Marcha was an influential Uruguayan weekly newspaper.
|Navigare necesse vivere non necesse|
|Founded||23 June, 1939|
The orientation of this weekly newspaper was independent leftist, and it was very influential in Uruguay and all Latin America. Many notable journalists and intellectuals wrote on its pages: Arturo Ardao, Amílcar Castro, Juan Pedro Zeballos, Julio Castro, Sarandy Cabrera, Alfredo Mario Ferreiro, Hugo Alfaro, Homero Alsina Thevenet, Carlos Martínez Moreno, Manuel Flores Mora, Carlos Real de Azúa, Mario Benedetti, Álvaro Castillo, Eduardo Galeano, Ángel Rama, Alfredo Zitarrosa, Rubén Enrique Romano, María Esther Gilio, Gerardo Fernández, Salvador Bécquer Puig, Hiber Conteris, Guillermo Chifflet, etc.
In 1973 it denounced the Uruguayan coup d'état. A year later it was closed down by the dictatorship, and Carlos Quijano had to go to Mexico in exile.
In 1985, months after the dictatorship was over, the old group of Marcha met and decided to open a new weekly newspaper. As they considered impossible to edit that same old publication without Quijano (who had died a year earlier in exile), they decided that it could not be named Marcha; this was the birth of Brecha, which is still published today.
