La Patagonia Rebelde (Rebel Patagonia) by Osvaldo Bayer (click to read)

Patagonia rebelde (or Patagonia trágica) (written by Osvaldo Bayer) was a violent suppression of a rural worker’s strike in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz in Patagonia between 1921 and 1922. The uprising was put down by Colonel Héctor Benigno Varela’s 10th Cavalry Regiment of the Argentine Army under the orders of Hipólito Yrigoyen. Approximately 1,500 rural workers were shot and killed by the Army in the course of the operations, many of them executed by firing squads at Estancia San José. Most of those executed were Chilean and Spaniard workers who had sought refuge in Patagonia after their strike in southern Chile in 1920 was brutally suppressed by the Chilean authorities.
