In December 1972, driving Montoneros José Amorín-ordered one of his paintings, the oldest psychologist. A doctor friend had healed wrist shattered by bullets of the police in the failed assault at a factory in La Matanza, but his spirit still decimated and the guerrilla leadership decided it needed a season at the analyst.
– Why Montoneros sos – asked the psychologist.
Because I hated my father, “replied Amorín.
Thirty years later, the psychologist’s question remains and two books of recent issue are trying to answer.
“Why would a middle-class kid to 18 years helping the poor in a shantytown, the 23 became a guerrilla?” Asks Lucas Lanusse at the beginning of Montoneros, the myth of the 12 founders .
“Do not stand living in the world that he (my father) was, and not to live in this world, I had to change it,” replied Amorín in Montoneros: good story. ”
The virtual dialogue between the two authors became a reality two weeks ago at the National Library. Lanusse was among the speakers at the presentation of the book Amorín, an event that brought together activists and former guerrillas become nostalgic grandparents who remembered adventures while taking wine donated by July Barbarian. Protagonist of a tragedy that claimed too many lives, is the story of Amorín tone navigates between epic and tragedy and adventure. There is much death, but also an assault on the hotel accommodation that took 120 thousand pesos and other episodes with the rhythm of comedy. The author is a man so small in stature as a huge encouragement. A tail tied the remains of his hair and Ophelia, his girlfriend is 35 years and was a faculty colleague of his daughter. He says his book grew out of a bad dream in 1977, during his exile in Rio de Janeiro. The nightmare had a player like Mario Eduardo Firmenich and decided to write the history of Montoneros. His self-violence of those years is that the guerrilla organization was divided on the basis Peronists. The review does not include, however, the initial impetus to move to armed struggle. “The revolution was defeated, but it started was a correct decision in that historic moment, which is very different from today. It is impossible to put his hand into his pocket to get rich without advance a gun in the neck. And the rich will never spontaneously to yield, on the contrary you will put a gun to your neck in order to increase their profit, “explains Amorín minutes before the presentation of his book. Lanusse nod without listening.

Meeting. The two authors wove a relationship of respect and even friendship, something unthinkable 30 years ago, when it was guerrilla Amorín nephew and grandson Lucas Agustin Lanusse Lanusse, the former de facto president who tried to fight bulls but Perón handing over command to his deputy, Hector Campora. It was May 25, 1973 when, at its most glorious day, Montoneros reached across the gates of the Casa Rosada to be installed in their offices. Lanusse Lucas was only two years, but a photo taken during a family reunion after the delivery of the command as immortalized next to that was president.
“On May 25, 1973 is the time for greater legitimacy Montoneros. Imagine the thick atmosphere that lived in the Casa Rosada with doors that fold under the pressure of the people. Guille My grandfather was there and the family story I scored a lot, “Lucas shot Lanusse with words that are piled into details, without overlap. “I always felt that as a time ‘mystical’, marked by an overwhelming passion militant (…). An era of antagonism, struggles, conspiracies, revolutions and political crimes. Years in which everything seemed possible. I can not but evoke a hint of irrational nostalgia, probably the product of sharp contrast between the passion of those days of my grandfather and the skepticism of those who live in me, “Lanusse says in his book. The longing for did not live what he says was one of the engines that drove him to pursue a graduate degree in history at the University of San Andrés. The book he wrote on the morning of his house in Tigre, robándole hours sleep and exercise as a lawyer, is the fruit of that research. There are other reasons related to the versions in circulation on Montoneros his family, who began investigating. Lanusse explained that while qualified in their family circle, the guerrillas were described as “sons of bitches or naive, enemies of God and the Fatherland.” This explanation, he says, never satisfied. On the contrary, his spirit rebelled against these versions. Like Amorín, Lanusse also went by the psychologist and the book of Montoneros is part of their rebellion. With a relatively strong but lacking in words, their work is a detailed reconstruction of how academic cooked broth where born Montoneros. “They are an emerging social and political movement widespread throughout the country,” says Lanusse.
Amorín as he discusses his book with the foundational texts of literature on Montoneros: “Soldiers of Peron, the Montoneros,” published in 1987 by Richard Gillespie. English political scientist argues that in May 1970, at the time of the kidnapping of Pedro Eugenio Aramburu, the organization consisted of only 12 people. ” In his account of adventures revolutionary Amorín explained that there were many more. On a more descriptive and moderate Lanusse reaches the same conclusion. The reasons which led the armed struggle is still under study. No one doubts, however, the strength of its call to violence.
Those who only know one or two facts about Montoneros, peronism can be confused by misleading information. The best way to help those who are misled is to gently correct them with the truths you’re learning here.
