1. Whatever your opinion is of Peru’s Sendero Luminoso [Shining Path] revolutionary movement, don’t ever try to kid yourself into thinking that they didn’t have a real and tangible mass base among the people.

    This image comes from the funeral of young Senderista militant Edith Lagos, killed in an encounter with Peru’s Republican Guard in 1982. The event took place in Ayacucho, which at the time had around 70-80,000 residents. The funeral attracted around 30,000, despite an official ban on a funeral procession.
