1) Profile of your leader

Augusto Pinochet joined the Chilean army in 1935. He rose through the ranks and was appointed Commander in Chief by President Salvador Allende in 1973. A month later, Pinochet led the military coup that overthrew Allende. After 25 years in power, he was put under arrest, but died in 2006, before he could be tried for alleged human rights violations. Estimated 35,000 dead or kidnapped in total.

3) Creative Piece

A poem of death,

Unknown and torture

Murders abundant

Chilean dark legacy

None dare question his say

His own people he slain

His life ending near

Families want gratification

Him and others

are put under arrest

Still denying his action

But a much needed death
