I cover national and international politics from a Latino perspective.

A fanatic of history and political analysis, I now dedicate myself to giving news platforms the historical background they so desperately need. Art historian, visual anthropologist and philosopher living in France, I found in AL DÍA News the space to put political reality in context from a new perspective. When I am not writing, I dedicate my time to discovering the Latin American musical avant-garde, far from the reggeton and stereotyped tendencies. Proudly Venezuelan, in diaspora.

The other 9/11

The Moneda Palace, after the first bombing, on September 11, 1973.

A date that has gone down in history for its violence, the symbolism of hatred it brought with it and the dark years that followed. When we talk about September 11, our immediate memory refers to the World Trade Center, but in a thin country of Latin America, this date recalls the year 1973, when democracy disappeared in the smoke of a bombing.

Una fecha que ha pasado a la historia por su violencia, por la simbología de odio que trajo consigo y por los oscuros años que le siguieron. Cuando hablamos del 11 de septiembre, nuestra memoria inmediata nos refiere al World Trade Center, pero en un delgado país de Latinoamérica, esta fecha recuerda el año de 1973, cuando la democracia desapareció en la humareda de un bombardeo.
