I found the talk fascinating and informative. It gave me a bit of a new perspective on the militia men although I still do not agree with their tactics.

Extremely well-organized if perhaps excessively lengthy event. A three-hour event is a lot for a week night when people need to get it together for the next day. Also, Argentine food was advertised as an attraction, but attendees were not allowed to eat any of it unless they stayed through the entire program first. I was expecting to be able to get something to eat. other than that, great.
