This is one of the paintings one will find in the book, America, my brother my blood. The painting by Guayasamin is called, Lagrimas de Sangre (Tears of Blood). I actually have this painting framed.
In the painting on the bottom right in Spanish it says:
Nosotros Los Pueblos
This painting is one that causes me deep sorrow. Such a powerful painting.
As I look at the picture and reflect on Neruda’s life, the last of the 3 great Chilean that passed away on September 1973, I can’t help but fight these painful tears.
The United States really needs to hand down Henry Kissinger to Chile to face prosecution charges for the death of Allende and his involvement in the coup that brought PinoShit in power. I am convince that it was PinoShit’s military regime that also killed Neruda because a living Neruda would have posed bigger problems for Chile and the U.S. I think its time America stop harboring terrorists and hand down Kissinger to Chile. The Kissinger trial is long overdue.
