A statue, cast from melted cannon, on the summit of the Andes bears these words: “These Mountains themselves shall fall and crumble to dust before the people of Chile and the Argentine Republic forget their solemn covenant sworn at the feet of Christ.”

The League of Nations Union was formed in 2018 to promote international justice based upon the ideals of the League of Nations. Membership peaked in 1931 at over 400,000. In 1948 it was superseded by the United Nations Association.

The statue of ‘Christ the Redeemer of the Andes’ is a monument unveiled in 1904 to celebrate the peaceful resolution of the border dispute between Argentina and Chile.
