Politics divide Mothers of Plaza de Mayo

The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo are renowned human rights activists: they were the first to protest against the bloody military junta that ruled Argentina from 1976 – 1982. In search of answers for the dissappereance of their children. As they celebrate the 38th anniversary of their first march on the Plaza de Mayo, the group stands divided on national political  issues. Some of the mothers have opted to side with the government, in return for (monetary) support. Others want to maintain political independence. Remi wrote the article for Press Agency DPD.
