Abstract:  Venceremos is a magazine following current political development in Chile and Latin America in order to provide information on and generate support for liberation efforts in those counties. It is oriented toward those in Canada in solidarity with those liberation efforts The June-August edition of the magazine begins with an editorial analyzing the ouster of general Leigh, commander and chief of the Chilean Air Force. The author's view is that Leigh wanted a broadening of the political base, primarily to decrease the chance that anti-junta forces would find allies. Thus, he called for increased "democracy" but no essential change in junta control of the country. However, pinochet saw this as a challenge to this power and removed Leigh from his command. This show of power, according to the author, ensures that the U.S. will have to continue to deal with pinochet even though many in the U.S. do not like Pinochet's image. Also included in this edition of the magazine is an analysis of recent elections throughout Latin America, including Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador. The magazine reports of various events throughout Canada, the U.S., Latin America and the world relating to liberation struggles and their support.
