Toggle Group description

Members of MIR - Movimiento de Izquierda Revolucionaria. “No elections; armed fight is the only way!” (MIR’s motto). MIR is an extreme left movement driven by class conflict and against capitalism. It’s the armed resistance to the regime. Its components are city guerrilla, ready to sacrifice themselves for the cause: overthrow Pinochet. They are revolutionaries, man and women who fight for the rights of the lower classes, faithful to the idea of armed conflict as the key to establish a just society through insurrection. Democracy is only one of the many faces of the dictatorship of the rich that bind Chile to american capitalism. Armed conflict is the only way to free the country. Members of the MIR will face a tough game of resistance and strong conflict with the members of the regime and their collaborators, and also with whomever does not embrace armed conflict. THEMES: armed class conflict, revolution, betrayal, ideals.


Sometimes life asks for a fight, until the last breath. Marcia began her struggle at Punto Final, the newspaper she worked for, where her bravery only met fear, indifference and convenience. Her ideals broke against a stronger wall that only bombs will destroy where her pen failed. Sometimes life asks to marry a rifle, cradle a knife between the breasts, plan an attack with other MIR comrades. What life also ask is to drown sorrow when these brothers and sister in arms die. Life asks to never surrender, even when the pain for such losses is not the only wight one carries.

She left Punto Final because Manuel Cabieses Donoso never liked her provocative articles and dind’t want to publish anything against the Government. Lately, she often turns to Doctor Alejandro Romero as the fight is taking its toll on her and she needs medical attentions. Felix Buendia was once an intimate friend, but now she fiercely despises him. Carmen Yanez is a good friend and her poetry an inspiration.
