On May 30, as food riots were erupting into running gun battles with police in Argentina's two largest cities, President Raul Alfonsin stood at the country's main port and waved goodby to Liberty. Libertad (Liberty), the naval school frigate, was departing on its annual training voyage. The symbolism could not have been more stark. Behind the president's back, the death toll in looting and food riots rose to 15, with dozens injured and 2,000 detained. Two weeks later, Alfonsin bowed to public and political pressure and said he would resign on or soon after June 30. His successor, President-elect Carlos Saul Menem, who was voted in on May 14, had previously agreed to an early transfer of power, but with conditions.
