El Pueblo Unido

Words and melody: Sergio Ortega 1973
Adapted from an arrangement by Stephen Taberner

“The people united will never be defeated” ā€“ is a well known chant for social change. The song was composed by Sergio Ortega in 1973 in Santiago de Chile, three months before the Chilean September 11 bombing of the presidential palace that ended the Allende government.

The song was immediately picked up by the popular group Quilapayun. We sing it tonight in support of the progressive changes in Latin America and the world.
