Tuesday 2nd July 7pm: London ACG – Film/Meeting
Workers in Patagonia, influenced by anarchist ideas, demand improvements in pay and conditions. After employers at first agree to workers’ demands, which are supported by workers in other sectors and areas, the regional governor, under pressure from local employers, orders the paramilitary police to intervene to crush the movement. In response a general strike is declared, paralyzing the ports and wool production for export. The government backs the landowners, and soldiers are brought in to crush the strike.This dramatised account of the events directed in 1974 by Hector Olivera was banned by the Videla dictatorship in Argentina. Meeting convened by London Anarchist Communist group. Free.
