We will meet at New York Street and Alameda, at the epicenter of downtown Santiago. To be more expecific we will meet at the corner of The Union Club. An ancestral social club of the chilean elite. The tour begins here in order to give the context necessary for to this tour: The Horror Downtown. This centric corner exemplifies the civic-military connection of the dictatorship. I develop this bit of information in depth in an upcoming novel, and that is why I do not go further into the explanation. The choice of venues is not random, there was no lack of resources. My thesis is that, it was not simply a tactic; the fact that administrative offices, torture and exterminion centers and their own private medical facilities were all located withih in the nerve center of the Capital city, safeguard the different opperations of the apparathus. But the sole purpose was to create a sense of overwelming fear, a sort of a schock therapy. Afterwards we will stroll a few blocks towards one of the oldest churches in Santiago: San Francisco, and in its shadow, a stone trow away, we will find and visit our first Torture Center, a site of memory and culture today: Londres 38. Thereafter we will cross Alameda avenue once more, go by the National Library and reach the skirts of the Huelen Hill or Santa Lucia, and here, in another patrimonial house; we will discover Clinica Santa Lucia.
Other things to note
I would recomend Patricio Guzman's documentary "The Battle of Chile", it is in spanish with english subtitles. Just to watch the images is an uncomparable window into the period. A good movie is also "Missing", from 1982 directed by Costas- Gravas and starring Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek.

My name is Roger Bautista, I am a Human Rights activist. I belong to Social Convergence, which is a member of Frente Amplio, a center left political coalision. I am a part of both Comissions on Human Rights and Memory. My main goal is to educate and share what happened, from the perspective of somebody who was involved in the fight and whose life has been permanently influenced by that period of chilean history. The ultimate goal is for these crimes to never ocurr again, either here or anywhere in the world. I guess I am a fervant opponent to torture. As we evolved as a society it is imperative that we settle the bare minimum for the political action needed in order to move forward. My sole purpose in life is to leave a better world for my daugher and the children of this planet. Hatred is a disease that dies at the sight of truth

Her skal du være

1. Club de La Unión: We meet at a twenty century french style palacette that hosts the private club, and is probably one of the most beautifull buildings in he country, symbolizes civic power in Chile; and its proximity to the administrative headquarters of the secret police epitomizes its symbiotic relation
