Salvador Allende will have a speech book like never before in Brazil – 08/04/2022 – Walter Porto

Editora Ubu purchased the rights to publish a selection of unpublished speeches and interviews by former Chilean president Salvador Allende, who was overthrown by the 1973 military coup that would give rise to the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.

The volume will have texts translated for the first time into Portuguese and will be published in the second semester, as part of the Explosante collection, coordinated by philosophy professor Vladimir Safatle, from the University of São Paulo.

“This is part of the collection’s idea to make fundamental documents of the political history of the last 50 years available to Brazilians, allowing readers to have direct access to texts that have influenced history and mobilized people,” Safatle said.

The book, published in partnership with the Salvador Allende Foundation, will have a foreword by Chile’s Rodrigo Karmy and extensive photographic support material to contextualize the speeches.

Included in the election were, for example, Allende’s speech at the National Stadium in November 1970, a few months after being elected president; his first message to Congress in May 1971; and his address to the United Nations General Assembly in December 1972.

The launch comes after the election of left-wing youth Gabriel Boric, who was sworn in as president last month in a nod to Allende and chose the former president’s granddaughter, Maya Fernández Allende, as his defense minister.
