Quotes

[first lines]
Presidente Adolfo Rojas: [on television] And in my speech to the American Congress, I intend to propose a new kind of partnership with the United States. One built on cooperation and mutual understanding. The old cliches must be forgotten. During the next decade, the problems of overpopulation, of poverty, and of militarism, must be met squarely, if we are to survive.
