Poster has a drawing of a tal ship in black and white. On the left is large rainbow lettering. It reads, "Stop the June 21 Esmeralda." The upper right has black text with large arrows pointing to it. It reads, "Stop! The Chilean Junta's Ship! The Esmeralda arrives on Fri. June 21, 8 AM Oakland Naval Yard For Information (415) 548-2221 (415) 397-9964 (409) 286-2187."According to testimony collected by Amnesty International and the Organization of American States, at least 110 political prisoners - 70 men and 40 women - were interrogated aboard the ship for more than two weeks without charges or trial under the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. This was the first of many efforts to challenge the ship's "goodwill visits" in foreign ports. [LMC]
