Juan Jose Valle

Juan Jose Valle was an Argentine military who headed a rebellion in 1956 against General Aramburu's dictatorship.

Aramburu's self-titled Revolucion Libertadora of September 16, 1955 had ended Juan Peron's second term of presidency. After Aramburu's coup against Peron, Jose Valle was dismissed in the frame of the anti-Peronist policies of the new regime. He then headed a rebellion on June 9, 1956, which quickly spread through the country, but was ended without any deaths. Aramburu's regime decided to make an example of Jose Valle by executing him by firing squad alongside other rebels, on June 12, in the National Penitentiary of Buenos Aires. This site is currently Las Heras Parc, where a plaque in his honor remains to be seen.
