Argentina: Mothers of Plaza de Mayo close 38th Resistance March in Buenos Aires

Argentina, Buenos Aires
December 15, 2018 at 02:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo closed the 38th edition of their "March of the Resistance" in Buenos Aires on Friday, commemorating their fight for human rights and in protest against the current Argentine government of President Mauricio Macri.

The Mothers and supporters marched under the slogan "do not give up, do not negotiate, do not be silent, do not forgive, do not forget. Always fight."

Mothers of Plaza de Mayo is an association of mothers whose children vanished during the reign of the military dictatorship between 1976 and 1983. The marches of the resistance became an annual event in 1981.

""It is true that we are here for the children, it is true that we turn the pain into a struggle, we are a political organism that defends life," Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo co-founder Hebe de Bonafini said.

The groups are taking aim at Argentine President Mauricio Macri's administration after he took office in 2015, having not protested between 1981 and 2006 under Nestor Kirchner's government as 'the enemy was no longer in the Casa Rosada.'
