Mothers of Plaza de Mayo

The mothers of plaza de mayo is an organization formed during military government of Argentina between 1976 and 1983. They work in human rights activists in order to reunite with their children missing.

Every Thursday since 30th April 1977, they walked for a half hour round in one of the most emblematic squares in Buenos Aires:  ‘’Plaza de Mayo’’, just in front of government house.

In protests, they wear white scarve with their children’s names embroidered, to symbolize the nappyof the lost children.

They have created a university, a radio, a TV program, a literary coffee…

They fight continues each day to don’t forget the cause and try that things like this does not happen one more time.
