Four years after the coup, a guerrilla movement was established under the leadership of Carlos Marighella of the A.L.N (Acao Libertadora Nacional).
His guard, Carlos Esquerdo, is no brutal slug, but a philosopher more talented to write poetry, recite quotes by Fanon or Camus, or play chess.
While Carlos focuses on the plight of the 90 million Brazilian workers and landless farmers, West's mind is occupied with the extinction of the native Indians.

It was around this idea that Carlos Marighella, then in his fifties, constructed his Minimanual of the Urban Guerilla in June 1969, 40 clandestinely published pages, impounded by every police force in the world but adopted by the original militants of ETA, the IRA and the German Baader-Meinhof.
Marighella's basic idea was that by committing acts of terrorism the urban guerrillas would force the government to introduce police and military crackdowns.
Marighella further confuses things by referring to the guerrillas' opponents as the gorillas, suggesting either that the Brazilian government in the late 60s was run by large, shy African primates with bourgeois reactionary tendencies or that Carlos had a thing about novelty telegrams or he didn't think Damon Albarn's cartoon pop group were much cop.

All these failures lie squarely at the feet of Carlos Marighella himself, who fell victim to his own romantic notions of “freedom fighting.” The crackdown by the Uruguayan government and its increasing repression was not only anticipated by Marighella, it was actually an intermediate objective of the his urban guerrilla concept.
Marighella wrote that the insurgents use their violence in order to identify with popular causes, which wins them a base of support among the people.
The second basic error in Marighella’s theory is that increasing government countermeasures inevitably become so repressive of the ordinary people that the masses are driven thereby into embracing the revolutionary cause.

 Prettying the Farc
The arrest of Luiz Fernando “Beira-Mar”da Costa in an encampment of Colombian guerrillas, with proof of exchange of drugs for guns, was maybe the most fearsome thing that has happened to the national Left since the death of Carlos Lamarca and Carlos Marighella (the two most famous left-wing Brazilian terrorists).
Beira-Mar is a living file of the dangerous liaisons between bandits and the revolution, and because of that some journalists — always so anxious to search in the attics and basements for things to destroy the career of right-wing politicians — are so circumspect and evasive regarding the drug dealer.
If he knew anything capable of incriminating Antonio Carlos Magalhães, Paulo Maluf, or any other top right wing politician, the reporters would be on top of him day and night.
