Chileans honor Pinochet-era victims, demand prison closure

Chileans took to the streets to honor the victims of Augusto Pinochet’s 1973-1990 regime and to demand the closure of a special “luxury” prison for ex-dictatorship officials. People are still grappling with the legacy of the dictatorship as they work to unravel laws set during the period and bring ex-military officials and rights abusers to justice. “The wound remains open because the truth has not been told, and justice has not been served,” said Tania Nunez, 52, who marched with a poster picturing some of the more than 3,200 people — mostly leftist activists — slain during the dictatorship.
