Between March and September of 1973, the left and right face off in the streets, in the factories, in the courts, in the universities, in parliament, and in the news media. The situation becomes unsustainable. The United States finances the truckers' strike and foments social chaos. The contradictions within the left-wing increase the crisis. A wide sector of the middle class supports the boycott and civil war. On September 11, Pinochet bombs the governmental palace.
