Salvador Allende

Dátum narodenia: 26. jún 1908
Dátum úmrtia: 11. september 1973

Salvador Allende bol čilský lekár a ľavicový politik, prezident Čile od roku 1970.

Počas jeho úradovania vo funkcii prezidenta, ktorá mala trvať do roku 1976, bol v roku 1973 zvrhnutý pri vojenskom puči, ktorý viedla vojenská chunta na čele s generálom Augustom Pinochetom. Allende spáchal samovraždu v bezvýchodiskovej situácii počas obliehania prezidentského paláca La Moneda, pričom údajne použil pušku AK-47, ktorú mu daroval Fidel Castro.Do prezidentského kresla sa dostal ako kandidát za stranu Unidad Popular, s ktorou sa spája aj meno nositeľa Nobelovej ceny za literatúru Pabla Nerudu. V roku 1970 získal Allende 36,29 % hlasov, za zvolenie vďačil paradoxne roztrieštenosti pravicovej opozície, ale aj podpore kresťanských demokratov v Kongrese. V roku 1971 vyhrala Unidad Popular regionálne voľby so ziskom 49,75 % hlasov. Po zvolení viedol Allende ľavicovú politiku, jej súčasťou bolo pozdvihnutie životnej úrovne obyvateľstva, znárodnenie bánk a podnikov zaoberajúcich sa ťažbou nerastov.

Citáty Salvador Allende

„Workers of my country, I have faith in Chile and its destiny.“

—  Salvador Allende

Final address (1973)
Kontext: The people must defend themselves, but they must not sacrifice themselves. The people must not let themselves be destroyed or riddled with bullets, but they cannot be humiliated either.
Workers of my country, I have faith in Chile and its destiny. Other men will overcome this dark and bitter moment when treason seeks to prevail. Keep in mind that, much sooner than later, great avenues will again be opened, through which will pass the free man, to construct a better society.
Long live Chile! Long live the people! Long live the workers!
These are my last words, and I am certain that my sacrifice will not be in vain, I am certain that, at the very least, it will be a moral lesson that will punish felony, cowardice, and treason.

„I will always be next to you. At least my memory will be that of a man of dignity who was loyal to his country.“

—  Salvador Allende

Final address (1973)
Kontext: I address the youth, those who sang and gave us their joy and their spirit of struggle. I address the man of Chile, the worker, the farmer, the intellectual, those who will be persecuted, because in our country fascism has been already present for many hours — in terrorist attacks, blowing up the bridges, cutting the railroad tracks, destroying the oil and gas pipelines, in the face of the silence of those who had the obligation to act.
They were committed. History will judge them.
Surely, Radio Magallanes will be silenced, and the calm metal instrument of my voice will no longer reach you. It does not matter. You will continue hearing it. I will always be next to you. At least my memory will be that of a man of dignity who was loyal to his country.

„Now the question is, "Who is going to use whom?"“

—  Salvador Allende

As quoted in Conversations With Allende (1970) by Regis Debray
Kontext: Now the question is, "Who is going to use whom?" Even accepting the form of the question, the answer is the proletariat. If it wasn't so I wouldn't be here. I am working for Socialism and through Socialism.

„For you to be a Communist or a Socialist is to be totalitarian; for me no.… On the contrary, I think Socialism frees man.“

—  Salvador Allende

Quoted in "Allende Sees Chile Finding Her Own Way to Socialism" by Joseph Novitski, in The New York Times (4 October 1970)
Kontext: We start from different ideological positions. For you to be a Communist or a Socialist is to be totalitarian; for me no.… On the contrary, I think Socialism frees man.

„Surely, this will be the last opportunity for me to address you.“

—  Salvador Allende

Final address (1973)
Kontext: Surely, this will be the last opportunity for me to address you. The Air Force has bombed the antennas of Radio Magallanes. My words do not have bitterness but disappointment. … the only thing left for me is to say to workers: I am not going to resign!

„They have force and will be able to dominate us, but social processes can be arrested by neither crime nor force. History is ours, and people make history.“

—  Salvador Allende

Final address (1973)
Kontext: Placed in a historic transition, I will pay for loyalty to the people with my life. And I say to them that I am certain that the seeds which we have planted in the good conscience of thousands and thousands of Chileans will not be shriveled forever. They have force and will be able to dominate us, but social processes can be arrested by neither crime nor force. History is ours, and people make history.

„Cuba came from a dictatorship, and I arrived at the presidency after being senator for 25 years.“

—  Salvador Allende

Interview with Saul Landau (1971)
Kontext: I have been to Cuba many times. I have spoken many times with Fidel Castro and got to know Commander Ernesto Guevara well enough. I know Cuba's leaders and their struggle. It has been difficult to overcome the blockade. But the reality in Cuba is very different from that in Chile. Cuba came from a dictatorship, and I arrived at the presidency after being senator for 25 years.
