TODAY’S HOLIDAY: ARGENTINA NATIONAL DAY OF MEMORY FOR TRUTH AND JUSTICE


Argentina National Day of Memory for Truth and Justice

This is a public holiday in Argentina that commemorates all those who lost their lives or otherwise suffered under the National Reorganization Process, a military dictatorship that seized power in Argentina on March 24, 1976. The junta held power for eight years, and in that time, at least 30,000 citizens were kidnapped, tortured, and executed for their political views. Around the country, art exhibitions, poetry readings, prayer services, and other cultural events are dedicated to remembering the events of March 24 and its aftermath. More… Discuss
