“I only ask of them: Take care of the General; don’t leave them alone, because treason nests in the shadows and sometimes hides behind a small or a proffered hand.” – Evita
Since May 25 we have a popular government which, with the leadership of Campora and the approval of Perón, is carrying out the following popular measures, in keeping with the reality of the calamitous state which the military dictatorship has left us in:
At the same time, the Popular Government includes sectors who have vowed to hinder the advance of National Liberation and the construction of socialism proclaimed by our General. They are attempting to carry out their desires to seize the government, impeding Leader-People relations, putting a brake on popular mobilizations, repressing the union bases, etc.
They are Lopez Rega, Osinde, Calabro, Rucci and Co., those who today mislead and betray our Leader, as was yesterday done by Teisaire, Leloir, Vuletich, Di Pietro, Vandor, Alonso, Kloosterman, Coria and so many others who the People unmasked and sanctioned.
Before all of this, interpreting the will of our People, the Fuerzas Armadas Perónistas say: PERÓN IN POWER ...
IN POWER to carry out the revolutionary aspirations of the people and the Peronist working class.
IN POWER without the “court of suck-ups, traitors, and pimps,” who surround him today and who are the same who made the gorilla coup possible in 1955, and who for 18 years betrayed the People’s struggles.
IN POWER Without Lopez Rega, Osinde, and their clan who, serving the plans of the CIA, seek to be his heirs, resorting not only to the isolation of the Leader, but also putting themselves in his place until his elimination.
IN POWER without Rucci, Miguel, Calabro, Rodriguez, and Co. who, united with the political bureaucracy for the possible inheritances, try to integrate Peronism into the system.
IN POWER without Britto, Norma Kennedy, and other assassins of the People at Ezeiza, who serve as the shock forces for the integrationist project.
PERÓN IN POWER; WITH THE WORKERS AND NOT WITH THE TRAITORS.
IN POWER WITH WE WHO REMAINED ALONE AND BETRAYED IN 1955. WITH WE WHO SINCE THEN HAVE CARRIED OUT THE STRUGGLE FOR THE SEIZURE OF POWER AND THE RETURN OF OUR LEADER. AND WITH WE WHO ON MARCH 11 ROUTED THE G.A.N. AND ON MAY 25 TOGETHER EXPRESSED OUR SUPPORT FOR THE POPULAR GOVERNMENT AND ITS REVOLUTIONARY METHODS.
PERÓN AND THE PEOPLE IN POWER TO CARRY FORWARD THE REVOLUTIONARY PROCESS, TO MATERIALIZE AND DEEPEN THE MEASURES SO THAT THE PEOPLE VOTE MASSIVELY FOR:
IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE POSSIBLE FOR PERÓN AND THE PEOPLE TO BE IN POWER WE CALL FOR PERMANENT MOBILIZATION AND ORGANIZATION in all factories, cities, neighborhoods and workshops together with the F.A.R, Montoneros, J[uventud] P [eronista], J[uventud T[rabajadora Peronista], P[eronismo de] B[ase], etc, as well as elevating the political and military levels.
TODAY EVERYONE WITH PERÓN
WHATEVER MIGHT HAPPEN, AND COST WHAT IT MAY, WE WILL WIN!!
