"Se abrirán las grandes Alamedas" by Elizabeth Neira

"Se abrirán las grandes Alamedas" is a performance by chilean artist and poet Elizabeth Neira.
The words are Salvador Allende’s Last Words to the Nation, a speech delivered at 9:10 am on September 11, 1973 in the midst on an ultimately successful US-sponsored coup d’etat against the democratically-elected government. Barricaded inside La Moneda, the presidential palace, President Allende gave his life defending Chilean democracy.
