Fundraising rally for the Anarchist newspaper of Venezuela El Libertario
Movie: The Rebel Patagonia
From 1920 to 1921, there was a peasant uprising in Patagonia led by anarchists. The army, led by Colonel Varela, reacted by executing some 1,500 people. Because of the remoteness of the region, the events did not become known in Buenos Aires at first. Once they did, the anarchist movement started a campaign against the "killer of Patagonia", as they called Varela. This led the Tolstoyan anarchist Kurt Gustav Wilckens to assassinate the colonel on January 23, 1923.
