English language interview with three Chileans (one of whom is the official representative of the Chilean Socialist Party in Australia) who arrived in Australia to escape torture and repression at the hands of the Pinochet regime which came to power in 1973 in a US supported coup against the elected socialist President Salvador Allende. They discuss the implications of the recent election of Michele Bachelet, Chile's first woman president, and the second socialist president since Allende. They recall the events of the 1970s, and meetings with Michele Bachelet who also came to Australia as a refugee in the 1970s, after her father had been tortured and killed. Their delight at the election result is tempered with by memories of their experiences at the hands of the fascists, who still have considerable clout in Chile.
