While not all that is said is true, not all that is truth is told.
I found appalling to see the UC Berkeley Campus extending an invitation to Felipe Kast from Chile. Mr. Kast is a former member of Pinochet’s political party UDI and his family, are well known supporters and collaborators of the Pinochet dictatorship.
Felipe Kast is scheduled to speak at 3pm on April 1, 2016, as part of the 7th Latin American Business Conference; the University of California Berkeley Haas School of Business‘ Latin and Hispanic Business Association (LAHBA). Memorial Stadium, 210 Stadium Rim Way Berkeley, CA 94720.
I have included here a link (In Spanish) that connects Mr. Kast family to the massacre of 22 families in Paine, south of Chile. Obviously, Mr. Kast can’t be responsible for the actions of his family. But, as a congressman and a former supporter of Pinochet, he has refused repeatedly to speak about this horrendous crime.
After 40 years, the families of Paine are still looking for justice and their disappeared family members. It’s time he confronts this issue, especially in Berkeley where a great majority of the Chilean Community came escaping from the bloody Pinochet regime.
