This presentation aims to analyze the transnational experiences of the Brazilian revolutionary militant Flávio Koutzii, born in 1943, who participated in the armed struggle against national security dictatorships in Brazil and Argentina in the 1960s and 1970s. The focus is on how he experienced his travels through Brazil, France, Chile, and Argentina, and how this crossing of frontiers influenced his activity and worldview.
