Mass Memory Action
1200 bodies lying in the Alameda to represent the more than 1200 detainees disappeared in Chile
September 10th, 2013

In the context of the 40th-anniversary commemoration of the State Coup in Chile,  I watched on a national broadcast interview how a high-rank general from the dictatorship said he had ignored at the time the systematic violations of human rights in Chile exercised by the state apparatus during the Military Dictatorship, I couldn't believe the hypocrisy of who was actually later condemned by the Chilean Justice of participating in massive assassinations. I thought if I knew as a little girl what happened, then those that say they didn't know chose not to know. They didn't want to see. I  called the mass action called #quererNOver (#notwanttosee), We performed the massive public intervention on September 10th, 2013 at 8:49 a.m. during 11 minutes. 1210 volunteers responded to my call and lay down on the streets drawing a 2-kilometer line in Santiago, in commemoration of the 1210 detenidos desaparecidos.
