The day in which he reached 100 years of life, Carlos Marighella received amnesty “post mortem” and formal apology by the Brazilian state of political persecution he suffered throughout his life, beyond the government’s relentless effort to destroy the image dictatorial this communist fighter.
Presented on December 5 in Salvador, the Amnesty Commission, the apology to the session Marighella wrote 53 of the Caravan of Amnesty, the Ministry of Justice project whose goal is to repair the crimes committed by the last military regime, between the years 1964 and 1985.
At the ceremony, praised the former leader of the National Liberation Action (ALN) as a hero of the Brazilian people, portraying himself thus disqualifying the military dictatorship that was Marighella. The dictatorial government came to consider him a criminal, a terrorist, an enemy of the fatherland. The apology also highlighted the responsibility of the organs of repression by his assassination in an ambush in 1969.
The amnesty was received by the son of Marighella, Marighella Carlos Augusto, and his widow, Clara Charf. The two were moved a lot during the homage to Carlos Marighella. The act showed the great recognition he has this great revolutionary struggle, defending not only the overcoming of the dictatorship, but also the emancipation of the working class.
