Today is Loyalty Day in . ✌️

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.

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

@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.
