The governments of the UK has authorised the Chilean vessel ‘Esmeralda’ to visit its ports from 26th-30th of August 2015. In September 1973, the vessel ‘Esmeralda’ was used for the large-scale systematic torture of Chilean citizens by the military authorities which seized power in Chile following the 11 September 1973 coup d’état.

It was also in this vessel that the British citizen Michael Woodward died following his savage torture by members of the Chilean Navy
Under the European Convention on Human Rights, the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, the International Convention against Torture and Degrading Treatment and Articles 1, 12 and 16 (concerning human rights) of the Association Agreement concluded between Chile and the European Union, no European government should authorise the above-mentioned Chilean training ship to visit its ports.

Join us to demand justice for its victims and show the world we haven’t forgotten the atrocities committed aboard the Esmeralda.
