Translation: This Is A Reality! Disappeared Children in Argentina since 1974 and many others who were born in captivity. If you know something...help us in finding them. This is a reality! Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo call a March for Life and the integral validity of human rights. Where are the children born in captivity to these and other couples disappeared in Argentina since 1976?

Notes:
On March 24, 1976, military leaders in Argentina staged a coup against the then civilian government and began a period of Argentine history called the "dirty war." Although presented by the military as a war against armed subversion, military terror affected non-violent opponents of the regime, as well as potential and imaginary opponents. During this period between 11000-30000 people were kidnapped, tortured and "made to disappear" by the military. The disappearances were secret, making an exact count of victims difficult. They belong to a category of non-persons, between the certified dead and the living, for which Argentina became sadly famous: those who were never heard of again, the disappeared- desaparecidos. In the early 1980s, mothers and grandmothers, wives and sisters of the "disappeared" began marching in the Plaza del Mayo outside government headquarters. They were attacked by police until their numbers became too large and began attracting international attention.
