In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls-Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out vital inspections of engines for Hawker Hunter planes - the fighter jets were being used by the military junta against the people. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity against General Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship. Forty years later, Nae Pasaran reunites inspirational figures Bob Fulton, Robert Sommerville, John Keenan and Stuart Barrie to hear their story.
