DescriptionBetween 1968 and 1974, some Brazilians, outraged by the Civil-military Dictatorship and believers of the revolutionary ideal - inspired, among others, by the Cuban Revolution – decided that the only way to effect the necessary changes for Brazil was through weapons. In a short space of time, however, the armed struggle was crushed by the organs of repression. Since the end of the 1980s, there has been a profusion of works on the Left-Wing that worked in the country, the armed left-wing did not stay away. Our general objectives, with our study, were two: to carry out a bibliographic survey on the studies that had as object a specific armed organization, that were concerned with the different trajectories of the different armed organizations; the second objective was to analyze the memories – through interviews conducted by Marcelo Ridenti - of the revolutionary militants. For the second objective, we use the diverse contributions of the authors who dedicated themselves to Oral History (Alessandro Portelli and Luísa Passerini) and / or to studies on memory (Hallbawcs, Fentress and Wickham, Ricouer, Nora, among others). When working with interviews that have been in existence for thirty years, we asked ourselves and we wanted to raise issues related to issues such as: Gender; Left-Wing Melancholia; the role of resistance that armed struggle organizations would have developed and, also, the problem of suicide – remembering that this issue was “inaugurated” by an armed struggle activist, Renato Tapajós. With our first objective, we seek to show which organizations that participated in armed actions have not yet been explored, thus, the gaps in our historiography. In working with oral sources, we look for evidence such as the memories of the armed left, contrary to what is usually thought, it is much more diverse and dissonant than univocal.
