So, let’s imagine you have an elderly relative who was imprisoned and tortured during the years of dictatorship. (I hope for your sake that that’s not true). He doesn’t really have enough to live on, in a country where many people are, sadly, in the same boat. The government promises him some support, given what he went through, but he never receives it. He eventually dies destitute at 86, without even enough to pay for a funeral. Shameful. So what do you do? You smuggle his body out of the hospital, put it in a taxi, take it to the regional governer’s office and leave it on the floor there as a mark of protest. Obviously.
Edit: Apologies, I garbled that rather. The unfortunate Mr Canellas had no traceable family, and his mortal remains were used for political purposes by his associates at the Organisation for the Defense of Victims of Dictatorship, who are trying to get the government to comply with a resolution passed in 2004 offering compensation to survivors of repression.
