Historia y memorias de las manifestaciones callejeras de los "lisiados" a principios de los años 70 en el Cono Sur (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay)

Abstract : In this article I will concentrate on analysing three street demonstrations organised by people with physical and sensory disabilities - known at the time as "crippled" (lisiados) - in Chile, Uruguay and Argentina in the early 1970s. The scenarios of these demonstrations are as follows: Santiago de Chile (22 March 1972), Montevideo (4 December 1972) and Buenos Aires (24 July 1973). The time frame of this work and our interest in focusing solely on comparing the street demonstrations organised at the beginning of the 1970s is justified by a series of common and opposing elements: the relative similarity of the social groups that organised them, their chronological concomitance, but also the role of these demonstrations in the conquest of political citizenship. The aim of this article is therefore to analyse the originality and specificity of the three street demonstrations of "crippled" people organised in these Southern Cone countries. This cross-analysis of the demonstrations will be carried out on the basis of a series of criteria: the social groups that organised them; the number and social composition of the demonstrators; the interest groups and political parties that supported them ; the objectives of these demonstrations and their degree of subversion of the social order; their strategy (corporeal or not) of self-presentation ; their duration; the degree of police repression; the level of success (social and legislative gains); the role of transnational circulations (transfers of ideas, forms of organisation and actions); their media coverage and their memorial uses.
