General Confederation

Image of the massacre of 55 when the bombs fell on BUENOS AIRES tribute San Martin scheduled for that day, with warplanes flying over the Cathedral, was the masquerade of a macabre plan that left hundreds dead in the streets of Buenos Aires. The Navy aircraft bombed and strafed several points of the city. Although the main were the Plaza de Mayo and the Casa Rosada, were also attacked the building of the General Confederation of labour and the presidential residence, where the national library is today. Innocent bystanders were killed under shrapnel and bombs of the squadrons of aircraft. Men, women, youth, elders and children, were the victims of most horrendous crime that remains unpunished, because the murderers of June 16, three months later returned to the fray and took power.

With the aim of murdering Peron, this horrendous crime, carried out with absolute contempt for human life, pointing to the beginning of the State terrorism in the Argentina. Terror became present and the crimes of the Governments de facto, which began in 1955, were repeated with sublime impunity for the next thirty years, until the arrival of the third democracy of the Argentina in 1983. During those years, the military took ownership of power, with own Governments which always counted with the collaboration of civil, and strictly controlled civilian Governments, which always succumbed to a coup. As Juan Domingo Peron in 1955, Frondizi is overthrown in 1962, Illia in 1966 and Maria Estela Martinez de Peron in 1976 (from the backlash of 1956). Currently the massacre of that June 16, 1955, is considered a crime against humanity. By Walter Gangi
