Today in Labor History June 4, 1932: Chilean politicians and the military carried out a coup d'etat, installing Marmaduke Grove, who declared Chile a "socialist republic." However, workers were given no means to participate. The Communist Party and many unions opposed the new government because it was run by the military and not by the workers. However, the “socialist” government did temporarily halt evictions and ordered the “Caja de Crédito Popular” to return tools and clothes that workers had pawned there. They also pardoned everyone who participated in the Sailors' mutiny of 1931, when enlisted men rebelled against their officers and the state. Furthermore, they provided free meals to the unemployed. Twelve days later, the military ended the "workers republic." That same year, Farabundo Marti led a short-lived, but successful communist revolution of indigenous peasants in El Salvador. It was violently suppressed by General Martinez a few months later in La Matanza, a genocide of up to 40,000 mostly indigenous people. Martinez then became the first head of state to officially recognize Hitler as leader of Germany.

Nach Angaben von Bloomberg belief sich die Kapitalflucht aus #Argentinien, #Brasilien, #Chile, #Kolumbien und #Mexiko im Jahr 2022 auf rund 137 Milliarden US-Dollar. Das ist ein Anstieg um 41 Prozent gegenüber 2021 und der höchste Wert seit 2010.

Ricardo Levins Morales poster catalog run-through, p060: Chile 11 de Septiembre. Made in 1978.

The 1973 CIA coup vs. the Chilean people was the first famous atrocity to claim the date of September 11. Chile had been the model for challenging oppression through electoral victories and its destruction had a powerful impact on Latin American consciousness. The quote from Simon Bolivar captures widespread rage against the U.S.

A vertical poster mainly featuring a black background topped by the silhouette of four military figures holding rifles with bayonets. In scrawled red text across the middle are the words "CHILE 11 de Septiembre 1973;" underneath this in white are a series of concerned faces. In the upper left (in black) and bottom right (in white) in small block capital letters is this quote in Spanish and English from Simon Bolivar: "The United States appears destined by providence to plague America with miseries in the name of liberty." "Los Estados Unidos parecen destinadosd por la providencia para plagar la America de miserias a nombre de la libertad."

Since we've just recently started up on Mastodon, we thought it might be fun to run through Ricardo's whole catalog from start to finish. With 5+ decades worth, this may take a while... lets see how it goes!

Starting in 1978: this poster honors Chilean folk singer Violetta Parra. "Yo no tomo la guitarra por conseguir un aplauso. Yo canto la diferencia que hay de lo cierto a lo falso. De lo contrario no canto."

Above her and to the left is a quote in small block lettering, in both English and Spanish: "I do not play the guitar for applause. I sing the difference that there is between what is true and what is false; otherwise I do not sing. Violetta Parra, Chilean folk singer."

Memories from #Chile 🇨🇱 This is a Pakana Monk, a gigantic wind-molded pillar of volcanic rocks in the Tara area, close to San Pedro de Atacama, 4000 m above sea level. Pakana Monks (also known as Tara Sentinels or Tara Moais) are scattered over several hectares in this region, creating a rather eerie and alien scenery. This one is a few dozens meters high, and in the background you can glimpse the Aguas Calientes Salt Flat. #geology #geoscience #EarthScience #LandscapePhotography

A tall and thin rocky structure, brown and with a roughly cylindrical shape, rises above the ground in an otherwise flattish desert landscape. In the background there's a blue and white salt flat, and some mountains in the distance, under a clear blue sky. comes with the evidence we always knew existed.

Many people imagine professional astronomers hunched over a #telescope and taking notes. We no longer work that way, as light captured by the telescope is registered by complex instruments. But sometimes it's fun to use your eyes!

I took this pic a few years ago, when we removed one of the instruments of ESO's Very Large Telescope in #Chile. A screen was temporarily attached in its place, and we used it to project the #Moon and show it to everyone at the observatory

Here are two images of ESO’s Very Large Telescope, as seen from the air above the mountain top where it sits. The surrounding area is a mountainous desert region, the Atacama Desert in Chile. The left picture shows the telescopes under construction. Each of the large unit telescopes is cylindrical in shape, with the leftmost one nearing completion while progressively less has been built of the telescopes on the right. By comparison, the right hand image shows the VLT today, with all four Unit Telescopes and surrounding auxiliary equipment complete.

Pew pew! Here's a pic of the #MilkyWay I took a few years ago from ESO's Paranal Observatory in #Chile. The four yellow lines are lasers from the Very Large Telescope –– we use them to excite sodium atoms high up in the atmosphere, creating artificial "stars" that allow us to correct atmospheric turbulence and get very sharp images.

Occasionally we also use the lasers to play with cats on other planets 🐱

An image of the night sky sprinkled with thousands of stars. A bright orange band crosses the image diagonally like a river, split in two by a central dark band of dust. Many other thin dusty filaments fill up the image, like smoke. Bright nebulae with vivid colours like yellow or magenta are spread throughout the image. Four bright yellow lasers appear from the bottom, converging towards a point at the centre of the image.

... people’s needs — food, shelter, water, transportation — are not always explicitly connected to energy, and even when they are, there are ways to dramatically reduce the amount of energy required to meet them.
That conclusion contradicted several decades of economic theory that suggested that increased energy use and, by extension, increased consumption would always equate to a longer lifespan and improved quality of life.

“Fossil fuel use does not contribute significantly to improvements in life expectancy.”

Something that really struck me in my last trip to #Chile was the decline in US soft power. Rock is pretty much dead. The cool cats are now much more into Tiktok fads and anime, Kpop dancing and Fortnite. The kids have pivoted to Asia. And why not? What is a more pleasant escape from the pain of adolescence, war movies and mass shootings? Or the dogged pursuit of cuteness?

Current mural for BrigadaLuna in Malmö, Sweden.

Orange-ish background, like fire, with black/white art and white text.

The art is based on the iconic photo from "el estallido" in Chile, with people covering a statue and waving flags. It looks like a tower.
We have changed the flags to the Mapuche flag on top and also added the Palestinian flag.
The tower of people is centered in the mural.

There is also a jailed eye set in blueish greys and red, behind fat, black bars.

In the background of the b/w art; a huge setting sun.

Hovering within the sun: The lanografias sent by Chilean women to their imprisoned loved ones.

The text:
Left of the tower: Frige de politiska fångarna (translation: Free the political prisoners)
The letters have bars in them, to represent imprisonment.

Right of the tower: 50 år av minnen chile-suecia (transl: 50 years of memories chile-sweden)

I really miss the night sky in #Chile , in particular the Magellanic Clouds – two dwarf galaxies orbiting our home galaxy, the Milky Way.

In the Mapudungun language in south-central Chile they are known as lafken, labken or künchalabken (“the lagoons”), as well as rünanko (“the water wells”).

Here I photographed them above ESO's Paranal Observatory in northern Chile.

A vertical image of the night sky over a desert landscape. There's a road, flanked by very faint yellow light indicators, leading to the flattened summit of a mountain. Several metallic-looking telescope domes are on that mountain-top. In the starry sky there are two blue nebulous clouds, one larger than the other – the Magellanic Clouds.

At some distance from the viewer, he is standing by a fence in front of water, holding an arm as if he were holding a hand. Beside him there is nothing. In front of him his image is reflected in the water and there is someone standing next to him. Probably it is he himself.
