The Argentine Patriotic League (Liga Patriotica Argentina) was a nationalist Catholic paramilitary group, officially created in Buenos Aires on January 16, 1919, during the Tragic week events. Presided by Manuel Carles, a professor at the Military College and the Escuela Superior de Guerra, it also counted among its members the deputy Santiago G. O'Farrell (1861-1926).
The League counted with the official support of the admiral and Minister of Marine Manuel Domecq Garcia.
The League participated to the events known as Patagonia rebelde or Patagonia Tragica (1921-1922), in Rio Gallegos, during which 1,500 workers in strike were assassinated.
