FRENTE SANDINISTA DE LIBERACIÓN NACIONAL - LUCHAR Y VENCER [NICARAGUA, 1961]

"Con el fusil nicaragüense, hermanados triunfaremos
orgullosos Sandino y Rigoberto nos verán la meta alcanzar.”

I had a very difficult time finding a version of this song in decent quality, but I finally did! This, my friends, is the original anthem of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, adopted in 1969 and used until mid-1979, when it was replaced by Carlos Mejia Godoy’s Hymn of Sandinista Unity (written in commemoration of the reunification of the FSLN’s three tendencies, which had begun to split up in 1974).

Humberto Ortega, former General of the Sandinista People’s Army, claims that Luchar y Vencer was written by a comrade named Julio Alonso Leclaire around 1960, but this assertion is challenged by others like Luis Fisher, who claim that it was written in 1961 in Cuba during a meeting of the New Nicaragua Movement (a predecessor of the FSLN), and the Sandino Revolutionary Front (an early sandinista organization that grew out of the failed guerrilla operation at El Chaparral in 1959). I don’t know enough about that particular history in order to determine who is correct here, but Humberto Ortega is well-known for his mythologizing of FSLN history, so I’m going to throw in my lot with Fisher.

Along with the name of national hero Augusto C. Sandino, also mentioned is the name of Rigoberto Perez Lopez, the young poet who assassinated Anastasio Somoza Garcia in 1956 and is credited with sparking the rebirth of resistance to the Somoza dynasty’s dictatorship. In addition, we should also point out the emphasis on armed struggle and, as is typical of the FSLN, recognition of the historic value of fallen heroes.

Anyway I think you’re really going to dig this one, it’s a very good anthem despite the fact that it was replaced ten years later by an even better one. Check the English translation at the end!

LETRA:

Luchar, luchar, luchar es nuestro grito de guerra,
vencer, vencer, vencer es nuestro ideal
y al grito de “Patria Libre o Morir”
marcharemos al triunfo de la revolución.

Con el fusil, nicaragüense, hermanados triunfaremos
orgullosos Sandino y Rigoberto nos verán la meta alcanzar.

Luchar, luchar, luchar….

Las lágrimas y muertos, hermanos, en la tierra no pueden quedar
servirán de trinchera a aquellos que a la patria van a liberar.

Luchar, luchar, luchar….

La libertad de Nicaragua ya muy pronto será realidad
porque sus rebeldes unidos la dictadura van a derrocar.

Luchar, luchar, luchar….

TRANSLATION:

Fight, fight, to fight is our war cry,
Win, win, to win is our goal,
and to the shout of “Free Homeland or Death”
we will march toward the triumph of the revolution.

With the rifle, Nicaraguan, we will triumph as brothers
Proudly Sandino and Rigoberto will see us achieve our goal.

Fight, fight, fight….

Our tears and our dead, brothers, in the earth cannot remain
they will serve as trenches for those who will liberate the homeland.

Fight, fight, fight….

The freedom of Nicaragua will very soon be a reality
because her united rebels will bring down the dictatorship.

Fight, fight, fight….

Patria Libre o morir!!! Mis respetos a esos hermanos de Nicaragua.
