On This Day In 1986...

A massive nationwide strike started in Chile to protest the Pinochet regime. General Pinochet reacted to the strike like only a tin-pot dictator butthurt that everyone doesn't love him can: by having protesters peppered with bullets and tear gas. Also possibly having some people set on fire.

By the way, Pinochet conveniently died of a heart attack in 2006 before he could be properly convicted of any human rights abuses. Feh.

And since this was a bit of a downer post, please enjoy this nice picture of a sunset in Florida:
