This is how the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo revealed the horrors of dictatorship

Names: Azucena Villaflor de Vincenti, Mary Ponce de Bianco, Esther Ballestrino de Careaga and the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo.

Situation: Argentina.

From motivation: ”The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo led a peaceful resistance movement against the military dictatorship and oppression in Argentina in response to the enforced disappearance and torture of political opponents. The movement was born on April 30, 1977, when fourteen mothers organized the first protest in front of the presidential palace, Casa Rosada, in the Plaza de Mayo. Although they were told to disperse, some brave mothers began to slowly walk arm in arm in the square. While more mothers joined the protests every week, left-wing activists and those accused of collaborating with them continued to disappear.” Sakharov Prize 1992.
