Diego Salazar's life was a constant fight against injustice and inequality. In 1956, it was this desire for change that pushed him, at the age of just 16, to become a member of the Communist Youth in Venezuela, and also what led him to join the student resistance against the dictatorship of Marcos Pérez Jiménez at the Central University of Venezuela. His insatiable thirst for justice drove him to take part in the historic university strike of 1957, although it also resulted in him being imprisoned and tortured by the fearsome Seguridad Nacional police organization.
