WWW remembers the anniversary of the last military coup in Argentina

On the 24th of March, from 1984 until today, all kinds of events are organised in Argentina for a rememberance day to mark the anniversary of the last military coup that brought down the democratically elected government in 1976.  This dictatorship was the bloodiest ever experienced by the Argentinean people with more than 30,000 people disappeared and thousands more imprisioned and exiled.

World without Wars once again took part in the march to continue raising awareness of what happened so that it may never happen again, and we also support the continued advances in the judicial cases of those responsible for one of the sadest stages in the history of the Argentinean people.

Finally we recall what was said by Silo in his Letters to my Friends, "Human rights do not pertain to the past, they lie ahead in the future, calling our intentionality, sustaining a struggle that is rekindled in each new violation of humanity’s destiny. For this reason, every protest in favor of human rights has meaning because it shows the powers that be that they are not omnipotent and that they do not control the future."
