The Tupamaro Revolution
The Tupamaros and the Montoneros were largely exterminated but today a Tupamaro rules Uruguay and aged Montoneros in Argentina's government. The question is: What has changed? What was the revolution about? (Pic.: A Tupamaro wall painting protesting against foreign debt). From the perspective of forty years and five thousand kilometers, I cant see much change. Uruguay is the same nice, liberal, agro-exporting country that was under the military dictators. Argentina is the same cleptocracy as always. What was the great commotion about?
