We talked with Clinton Fernandes, professor at University of New South Wales in Canberra, Australia, which is part of the Australian Defence Force Academy, about his role in getting documents showing Australia’s role in the 9/11/73 coup in Chile to depose Salvador Allende.
He talked about the background to the coup, Australia’s role in supporting American policies, and his efforts to get the documents showing those links. Outro music is Manzina’s “En Para.”
