Abstract: Revista Punto Final - literally translated as “Full Stop” magazine - was founded in 1965 in Santiago, Chile’s capital. In spite of its enforced closure during the military dictatorship of Pinochet (1973-1989), Revista Punto Final has been one of the most resilient and long-lived Latin American left-wing publications. The magazine was born in the midst of the Latin American political effervescency of the 1960s. The founders were Manuel Cabieses and Mario Díaz Barriento, two Chilean journalists whose aim was to build a progressive journalistic platform capable of actively participating in Chile’s social and political changes. In the light of its mission Punto Final has not only recorded of some of the major events that have defined Chile and Latin America, it has also been an active protagonist in the historical vicissitudes the region has endured since the 1960s. Much of the material used in this article - a historical account of Punto Final – was obtained in a series of interviews with Manuel Cabieses.
