WILL WE ALSO BE A PART

Death Squads, Memory, and

Historical consciousness seems to appear only when it’s politically advantageous. As I write this, a caravan of asylum seekers approaches our border. Politicians and pundits may weaponize their arrival, but the question of why this is happening is rarely, if at all, posed in earnest. Americans, however, must live with an uncomfortable truth: The U.S. has wreaked havoc in Latin America. We helped shape the unlivable conditions from which many now flee, yet that grim historical fact is often deleted from our country’s collective memory. But for Latin Americans, remembering the atrocities they endured at home in the 70s and 80s is inescapable. Although U.S. interventionist policies in Latin America date back to the 19th century, our most destructive action was backing the military coups that were launched in 1975 under the name of Operation Condor. The campaign took place in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador, and the

results were devastating. In the wake of the cold war and the Cuban Missile Crisis, a pathological fear of leftism resulted in an international program of U.S.-supported state terror and political oppression. The U.S. not only wanted to forge ideological alliances in Latin American countries, we also wanted to reform Latin American economic policies. It was urgent that Latin America align their goals with America’s neoliberal trade agenda. To restore “Christian, Western values,” the U.S. helped topple democratically elected governments and turned a blind eye when death squads (whom we sometimes armed and trained) rounded up students, unionists, journalists, doctors, nuns, and anyone merely suspected of having leftist sympathies. During Argentina’s “Dirty War,” our thensecretary of state, Henry Kissinger, told Argentina’s ambassador, “If there are things that have to be done, you should do them quickly.”

1977–1983: Mothers of Plaza de Mayo protest disappearances in Argentina.


OF THEIR TOMORROW? the Tyranny of Amnesty Upwards of 60,000 people were “disappeared” as a result of Operation Condor. Many more who also underwent extrajudicial imprisonment and torture survived. The military dictatorships had carried out a systematic and secret war against their own people, eliminating dissent wherever it arose. Through disinformation and propagandistic spectacles of statehood, they deceived their citizenry. Rule was established by mass repression and delusion. As a result, suspicion, fear, and resentment continued to erode public and private trust well after the end of the regimes. In Argentina, Peru, Chile, and Uruguay, amnesty laws were passed a few years after the military juntas had fallen. These laws pardoned both sides of the conflict—guerilla fighters and military leaders—in an attempt to heal the wounds of “civil war.” Yet according to philosopher Paul Ricoeur, amnesty is a form of censorship that blocks, manipulates, and commands memory for political ends. This state-imposed amnesia effectively silenced the traumatic memories of victims, many of whom today still pass their torturers in public—in parks, in banks, or on the street. Where fault persists without ownership, reconciliation and healing prove impossible. In the face of deniers and justifiers, the past had to be reclaimed over and over again. Survivors—in response to this palpable absence of justice—gathered, protested, marched, sang, wrote, and shared their memories. They became a living memorial for the massacred and demanded accountability. But it wasn’t until the early 2000s—almost 20 years after the amnesty laws were passed—

that these laws were repealed, and members of the military were finally tried for human rights abuses. The events of Seven Spots On The Sun take place before and after a pronouncement of amnesty. The threat of historical forgetfulness that looms at the play’s center draws each character into a confrontation with the collective past. Their memories assume the dimensions of both curse and hope. The inability to forget, on the one hand, compels these survivors to revisit scenes of suffering and wrongdoing. Yet on the other, this return to the past represents the only possible means of transcending an unpardonable history. As Juan Gelman—an Argentinian poet whose son and daughter-in-law were disappeared—writes: death itself has come with its death itself has come with its documentation documentation

we’re going to take up again

we’re going again to take up again the struggle we’re going to begin the struggle

again we’re going to begin all of us againstwe’re the great defeat of the world. again going to begin

again we’re going to begin all of us The history recalled here may feel unimaginable to most of us in the U.S., yet we must bear in mind that our nation was a complicit actor in this distinctively Latin American crisis. Seven Spots On The Sun insists that as political and moral creatures we, too, bear witness to the disappeared and resist their further disappearance from memory. In doing so the question arises: If America was a part of their past, will we also be a part of their tomorrow? —EVAN HILL, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG
