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, 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.


@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.
