Today is Loyalty Day in #Argentina. ✌️

On October 17th 1945, a spontaneous 300.000 workers mass demonstration demanded the liberation of Col. Juan Domingo Perón, detained by reactionary factions among the Argentine Army.

Briefly acting as Secretary of Labour and Prevision, #Perón had granted Unions with strong social justice policies.
His doctrine called Justicialism proposed a "Third Position", instigating an virtuous and inclussive alliance among Capitalist and Workers.


@peron Peronism is the worst thing that happened to Argentina. it brought populism and destroyed years of economic, social and cultural growth. Peron was a totalitarian leader, he played with the right and the left. and it was the greatest exposure to political violence, which was brought down in the 1976 coup.
Moreover, the decrees of annihilation were signed by his wife.

@peron went to companies and "asked for donated" bicycles and then gave them away. Exponent of populism and institutional violence.

@peron More serious is the case of and Nelly Rivas, I even had a court case. But the totalitarian power of Peron stopped everything. To defend is to defend this. it's kind of gross.

@MartaMicale93 Poor Nelly Rivas, she was a UES activist an STILL TODAY some are claiming she was some kind of prostitute.
Still with these lies. She was a political young activist.
You can get a sense of the suffering of the Justicialist movement when TODAY, on 2021, still are women critizising a 1950s female activist as a prostitute.

@MartaMicale93 What an error! Asking for a donation of a bike or a toy for the kids in a Social Justice environment! Could even be understood as a progressive step in developing a light industry (who was lacking at the time in Argentina). But we must not be naive: it's marking a statement of giving for the Descamisados a feel for themselves.
On the other hand, bombing civilian population with airplanes or shooting civilians on a landfill is truly a huge and senseless crime.

@MartaMicale93 Populism cannot be "brought". It is not a thing. Popular masses reacts to revolutionary policies in their benefice. Its laughable to make Perón responsible of political errors, when their reactionary and shooting-quad and aerial.-bombing prone enemies subjugated the democratic will of the Argentinean People.
Only a illusive would think that seccluding 60% of the population political will would not get a response in the form of political effervescense or armed violence.

@MartaMicale93 The Annnihilation Decrees were not signed by ill Perón's Widow. They carry the signature of I. Lúder as acting president.
The Decree does not start (and that is completely proofed on court) a Dirty War.
The presidential decree 261/1975 stated that the "general command of the Army will proceed to all of the necessary military operations to the effect of neutralizing or annihilating the actions of the subversive elements acting in Tucumán Province."

@MartaMicale93 Human right violations were not cause of the Conmotion Decree. Its a judiciary ridicule to claim a Decree as a tool to disallow a democratic govermenmt, took power and commit crimes agains Humanity. General Balza himself explained that plenty of times.
IMO the crucial political error was to disallow the 1964 return of Perón to Argentina from his exile in Spain. That peaceful return would have a positive effect on the political scenario without the conmotions of later years.

@MartaMicale93 Peronism institutionalized argentine women civil rights, turning the mandatory voting system into a true representative democracy. Argentine females didn't even had political representation back then. But still you call it totalitarian.
What were the reactionaries doing in 1940s that they didn't want to grant female voting rights? That is not social or cultural, I must say. They wanted "their" women in their kitchens.

@peron talk is cheap show me the result. Peronism generate poor society and poor people. Thats the facts. You are a fanatic. Is your problem, not my.

@MartaMicale93 You are a gorila. That's is your problem. If you want to get an opinion, at least get your facts straight and compare one fact with another. Don't compare a massacre of poor people in a landfill or under aeronautical bombs, 18 years of political proscription of an entire population with your feelings about a bike for a descamisadito.
I'm not a fanatical, Peronism could be better, but first we must address your own kind of resentment with poor people. Jesus loves them. Do you?

@peron thanks for "Ad Hominem". You lost the debate. You dont accept other opinion, like fascismo. Like Mussolini, friendo of Perón.

@MartaMicale93 Thanks for the Reductio ad Mussolinum. Now learn this: at least you should start with 'peronism was disproportionately attacked and did some good things but...'.
But no, you would claim poverty or a different culture as being bad or inferior, or taking heat of a government providing a bike, or a highschool political activist.
So you must shave yourself, gorila. And buy the Gilettes yourself, don't ask for an aguinaldo for that.
