LA PROTESTA (Argentina) Digitized along OA model

In a 2012 issue of European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies / Revista Europea de
Estudios Latinoamericanos y del Caribe, No. 92 (April 2012), we see the descriptions of  La Protesta- Argentina’s important historical anarchist newspaper as follows, “The Argentinean newspaper La Protesta was founded in 1897. After some years, it became the most important anarchistic newspaper in the country. It had close ties with the Regional Workers Federation (FORA) that was established in 1901. The history of La Protesta gives a good overview on the themes concerning the Latin American realities in the first decades of the twentieth centuries (pg. 2).”

Argentina’s “AMÉRICALEE,” portal dedicated to the Latin American Periodicals of the 20th century, declared that one could freely access the issues of La Protesta Online.

The project is a part of CeDInCI. Centro de Documentación e Investigación de la Cultura de Izquierdas digitization efforts.

La Protesta Humana (1897-1903)
La Protesta (1903-1906)

One can download issues in their PDF format here. Several other left-leaning titles have been digitized, and the researchers can access these OA titles.

In memoriam: Diego Armando Maradona (1960-2020)

Diego Maradona is dead! One of the greatest players of football (not to be confused with our American football), Diego Armando Maradona or El Pibe de Oro (the Golden Child) rose to fame and much has been written about the trajectory of his life. Instead of repeating the information about the life of this Argentine player, I leave you with some books about him and football from our collection.

In order to search for books about Maradona, please see some relevant tips below.

Subject term = Maradona, Diego, 1960-2020.

Here is another book about him below,

I leave you with this clip that will perhaps make one wonder about the “Hand of God incident.”

On another sad note, Mexican Singer and Actress “Flor Silvestre” also died at the age of 90. RIP, Maradona and Flor Silvestre.
