“APR 25, 1960: The MRR [Movimiento de Recuperación Revolucionaria-Revolutionary Recovery Movement] sends a memorandum to the CIA, summarizing the history, motivations, positions and goals of the organization. The document describes six major points of the MRR platform: respect for the dignity of the individual; firm devotion to representative democracy; unbreakable faith in the concept of private property and free markets; the development of capitalism; political pluralism; and the democratic credo against totalitarian communism.”
