    Background: Supporters of former President Juan Peron blocked the streets around his suburban home in Buenos Aires on Sunday (19 Nov) with oil drums, and a telegraph pole wrenched up from the ground.

    The big demonstration of support began on saturday, when thousands of supporters gathered outside Peron's house, chanting his name. Thousands were still there on Sunday and those who left were replaced just as quickly by new arrivals. Many of them came by train, arriving at a nearby station which Peronists had unofficially renamed Estacion Peron.

    Young Peronists searched anyone who wanted to approach Peron's house and took over neighbouring terraces to keep an eye on the crowd. Foreign newsmen were not allowed to approach because the Peronists said they "belong to imperialist companies".

    At one stage on Sunday, Senor Peron appeared at an upstairs window of his house and addressed the crowd.

    He spent much of his time preparing for a meeting with Senor Ricardo Balbin, leader of the Radical Party. It was to be Senor Peron's first political contract outside the Peronist movement since his return from 17 years in exile last Friday.
