Argentina: Dictators, Solidarity & Culture

A Listmania! list by Preston C. Enright (Denver, CO United States)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Argentina is a fascinating country with a rich history. It also has some inspiring social justice struggles taking place today. The World Bank made this wealthy country a debtor nation, and then the International Monetary Fund imposed strict austerity measures on its people. These measures included deep cuts in social services and the privatization of government jobs and industries. This is the standard 'disaster capitalism' of neoliberalism that Naomi Klein has written about. Klein also produced a documentary called 'The Take,' which goes into the details of Argentina's economic problems, and the remarkable efforts of some workers to claim abandoned factories.
Before the economic collapse, Argentina suffered through a 'Dirty War' where thousands of dissidents and leftists were disappeared. As usual, many of the military leaders that took part on the Dirty War were trained at the 'School of the Americas' at Fort Benning, Georgia.
Despite all the financial duress and the trauma of the Dirty War, Argentinian people continue to create art, dance, share yerba mate tea and otherwise thrive; so much so, that they are the topic of a film about hope: 'Argentina: Hope in Hard Times' (available from Bullfrog Films).
Here are some resources to learn about Argentina's culture, history and struggles for justice."
