Orlando Letelier says : “One of the guarantees of democracy is that there will always be different ends of the continuum. So Chile is very much like the United States in that respect. Sometimes people say to me, 'But certainly you got rid of Pinochet, I can’t believe people still support him!' But have you looked up your local Klan chapter lately? Have you looked at elections in Germany lately?” "The way things are in Chile is just like they might be in Los Angeles or New York City. It’s a hard nut to crack”. D.C. art lovers may be used to stumbling upon murals on the street, and it’s for this very reason that Letelier is happy that “Todas las Manos” is on display at American University. “Maybe we could have gotten a permanent site somewhere in an alley. But that’s not a noble site. This was a great place to create this mural and installation. We were able to reinforce the importance of the project”. The murals will tour other sites around the area, including Wilson High School, which has a tragic connection to one of the panels. A part of the mural, “Native Son: Rodrigo Rojas”, is dedicated to a young man who, like his friend Francisco Letelier, came from an exiled family. “I was just a few years older than him, but we were always together,” Letelier says. In 1986, the 19-year-old Rojas returned to Chile, where he and his friend Carmen Gloria Quintana took photos at a demonstration. Soldiers captured the young photographers, doused them with gasoline and set them on fire. As remote as the Chilean conflict may seem, this incident demonstrates that all politics in indeed local. “He went to Wilson High School, he participated in the Latin American Youth Center. He walked these streets. He’s not just a Chilean kidhe’s a kid from here" External link
