Carlos Marighella (5 December 1911 – 4 November 1969) was a Marxist Brazilian writer, politician, and guerilla fighter who lived during the 20th century.

Marighella's most famous contribution to revolutionary literature was the Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla, consisting of advice on how to disrupt and overthrow an authoritarian regime, aiming at revolution. Written shortly before his death late 1969 in São Paulo, Minimanual was first published in North America by The Berkeley Tribe in California in July 1970 in an English edition. Marighella also wrote For the Liberation of Brazil. The theories laid out in both books have greatly influenced contemporary ideological activism.

“The Government is making a fool of itself by attributing all terrorism and acts against the government only to one single patriot”
