Article of Mothers of Plaza de Mayo
The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo are a remarkable organization of Argentine women rights supporters. They have been active for more than 20 years. Their extraordinary work has been sustained by two inter-woven beliefs. One is that they were born again by their children. The other is that they have become mothers to all victims of repression in Argentina.
The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo embraced these beliefs as a direct result of the lives lived by their children and the horrific deaths many of them met. Their children were kidnapped and nearly all were murdered by Argentina's military during its "dirty war" against the Left from 1976 to 1983.
The current Argentine government acknowledges that some 9,000 leftists and labor leaders who died at the hands of the military during the dirty war are unaccounted for.
