Día de la Memoria, Buenos Aires

DiaMemoriaSunday 24th March, tens of thousands demonstrated for Día de la Memoria, the 37th anniversary of the military coup which marked the beginning of Argentina’s last dictatorship, from 1976-83. Percussionists pounded their drums, children played in the streets, activists and theatrical supporters spontaneously performed stories of oppression and liberation. Thousands marched from the landmark Obelisk down Diagonal Norte and from 9 de Julio down Av. de Mayo to join the sea of people carrying posters with the images of the disappeared in Plaza de Mayo. Young people painted their bodies with the words ‘nunca mas’ (never again). This day truly had me in awe of the passion and unity of the people of Buenos Aires. The following is a collaborate photo essay, edited and published by myself  (other photographers: Simon Guerra and Julie Catarinella) >>>GO HERE>>>
