Pamphlet from the "pro-situ[ationist" Bay Area group Point-Blank!, written a month after the Chilean coup d'état of September 1973. From a radical left-wring perspective (which remains highly critical of Stalinists, Leninists, Maoists and Trotskyites), the pamphlet denounces the overthrown socialist president Salvador Allende as "[no] more than an administrator of state intervention in a capitalist economy," and surprisingly denies any U.S. involvement in the coup, mocking those who would try to pin it on the "all-too-convenient bogeyman of the CIA." Illustrated throughout with B&W photographs. OCLC locates one copy.
