25 Years of the Raíces de América

Sweat, blood and poverty had been for a long time the main aspects that stained this, so unarticulated, and opressed Latin America . Now it's time to reajust it into an untouchable single block, able to turn it into an independent and happy continent again.
(Oscar Niemeyer)
