Mario Eduardo Firmenich was a founder and active member of the Montoneros organization in Argentina before and during the Dirty War of the 1970s.
In his youth, Mario Firmenich studied in Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires and participated in the right-wing Catholic Youth Students organization. There he met the Jesuit Carlos Mugica, who would influence him on his conversion to left-wing thinking, and he became an activist in the Peronist Justicialist Party . He remained a good friend of Mugica until his murder in 1974 by the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance.
On May 29, 1970, Firmenich took part in Operacion Pindapoy, which consisted of the kidnapping and unofficial trial of ex-dictator Pedro Aramburu. Aramburu was later executed.
