be moved around with care. I think what the media did was. That they took the impression that he was infirm of. Because of the fact that we moved them around in a wheelchair which was actually simply the easiest way to move around with a large escort. When you're trying to go from one hospital for check checkup to another back to his prison stroke, home it worked a doctor's report gave the British government reason enough to annul the extradition request and send General Pinochet home to Chile. Landed back in March two thousand to cheering crowds. Well, it was very funny. I remember watching the TV as he got off his airplane in Santiago lychee, and he was met by half the population of.

"There's a part of your brain dedicated to reminding you how responsible you are. It's kind of built into everybody and that sends off a vibe to everyone. And that's part of this internalized feeling and the best way I've ever heard this is described as like if you go into a huge piano store and Jayme your finger down on the middle key of that Pinochet like a c, the c string on every other peony will start to vibrate in the whole store, and that's how it is with humans. Like if I'm hitting no matter how my PIN looks, I'm plucking strings that are setting off strings and other at that other person. So in the end e your behavior off the clock. So to speak, plays a vital role in how you come off to other people. And that's what we talked about, like to get this authority to become an authority, there's five zones or five things that you've really got to get a handle on in your life in order to to connect that internalized feeling, which is the final trip wire of thority. There's a lot there I want to unpack as well. So going back to, again the dating example because it's so apt for this, you know when you finally started dating someone for a while and give you had a three, four, six one year, long relationship. Then you go, why the hell is it so easy for me to talk to women? Now, what the heck is going on here that's going on is your agenda is in try to find a girlfriend, gosh gun. So lonely. Don't don't want another Friday night like this. Your agenda is just I'm having a normal conversation with somebody and you don't have that sense of need in. Therefore you're agendas completely different. Your agenda is look. I don't have when I'm just chatting versus before we like don't sing. Signal how much you want to, you know, make out with this partisan or how much you want her to like you write. That kind of thing goes away because you've already got yourself in a relationship or at least with in general that should go away. And so you don't have that and you, you think I'm not doing anything different and true consciously, you're not, but your body, your hormones, your eyeballs, your pulse, all these things that are detectable by subconscious brain and not really something that we monitor consciously, especially in other people. Those are all detectable in. They're all different at that point in time. So true. And this is a great example to that have never really considered and I've been there. Yeah. I mean, that's that's I think why this is so apt is because everybody's been dating at some point or another. Almost everybody who's listening to this understands like, oh, okay. And so the way to fix that is just like what we talk about with any sort of body language, which is you can't just do what a lot of. These like pickup guys doing, which was like, oh, take up space, and they're like, great. I'm gonna put my leg on one chair, my arm, another chair, and I'm not going to let anyone sit down it. It's overcompensating and they go, oh, I need to learn how to appropriately take up space. No, you need to learn how to get your stuff together because then that other, those other things they fall into place on their own. You can't fake. And we've seen from body language experiments. You can't fake all of the right little tiny tweaks in your body. You have to have your mindset, right? Because your external body language is a reflection of your internal state. So it's actually just easier to get your mind right than it is to fake everything with your body. Twenty four, seven, and try to maintain it all so absolutely true.
