A Chilean compatriots, Nerudian friends in the world, I am writing this, my patriotic protest
I argue that the theft / plagiarism / embezzlement of Popular Anthology / 1972 of the poet Pablo Neruda, Latin American culture has suffered the greatest humiliation and has attacked the cultural heritage of the people and the Chilean nation.
The biggest attack on Chilean culture has been perpetrated without any authority of Chile has acted or acted in defense of the work of a fellow, national and Latin American glory.
Manuel Araya Osorio was not any driver. Came to life marked as a poor child and above field, its prospects were very small, because it was like being born in the Middle Ages, learning to read was a chore, not for not having the intellectual capacity but because Chilean feudal lords saw only a cheap and ignorant work and raise a peasant was simply forbidden.
The opinion of the man who stood by Neruda always: Manuel Araya
, Raul Valdivia-Pizarro (Pancho Calama)
Manuel Araya, tells me he can now die in peace. "To be heard and to gather so many wills around the just cause that means the defense of Neruda, I indicated that" planted for fruit, the fruit of truth, now I take care a little more because my health is something resentful, which has more strengthened me in tremendous conscious solidarity that I received on my trip to Cuba, Neruda always convert that revolution was real and I could see not because they have received me so many authorities of culture, but because I could watch a courageous people but above all worship.
This week the Casa de las Américas received the NGO "Anthology Popular1972-Chile Heritage". In front of her, Manuel Araya, driver and personal assistant Neruda, who holds more than four decades that the Chilean poet was killed
"He was not to die and I will repeat until you die," says Manuel Araya, now a man of over seventy years he keeps in his left knee the imprint of a bullet that was put on September 23, 1973 in National Stadium.
