Good job Minister Allende!

After 50 years since Pinochet’s coup, Maya Fernández Allende, Salvador’s nephew, was appointed Defense Minister of the Boric government, in an executive mostly composed of women.

Socialist, 50 years old, she was two in those days of 1973 when she was forced into exile in Cuba, where her mother Beatriz, daughter of the President, died of suicide.

Today, almost fifty years later, the name of Allende returns to the government of Chile, where at this time there could be the pro-fascist ultra-right of Kast.

A highly symbolic but not formal name that restores dignity and memory to an entire political season of change stopped in blood.
