These 40 years mean more justice and punishment." SOUNDBITE 2 Claudina Nuñez (woman), Mayor of Pedro Aguirre Cerda community (Spanish, 17 sec): "As long as the absolute truth is not known, that justice does not exist, and that those who designed and carried out these atrocities are not judged, this country will not reach reconciliation. That's why we ask for truth and justice." SOUNDBITE 3 Juan Carlos (man), protester (Spanish, 23 sec): "The right must ask for forgiveness for the damage that they did to our country. The fascism that damaged and divided our country, is the worse thing they did. They changed the constitution in such a way that now they cannot solve what is happening to our country." /// ----------------------------------------------------------- AFP TEXT STORY: 40 years after Pinochet coup, thousands march for rights in Chile / Santiago (Chile) - 09 September 2013 04:34 - AFP Thousands of Chileans marched for human rights Sunday on the 40th anniversary of the coup that brought dictator Augusto Pinochet to power. Some of the 60,000 carried pictures of their kin who were abducted or killed by the state and held signs with slogans such as "40 years after the coup, nobody and no one has been forgotten." After a two-hour march, one group of hooded demonstrators set up barricades and squared off with police, some of whom were hit with stones and sticks. Police subdued the protestors with tear gas and water cannons. The march ended at a cemetery with a memorial to the victims of Pinochet's Cold War regime. "Forty years on, we are still demanding truth and justice. We won't rest until we find out what happened to our loved ones who were arrested and went missing" never to return, said Lorena Pizarro, leader of a relatives' rights group. September 11 is the anniversary of the day in 1973 when air force planes bombed the presidential palace. Salvador Allende, an elected socialist president, committed suicide rather than be captured. The governments that have ruled in the transition since Pinochet left power in 1990 have managed to reduce the South American country's poverty rate from 40 percent to 14 percent. But social disparities are stark. Besides demands for social change, pressure is mounting in Chile to unmask the whole truth about a dictatorship that left more than 3,200 dead and some 38,000 people tortured. Pinochet died in 2006 without ever having gone on trial. END
