The Argentinean Junta Drives Out Criminals is a Timeline Event that can occur from 1976 to 1979.
While the event is happening, several criminals may disembark every time a ship arrives on the island as criminals flee Argentina to escape the death squads.
La Guerra Sucia (the Dirty War) was a period in Argentine history where the government cracked down on militant and peaceful left-wing forces alike. Death squads used the pretext of hunting for violent guerrillas as cover for assassinating or kidnapping anyone they saw as an ideological enemy, resulting in thousands of disappearances. Argentina now considers the actions of the junta genocidal and holds a public holiday in memory of the victims.
