Jeff Myers
Casilla 1^-017
Correo 21

Santiago, Chile

sent to all United States Congressmen in a desire to tell it like it is<.

Share it with your friends, neighbors# associates, and fellow citizenst


To Whom It hay Concern:

As a long time resident of Chile, I would like to share some insights


into the events that have been transpiring in Chile during the last
few months. I feel this need because of the move by Mr. Edward

Kennedy and other U, S. Senators to have economic aid cut off to Chile
"until the civil rights of Chileans have.been restored." I believe .
this move is' due to a false understanding of what the supposed Chilean

"

democracy has been like during the last three years, and also to whatI consider to be very distorted reporting on the part of the Ainerican
press.

I ask yoiJi to take into consideration some of the things that took place during the three years of the Allende government, 1. Mr. Allende was elected by a minority, about one third of the

popul.ar votc-

Ho novor ruled -as Prosidont of Chilo, but rather

as Prosidcnt of his political party.

2t

Unlike traditional political p&rties in a demodracy, iMr. Allende sought to gain total power over the Chilean Republic in the
following ways: a , " Bank credits from nationalized banks determined which busi nesses and industries would survive or die according to their
utility to tho /CLlcndc rogimo.

b.
c.

The land reform program, instead of giving the peasant land,


made him an en^^loyee of the State,

In the government-controlled industries party membership was a pre-requisite to employment, and the learning of Marxist doctrino was iiqDortant in keeping one's job. Thousands of 'professional'people and technicians,, who could not fit into t^ie system, joined the ranks of the linemployed and thousands
more were forced to leave their homeland to make a life some

where else. Meanwhile, the government continued to create artificial conflicts in private industries, sending in govern ment mediators which eventually recommended their becoming part of the national domain, steadily decreasing a citizen's

right to bo employed where ho was not fitted in to a Marxist


mold.

, ,

3.

Mr. Allende ruled a democracy of which the Executive Branch

formed only one part. However, he ignored the Congress and attacked the Justice Department as a tool of the bourgeois
system.

The so-called educational reform system that the goyornmont sought to impose on all levels of the educational system was designed to indoctrinate the student only according to Marxist philo sophy.

5*

No Cliilean excaped suffering the government control of consumer

goods,

^nce things such as television sets and refrigerators

were no longer sold on the open market, they had to be gotten through factory organizations who charged not only in currency,
but in ideological faithfulness. Those who did not havo accoss to those items through govornmont sources wore forced to buy them through the govemment-croated black market, which sold for as much as more which meant that the majority of the people wore unable to buy.

pio govermont solution to tho 6, 2^, and 48 hour lines for basic food products such as broad, milk, moat, and sugar was rationing. Tho rationing cards wore given out, a card for each itom, by Marxist-controllod organizations. To got thoso cards tho person
had to submit himself to the scrutiny of tho organizational representative, who surveyed the number of members in tho family, the numbor of roomo in tho house, and tho political boliofs of
its members t

6. The chaos in tho Chilean oconomy was not duo to the boycott on tho
" doctrine that you. must completely destroy tho nation's bourgeois
to take over the govornmont totally for tho Marxist, Allonde's
pnrt of the Chilean businessmen or even to th i incredible inofficionc'y of iho /Culcj.dj G-'Vornnon't. It vas auo to tho co:mianist cconomj^ to put it back together again according to Marxist norms,
