Liber[té] on Radio AlHara: Chile Constitution with guest Pablo Navarrete (Alborada Films)

First broadcast on Radio AlHara, Sunday 4 September 2022.

Later today the Chilean people decide on whether or not to accept a new constitution to replace the one created during Pinochet’s bloody leadership.

My mum was treated brutally in Santiago during this time, enduring mental and physical torture along with thousands of others, and thousands more were killed. Mum later found refuge in England, where I was born.

Pablo Navarrete, my guest for this episode, heads up Latin American journalistic platform and runs Alborada Films. Their most recent film Santiago Rising, directed by Nick McWilliam, documents the protests in the capital which led to this new draft constitution.

We chat about the constitution and our hopes, plus Pablo chooses hip hop, cumbia and more – find the track list below.
