Salvador Allende Remembered on Hundredth Birth Anniversary
HAVANA, Cuba, Jun 26 (acn) Thursday marks the 100th anniversary of the
birth of former Chilean President Salvador Allende (1908-1973), a dear
friend of Cuba who will be remembered for his determined battle against
Allende, founder of the Socialist Party of Chile, dedicated his fruitful
life to the struggle for the wellbeing of his people, first as a medical
doctor and later as a senator and finally as president of the Popular
Unity Government, reads the article on Granma daily.
His exemplary attitude took him to the nation’s highest office, where he
died on September 11, 1973, during the coup perpetrated by traitors
backed by Washington.
His stature and the revolutionary process begun by Popular Unity in
Chile awoke profound sympathies and interest around the world, which
became the seeds that today have germinated in a freer and more
independent Latin America.
Salvador Allende lives on in the dreams and hopes of the people; and he
continues to untiringly call for unity.

Allende Returns to LatAm, Alarcon
Santiago, Chile.- Latin America lives a new period in which Salvador
Allende is back, Cuban Peoples' Power National Assembly President
Ricardo Alarcon said Thursday. In his article "Salvador on my
memory," published in the "Punto Final" magazine's special edition on
occasion of Allende's 100th birth anniversary, the Cuban legislator
stated "we would not have reached this point without the sacrifice
and altruism of men like him." Alarcon stressed "Latin America is
making a comeback, shrugging off exploitation and the vassalage it
has suffered for centuries." "Nobody could overcome him in
parliamentary debates, or beat him with ideas and arguments, or
ignore his convictions and total devotion to his people, the poor,
and humble," he noted.
