Salvador Allende's last words



This is the audio that I am posting by suggestion of Eponymous. The sole thought that these were the last words of a man who would die soon after this audio message reminds me that there are still people willing to sacrifice to set an example. He is not someone begging for his life, he is a corageous man with a calm tone of voice in the middle of a fascist coup. The best thing I can do is to contribute to his wish to be heard in the future by people who have truly decided to fight against the ones who believe in an unequal society.

As per a previous suggestion made by Whynot, the best thing to do is to right click with the mouse and download the audio so that you can play it afterwards.

Thanks, Marco

I'd better take a crash course in Spanish :-)

I'm at work currently, and so I can't play the audio. Is there a transcript anywhere (preferrably with translation, as calling my Spanish "shaky" would be a compliment)?

Marco, I have found an english translation of Allende's last speech at here . Have a look and see if this is a correct translation. If not you have the power to edit it.

It is accurate, Dianne. Either you know Spanish or not, I encourage everyone to download his real voice... you can always follow it with the translation that has been provided.

Great stuff. Eponymous has been away for a few days, but I bet he'll enjoy this when he comes back.

Thanks, Marco. I just noticed that you had posted this. I greatly appreciate it. I'll file it away under the "People I admire" file.
