Las Madres de Plaza de Mayo

Las Madres de Plaza de Mayo is an association of Argentine mothers whose children were the desaperacidos during the military dictatorship of 1976 to 1983.

Beginning 10 years ago, these women would regularly meet in the Plaza de Mayo, each wearing a head scarf with her vanished child’s name.

Now every week, they continue to march.  And each week, portenos young and old as well as tourists from near and far bear witness to their protest.
