Dan Berger speaking on Stand UP Fight Back podcast about The Struggle Within

"We talk with Dan Berger, author of two new books. The primary focus of this show is The Struggle Within: Prisons, Political Prisoners, and Mass Movements in the United States, from PM Press. It is a look back at political prisoners and state repression from the last fifty years.

In his other book is Captive Nation: Black Prison Organizing in the Civil Rights Era, from UNC Press, he looks at the organizing by imprisoned black activists within and around prisons and the ways in which that struggle influenced and impacted generations of activists later."

Gabriel San Román Interview on Ghoulish Time speaking out Venceremos


When the socialist politician Salvador Allende dramatically won Chile’s presidential election in 1970, a powerful cultural movement accompanied him to power. Folk singers emerged at the forefront, proving that music could help forge the birth of a new society. As the CIA actively funded opposition media against Allende during his campaign, the New Chilean Song Movement rose to prominence, viscerally persuading voters with its music. Víctor Jara, a central protagonist at the time, became an icon in Chile, Latin America, and beyond for his revolutionary lyrics and life. Inti-Illimani, Quilapayún, and other musicians contributed by singing before audiences of workers outside factories or campesinos in Chile’s rural countryside.

A short cultural history, “Venceremos“ charts the development of the movement from the years before Allende’s victorious campaign to the brutal U.S.-backed military coup on September 11, 1973, that overthrew his presidency and imposed the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. Featuring interviews from key figures and lyrical analysis, “Venceremos“ gives insight into how the New Chilean Song Movement’s revolutionary anthems came to be.
