Memorial March at Plaza de Mayo

Nunca Más

sunny 70 °F

On March 24, we witnessed the 37th Memorial March for the Overthrow of the Military Coup. This demonstration marked the end of the Golpe de Estado, the fall of the military dictatorship, and the denouncement of human rights abuses that occurred at that time. Thousands marched with photographs of loved ones while many more came with their political groups to show solidarity.

They marched to remember.
They marched to show their support.
But most of all, they marched so that nothing like this would ever happend again ('Nunca Mas!')

I recognize the videos from the Casa Rosada and its pretty politicized, but there's some great archival footage of the end of the Military Dictatorship and powerful imagery of the many who fought against it.
