9/11/1973 -- Allende, Chile

9/11/1973
On September 11th, 1973, US-backed military forces murdered 60,000 Chileans in a coup-detat which lead to nearly 20 years of brutal rule in Chile by Augusto Pinochet -- known to US citizens as, "the savior of Democracy."

While then-President Allende's building was bombed by fighter jets, shot at by tanks and soldiers on the ground, and eventually set ablaze, it did not collapse.
