Pablo Neruda: who are you o poet?

Angry Arab reminded me of this great song by 'Adli Fakhri and Samir `Abd el Baqi: Pablo Neruda in which they remember the poet and many other communist martyrs. The greatest thing about this song is that it links the struggles of people from Latin America to Indonesia. I heard this song for the first time on a recording of the 50th anniversary of the Lebanese Communist Party in 1975 that I still have.

Unfortunately this is only part of the song, which on the recording I have goes on for 20 minutes.

Added later: I found what seems to be part 1 of the videos, but this is not the part 1 I have on my recording (?)
