Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
9/11 was a very bad day in 1973. It was a bad day in 2001 too.

And, being 28 years apart, both were Tuesdays.

September 11ths around the world -- on Sept 11 1973, US-backed Pinochet forces rose to power in Chile to overthrow the democratically-elected Salvador Allende and Allende died in the presidential palace. On Sept 11 1990, American anthropologist Myrna Mack was murdered by US-backed Guatamalan security forces. On September 11, 1977 in South Africa Steve Biko, founder of the black consciousness movement, was being beaten in the back of a van by apartheid forces. He died in the early morning hours of Sept. 12, 1977. On 9/11 1993, in the midst of the US-backed coup in Haiti, Antoine Azenery was dragged out of a church by coup forces and murdered in broad-daylight. He had been commemorating a massacre of parishioners at the Saint John Boscoe church that had occurred five years earlier on September 11, 1988. Father Jean Bertrand Aristide had narrowly escaped death in that attack. He later became president of Haiti twice before being kidnapped by the US in support of another coup.
