Det skal I lave

First, we will get together at the exit of Metro Cumming. We will introduce ourselves to each other and share how much everyone knows about the topic. Not knowing anything about political repression is not an impediment; on the contrary, it is the sole purpose of this "experience". A parish that is three blocks away is our first stop. From here the political police abducted the Number 2 in the structure of MIR (Revolutionary Left Movement). The way this case was handled by the MIR, and its propaganda apparatus in exile will be discussed while we walk the short eight blocks to the memorial of the last leader of MIR assassinated during the dictatorship. At this site I will retell the transformation within the MIR, especially about the use of violence, its divisions and collapse. While I prompt the comparison with other political and military groups such as the IRA or ETA we will be walking three short blocks to the historic "Photographers´Square" in the Concha y Toro patrimonial blocks. Here, while sharing how the square got its name I Will offer you to take a short stroll to the Cultural Center where i live so we can have a refreshment and converse about the topic and share some of the reflections you might have.
Other things to note
That prior knowledge of Chilean history is not needed. That the sole purpose of this "experience" is to put political violence into perspective. Sharing of personal experiences is encouraged.

I am a Human Rights activist before the fact that I am part of the National Commission for Human Rights in the Frente Amplio, an emerging center-left political coalition. I got into politics back in 1984, in the mist of the political strikes against the dictator Pinochet. We lost many friends in that struggle. I swore to never let their memories died. For six years now we have carried out a walking commemoration through the sites of our neighborhood (Brasil/Yungay) where political violence of that period took lives and payed homage to their sacrifice. This is where I got the idea.

Very informative. Roger lived through the dictatorship and shared his experience while explaining the repression. His English is perfect and he answered all my questions. I highly recommend this tour for people who want to learn and even those who already know alot about Chile.

Roger's passion is the result of living and breathing Chile's struggle. The tour is perfect for those interested in the sociopolitical movements that affected the country then and now.

Roger has a comprehensive understanding of Chilean history and will definitely teach you a few things you’d be hard pressed to find in a history book.
