Elegy for Salvador Allende

The winds stopped blowing.
The birds stopped singing.
Suddenly the time stood still;
It was like everything held their breath.
 
Salvador Allende,
the hour before dawn comes.
But one day the sky will dissolve
and the bells of freedom will ring,
and Chile will heal its wounds.
 
The sky darkens and thunder is heard.
The lightening cuts through the space.
The rain whips against the earth.
People huddle in the storm.
 
Salvador Allende,
the hour before dawn comes.
But one day the sky will dissolve
and the bells of freedom will ring,
and Chile will heal its wounds.
 
So the ice cold night comes
with hunger and the beating hearts;
With tongues that whisper in the darkness
and the fear that binds us together.
 
Salvador Allende,
the hour before dawn comes.
But one day the sky will dissolve
and the bells of freedom will ring
and Chile will heal its wounds.
 
Cannons, rifles and soldiers
can only take our bodies,
but the dream of freedom within us
can not be stopped by any intimidation.
 
Salvador Allende,
the hour before dawn comes.
But one day the sky will dissolve
and the bells of freedom will ring,
and Chile will heal its wounds.

Vald till president i Chile 1970 efter allmänna demokratiska val. Vid en militärkupp den 11 september 1973 angreps presidentpalatset och Allende uppmanades att avgå. han vägrade och mötte i stället militären beväpnad för att in i det sista försvara demokratin. Kort efter bilden togs stormades presidentpalatset. Salvador Allende var död."

"Salvador Allende 1909-1973
Voted to President in Chile in 1970 after a completely democratic election. In a military coup on the 11th of September, the presidential palace was taken and Allende was forced to leave. He refused and met instead the armed military to save democracy. Shortly after the photo was taken, the presidential palace was stormed. Salvador Allende was dead."
