(Page 6) Approved for Release: 2018/09/20 C06627765 3.5(c) NR NR Approved for Release: 2018/09/20 C06627765 National Intelligence Bulletin March 27, 1975 Peronist labor leaders arepressing President Peron to curb the influence of her confidant, Jose Lopez Rega. They plan to meet with her soon and will probably push for his resignation and possibly that of Economic Minis- ter Gomez Morales. Most Argentine politicians appamntly believe that there is sufficient opposition o Lopez Rega to force the issue with Mrs. Peron. During the past week, labor support for her government has significantly eroded. Although the government claims to have smashed a subver- sive plot to paralyze key industries, several factories are still occupied by workers protesting the arrest of left-wing 4-rade union leaders. This unrest has been accompanied by growing politi- cal criticism. For thefirstiggle, minority parties within the coalition,tliat.retUrred the Peronists to power have attacked Mrs. Penn forAhe economic policies and her failure to consulewith th on other key issues. The concerted labor oppos ion to Lopez Rega in- creases pressure on Mrs'. Peron o get rid of her adviser. If she gives in, it is, doubtfujlthat she can complete her term without Lopez Rega's suppo t. On the other hand', if she refuses to make meaningeil concessions, she will face an increasing number of strikes, continuing terror- ist violence, and further loss of public support.
