Chile, March 4, 1973: Reactionary forces backed by the American CIA attempt to gain a two-thirds majority in the National Congress and impeach President Allende. These efforts to pull off a so-called White Coup fail. The Chilean reactionaries resort to an armed coup, and on September 11, 1973 they successfully launch a military-fascist government.
