On this episode of Going Underground, we firstly speak to the former spokesperson for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. He discusses the 2011 intervention by NATO which ‘silenced the Libyan majority,’ why he is in Cairo to coordinate political operations with Libyan counterparts, British and US attempts to play with the UN mandate to give ultimate control to the UN instead of the Libyan people, why the Libyan crisis should be viewed as ‘Libya v foreign powers’, the potential candidacy of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi and why he believes the former leader’s son can bring an end to domination by foreign powers and bring about Libyan dialogue, his criticism of General Khalifa Haftar having ‘authoritarian dreams’ and being beholden to foreign powers, and much more! Finally, we speak to Juan Garces, the only aide of President Salvador Allende to survive the Augusto Pinochet coup in 1973, on Chile’s Independence Day. He discusses the events of the day and how a snap decision by Allende led to him surviving the Pinochet coup, why the coup could not have happened without the election of Richard Nixon, how Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was complicit in the crimes of the Pinochet regime, Australia’s involvement in the 1973 coup, his predictions for the upcoming Chilean elections, and much more!
