Argentina | Argentina’s History and The Dirty War

The Beginning

One of the reasons it was easy for the junta, lead by Jorge Videla, to seize power was the highly unstable condition that Argentina was in, and had been in for decades. And the coup of 1976 was not the first threat to democracy; in September of 1955 all three branches of the military revolted and forced the president, Juan Perón, into exile. Eleven years later in 1966, military rule was imposed again by a new leader, Juan Carlos Ongania, only to have former president Perón return in 1973, and die in 1974. Perón was succeeded by his third wife, Isabel Martinez de Perón, who was quickly ousted by a new military dictatorship lead by Jorge Videla in 1976. (BBC timeline of Argentina)

Argentina | Des documents de la CIA confirment que l’Opération Condor a cherché à «liquider» les défenseurs des Droits de l’Homme

by Nazareth Balbás
On le savait, du moins les gens de ma génération ne pouvait l’ignorer s’ils avaient un peu fréquenté les milieux de l’exil et pas seulement latino-américains (je pense à l’assassinat de Dulcie September) c’était de Wahington que venaient les ordres des terribles dictatures latino-américaines. L’armée française on le sait avait fourni des tortionnaires formés durant la guerre d’Algérie. Et les exilés devaient se protéger en exil, leurs organisations étaient infiltrées par des gens qui se prétendaient de gauche. Cela a donné une grande prudence aux gens de ma génération, à leur capacité à « sentir » le flic y compris dans l’excès. Je me souviens de Fournial, un des meilleurs connaisseurs de l’Amérique latine et de la méfiance qui était la sienne. L’hégémonie du PS non seulement a signifié la fin de cette méfiance mais la vague atlantiste qui niait cette réalité au profit de la dénonciation des « crimes communistes » (note et traduction de Danielle Bleitrach)
