TEHRAN (AIPFF) – “Today, the main problem before the revolutionary groups in the world is the lack of powerful media and effective connections and communications”, said Miguel Littín in meeting with the manager of Research and planning center of The House of Latin America.
Pointing to some of the activities of the center over the issues of Latin America, Shahrabi discussed the change in the methods of coups in that region. “Unlike the past, when the military coups overthrew the governments in the region, today different methods of changing regimes are used,” he stated.
Nowadays soft coups are the newest methods of imperialism used to topple the governments in Latin American countries including Argentina and Honduras, like the one who loses the elections by a small margin finally have gets to the power, said Littín confirming Shahrabi.
The main problem before the revolutionary groups is the lack of powerful media and effective connections and communications, he added.
Having visited the northern parts of Tehran, where the rich and wealthy people reside and having seen all the facilities there, Littín compared Iran with some Latin American countries. Unlike Iran, it is forbidden to have big houses or commercial centers in countries like Cuba, and that ceates issues as the rich get unsatisfied and make some problems, he argued.
In major events and cases, ordinary people who make the majority of the people support the government, Littín added. He pointed to the events following the victory against those who attempted the coup in Chile and to the lasting revolutionary spirit of the Chilean people afterwards. In the first screening of the film Allende…in Chile in a place with the capacity of 5000 people, instead of buying a ticket people were requested to bring with themselves a flower and they sang together the epic song El pueblo unido jamás será vencido
Upon hearing this, Heshmatollah Rahnama, who had lived in Argentina and Latin America for 20 years and was accompanying Littín, had the song played which deeply impressed the filmmaker, making him sing with the song with his hands fisted. Later Rahnama had the song Bar Pa Khiz or Stand Up played, which was an Iranian song adapted from the Chilean song and very famous during the early years of the revolution in Iran. Littín was surprised to hear about the song, calling it an incredible adaptation of the Chilean epic song.
