Simon: The Spaniards came to this country and called it their own. They took our land and enslaved our people. We've been humiliated century
after century, and trod upon by heavy boots. The Spanish have wanted to make the desire of freedom vanish from this country, but they have failed. They have failed because the desire for freedom is a seed that sleeps in the soil waiting for a rainfall that will germinate it. We must bring a torrential rain that washes away the arrogance, the pretension, the profiteering, the indolence, and the indifference of those who have oppressed us for so many years. This continent is waiting for a flood. A flood that finally inundates it with liberty. And we are going to bring that flood. The flood starts today.
Senora to Simon: It it you? The Liberator. (Spat at Simon)
My sons...My sons died in this war, this stupid war. The Spanish might have oppressed and robbed us, but at least we had our homes, our families.
Simon: I'm ashamed of my own blindness. Man's true destiny is freedom. The wish to be free is like a natural impulse. It's an impulse that comes from the gut. It's like...lt tastes good. It's like laughing...like breathing. Who can stop the rain? Who can stop the wind? Who can stop the earth when it trembles? Who? No one.
Rodriguez: It all started here, Simon. Here in this market. ... There were a lot of hungry women. They complained about the price of bread, right? That rebellion was the start of the end of the French monarchy. But it wasn't a rebellion, it was a revolution. A dozen hungry women, and suddenly everything changed.
There's a struggle that repeats itself throughout history, Simon. Over and over again. Oppressors against the oppressed. The thing is to know what side you are on.
Simon: This isn't just a war for Venezuela. This a war for the new Granada, for the Patagonia, for Peru, for the Andes Mountains. This is a war to destroy the border that the Spaniards forced upon us, and to unify the continent. More than anything, this a war for the American spirit.
General: But, who are you? A rich kid who wants a name for himself.
