Motto: | Illusion is the hardiest weed of the collective consciousness: history teaches, but has no pupils. | (A. Gramsci)
Group: The MIR
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.

If men haven’t learned their history lessons in free thinking classrooms, the time has come to teach them with weapons. As tanks and rifles have drowned dreams of freedom into pools of blood, the time has come to join the MIR. Where books have failed and lie discarded as lifeless corpses, weapons take life. Maybe one day there will be singing and poetry again, meetings and guitars playing, but since then, there will be bullets, and a civil war that Professor Ruiz is willing to fight.


In the past he wrote articles for Manuel Cabises Donoso, who always listened carefully to his piece. He loves the poetry made by Carmen Yanez, he even met her at a book presentation where she signed his copy.  Lieutenant Alba Pinera was once a promising student; it was a shame that she chose the military career.

Alignment: The dissidents - Group: The MIR - Nationality: Chile - Gender: Male - Player's Age: any age - DISCLAIMER: Disclaimer: The characters and the stories presented in DESAPARECIDOS are inspired by people and real facts, but their description and characterization is totally the result of imagination. In the writing of the event numerous liberties have been taken, especially as regards the characterization of the characters, the images used and the succession of the various events, which never claim to reflect the reality of the facts or behavior of historical characters. The interpretation of the players and the evolution of the narrative will lead to moments and events quite distant from historical reality. It is not intention of the authors to express any specific position or to make judgments on specific facts that actually occurred -except to condemn the use of any form of violence by anyone- nor to diminish in any way the historical and personal tragedy of the Chilean people and thousands of families involved in the drama of the desaparecidos.
