 Argentina: Military Dictatorship Victims Will Not Be Forgotten

The march occurred to pay tribute to the victims left by the bloody and last military dictatorship (1976-1983) in Argentina.

Human rights groups like the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, the Mothers and Mothers of the Founding Line, 43 years after the 1976 coup d'etat that marked forever the society in this southern nation, will lead the traditional mobilization to which citizens will be joined.

As every March 24, whole families joined in one heart, a single heartbeat, to give memory to the 30,000 disappeared people.

The president of Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, Estela Carlotto, referred to the stolen grandchildren during the dictatorship who are still looking to restore their identity. "There are still around 300 men and women who are among us: workers, parents, mothers, office mates, neighbors, teachers and teachers of our sons and daughters, employees, professionals, are among us, as their families , we have been looking for them for more than four decades, "she recalled.

"We only managed to solve a case in 2018. The speeches that promote forgetfulness and justify crimes against humanity do not generate a favorable climate for those who have yet to inquire about their identity (...) it is important that the future never lose sight of the past, "warned Carlotto.
