Who was Salvador Allende?

Salvador Allende was born on 26 June 1908 in Chile. His life as a doctor, Senator, Minister, and President turned Allende into a universal symbol of democratic and libertarian conscience for Chileans and the oppressed people of the world.

The Salvador Allende Centenary Committee-Sydney was formed on 26 January 2008. This is a broad collective of individuals and community organisations which will be commemorating the Centenary of Dr. Salvador Allende’s birth, former Chilean President who died in 1973 in a US-backed coup d’ etat.
