Socialist Workers Party (US)

denounces Pinochet arrest

By David Walsh

5 November 1998

The lead editorial in the November 2 edition of the

Militant, the weekly newspaper of the Socialist

Workers Party of the US, begins: "The October 17

arrest of Augusto Pinochet by British police, acting on

a warrant issued by two judges in Spain, has nothing to

do with defending human rights and is an attack on the

sovereignty of Chile. It should be condemned by

working people, especially in the United Kingdom and

the United States." . . .
