Roberto Parada

Roberto Parada (1909–1986) was a Chilean actor, theater director and teacher with a long career of more than 50 years on the stage, and also was a standout militant communist. Parada was married to the actress and deputy of the Communist Party of Chile and the Party for Democracy, María Maluenda. 
They had two children, Maria Soledad and the sociologist José Manuel, who while working for the Vicariate of Solidarity, was assassinated by agents of the DICOMCAR (Directorate of Communications of Carabineros), the repressive organ of the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.
The political persecution led him to leave the country with his wife, heading to Buenos Aires and then to Moscow, where he died on November 20, 1986.
