Never mess with a mother!

I knew this was coming, but it’s still good to see it announced internationally:

The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo call on the public to join them denouncing corrupt judges on Thursday, as they release red balloons on a public street in front of the Casa Rosada (the government building), in protest of the release of certain militaries accused of crimes against humanity.

“Everyone who knows a corrupt judge, come out and denounce them at the meeting-place of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo. Because if the justice system doesn’t condemn them, we will remove them from office,” said the president of the human-rights organization, Hebe de Bonafini.

The demonstration will take place during the traditional march the Mothers have been holding every Thursday for over 30 years at the Pyramid of Plaza de Mayo. This one will be the 1600th one since the Mothers lost their children, “disappeared” during the military dictatorship of 1976-83.

Translation mine.

This has already been mentioned in another context on this blog, but here’s a link to the story on Memory in Latin America. This is the release of abusers that the Mothers will be protesting.

Never mess with a disappeared person’s mama!
