1968 in Brazil was also like that!

Main Article Content


The essay analyzes the presence of students, workers, and guerrilla movements and armed resistance to the civil-military dictatorship in some political episodes recorded since 1968 in Brazil. This study begins with a reflection on the close relationship maintained social characters in the fight against reigning state terror and the important political and organizational heritage they provided to the social movements in the second half of the 1970s, which significantly affected the social and political scene of the country. These moments of resistance and the recognition of their pedagogical character as an indissoluble part of the history of social movements allows us to understand their unexpected nature and direction, contrary to the building of order and mechanisms of domination that characterize capitalist society. Such resistance turns the world upside down and sows seeds for a utopian society without exploited or exploiters in the fertile soil of history.
