"EVITA COMMEMORATION PLAQUE" Buenos Aires Off The Beaten Path Tip by mtncorg
Buenos Aires Off The Beaten Path: 211 reviews and 322 photos
Of course, the monument to Evita could only come about after the Justicia Party under Carlos Menem had reclaimed political power. Menem was always a curious Peronist who even now lurks just off-stage of Argentina’s political peaks. His rush to privatize political sectors and the rumors of vast corruption – an airport in western La Rioja is but one example – has led to a dramatic polarization of Argentine public opinion towards Dr Menem. The polarization is aptly demonstrated here on the plaque commemorating the dedication of the Memorial to Evita. It is Menem’s name that has been defaced.
