  • Description

    Over 25,000 people gathered in the Buenos Aires Luna Park Stadium for the first anti-government demonstration since the ban was lifted on such gatherings two weeks ago.

    The rally was organised by leftist and extreme left-wing parties, and student organisations including the outlawed Communist Party. Speakers called for the release of political prisoners and the repeal of a law banning communist activities. They also criticised General Lanusse's Government, which came to power a month ago, as "fascist" and "imperialistic".

    SYNOPSIS: In Buenos Aires on Friday, over twenty-five thousand people flocked to the Luna Park Stadium in a massive anti-government demonstration, the first to be held there since the ban on such gatherings was lifted two weeks ago. The demonstration was organised by extreme left-wing groups and the outlawed Communist Party.

    Speakers at the rally heavily criticised General Lanusse's Government, which came to power only last month. They described the Government as "fascist" and "imperialistic" and called for immediate reforms, including the release of political prisoners.
