Hugo Blanco is a historic leader of the Peruvian campesino struggle, and a key figure in the huge insurrections of the rural poor. He became a Trotskyist in the mid 1950s. In 1963 a military court condemned him to death, a sentence commuted to 25 years' imprisonment after a massive international defence campaign. Well known throughout Latin America, he has participated in many discussions on the role of the indigenous peoples e.g. http://wn.com/pt_Hugo_Blanco and http://www.luchaindigena.com/
