30 years ... a struggle that still continues today

30 years ago today, a coup d'├ętat, one of, if not the bloodiest in Latin America, continued a process that was already in place, at an accelerated pace and destroyed, killed, tortured, abused many generations of Argentineans. One can barely imagine cruelty like the one that was shown. More than 30,000 people disappeared, countless had to escape in order to survive and tell the world what was going on. The Dirty War happened during that period.

This terrible history in Argentina has an amazing side to it though, people like the Madres de Plaza de Mayo (Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo) and Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo (The Grand-Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo) and many Human Rights and Social Movements organisations AND individuals that STILL keep on fighting for a just society and a better country. These are the same "crimes" that many people committed, they wanted a country were everyone would have the same chances, where there wouldn't be terrible inequalities.

There will be many events in Argentina. I am not there unfortunately, but my family is and so it's as if I was there, with them. We do what we can from where we are.

That's my past, my present and is my future. I REMEMBER and I WILL NEVER FORGET!

I remember going to watch a documentary with you and the rest of the Greenpeace gang, on the children of "the disappeared" in De Balie here in Amsterdam.

Hearing the stories of those children's lives, brought home the real pain and horror of that period in Argentina's history.

It is not something to forget, but the drive of those children to live on and create something positive in the world was very moving and inspiring.
