(p.14) Chapter 1 A Constant Sentinel
The Cry of the Renegade

Raymond B. Craib

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins the narrative at July 19, 1920, with the expulsion from Chile of Casimiro Barrios, a white-collar worker who lived in Santiago at the time. The chapter narrates the life of Barrios as well as the urban geography of Santiago within which he lived. Arguing against using the language of the state and the police, chapter 1 instead argues that we need to understand Barrios as a “sedentary” radical—someone who was deeply rooted in his community and able to mobilize people for strikes and demonstrations. It was in fact his sedentariness that made him such a threat.
