Periodical publication of the Chilean revolutionary left movement (MIR). MIR, a political party, was outlawed by the Christian Democratic Government in 1969 which determined drastic changes in the organization of MIR which entered a clandestine political existence with semi autonomous operative-structures called Grupos Político-Militares (GPM) and which survived even during the first years of the military resistance of MIR against the 1973 Chilean Coup d'Etat. . The years 1980-1981 the MIR had a guerrilla group in Neltume. According to the Rettig Report, MIR leader Jecar Neghme was assassinated in 1989 by Chilean state agents. Subsequently, with the September 11, 1973 Chilean coup and the overthrow and death of Allende Chile entered a period of severe military repression in which members of the former democratically elected socialist Allende government and its supporters were deemed enemies of the state. From the onset on September 11, 1973 the MIR became a major focus of death squads and its members began to be subjected to extrajudicial executions and forced disappearances. As a consequence, the MIR initiated a resistance against the military junta's violent repression which accompanied the clandestine publication of the document Qué es el MIR? (What is the MIR?) which proposed a series of resolutions to confront the repression, including political pressure, denunciations and propaganda followied by "Correo de la Resistencia..." and other publications
