Peligro Rojo en América Latina (In English: Red Danger in Latin America) is a book written by the Uruguayan politician, writer and radio journalist Benito Nardone in 1961. It is divided into three chapters: "Montevideo: Headquarters", "Contents of the propaganda: peaceful coexistence" and "Labor diplomacy". It reveals the tactics, organization and objectives of Soviet Communism in Latin America (Although, at times, it touches on the problem of Communism in Anglo-America) and its defense problems, especially in Uruguay.
The book begins by quoting part of the Communist manifesto, saying: "The Communists... openly proclaim that their objectives can not be obtained but by the violent collapse of the entire existing social order".
Later, a statement quoted in the report of Premier of the Soviet Union Nikita Khrushchev, who said: "We must reinvigorate the security agencies of the State whose ram is guided, first, against the agents who sent the Imperialist states". And this is explained by the words of some ambassadors stationed there; the agents to which Khrushchev referred to are all non-Communist diplomats located there (including Uruguayans). Therefore, Nardone suggests that Soviet diplomats should be treated the same way to guarantee the integrity of the State to which it belongs.
The first chapter, called "Montevideo: Headquarters" (In spanish: "Montevideo: Cuartel General") begins by citing the resolution of a competent research. According to this resolution, the international communist movement had taken to Uruguay as a base for propaganda in South America and added that this country was where the communists were spending more money per capita compared with the number of its inhabitants in all the Hemisphere.
The situation exposed by the study could be achieved probably due to the broad guarantees of democratic rights that the country offered. This, adding strategic geographical position of Uruguay, made what the international communism you see tempted to establish their headquarters there.
Below are a few details about the suspected diplomatic missions of the communist countries in Latin America, what the one total of 17, 6 had headquarters in Uruguay, in order to ascertain the truth. The actives representatives of Communist countries in the Uruguay were, in the date, the following:
- Czech: 9 officers and employees.
- Romanian: 6 officers and employees.
- Bulgarian: 3 officers.
- Polish: 6 officers and employees.
- Yugoslavs: 2 officers.
- Hungarian: 2 officers.
- East Germans: 5 officers and employees.
- Soviet: 50 officers and employees.
Also, 10 non-soviet employees in the Legation.
The representation of the countries of socialist economies is not only large, but is efficient preparation as promoter of the ideology inspired by the Kremlin.
The amount of propaganda written and filmed that came to Montevideo in aircraft was very abundant, and then radiated to the other countries latinoamerican.
Assuming that the command saw a recruit at each member Communist, the amount exceeded the 10,000 available in Montevideo, which "proletarian nation" requires greater duties than the country of birth.
