Historical Background[edit]

Leading up to 1936 Argentina had been racked by political instability. Government corruption, failed revolutions and coups, as well as the great depression led to another coup in 1930 establishing a right wing government. José Félix Uriburu the leader of the coup was later diagnosed with stomach cancer in 1932 leading to elections in which Agustín Pedro Justo came to power. Justo proceeded to begin an interventionist policy to build up the Argentinian economy, industry, and infrastructure. Along with these developments the government maintained a heavy handed approach against dissidents continuing the political turmoil.
