Uruguayan writer and journalist Eduardo Galeano, a reference for Latin American political literature, has passed away on April 13, 2015. The popular classes, social movements, small mobilized communities, those "ignored", those who "cost less than the bullet that kills them", today mourn him. But Galeano and his words will continue joining the struggles of our peoples, and in this way the poet will live forever in the shared path towards the utopia that “is in the horizon".
