Alfredo de Angeli (born July 1, 1956) is a rural leader of the Federación Agraria Argentina of Entre Ríos and of the ecology movement of the Asamblea Ciudadana Ambiental de Gualeguaychú. He became famous during Argentina's longest farmer strike, during which he led one of the hardline groups, blocking the strategic Ruta Nacional Nº 14, also known as the Mercosur Road, in Gualeguaychú.
Childhood and youth
One of nine brothers, he was born and spent his early years in the Paraná department. In July 1980, he settled in Gualeguaychú, in a town named Arroyo El Sauce. He has an identical twin named Atilio, with whom he is usually confused, and who is also his partner in their business society. His twin is the one who dedicates all his time to the agricultural activity, while Alfredo splits his time between his job and his role as rural leader. Their society rents between 675 and 1,100 hectares (according to different sources) to different owners.  They cultivate soybean, corn, sunflower and crop. Nowadays he lives in a house near the beach of El Ñandubaysal at Gualeguaychú.
