    Background: BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

    The Peronist Party held a rally in Buenos ires on October 18 amid deepening divisions within the party since their election defeat by President Alfonsin's Radical Party last October. A measure of the split was that the party's president, Estela Martinez de Peron, did not return from Spain, where she now lives, for the celebrations marking the 39th anniversary of a demonstration to demand the release from prison of her late husband, party founder Juan Peron. A gathering of right and left wring forces said they would ignore the rally, choosing instead to hold two separate rallies later in the evening. A simultaneous demonstration called by former political prisoner Dante Gullo was to be held in another part of the city. The only speaker at the Atlanta Stadium rally was by trade union leader Saul Ubaldini -- but the Peronists' troubles have reached Argentina's 1100 unions too, their traditional power base. The country is beset by 650 per cent inflation and crippling 44 billion US dollar foreign debts. The government is planning to reduce wage increases to half that, in line with an agreement reached with the IMF (International Monetary Fund) to re-finance the foreign debts.
