Carlotto calls to investigate 'civilian sector's' role in dictatorship
While addressing the crowd on a new anniversary of the last military coup, the head of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo organization Estela de Carlotto assured that the law has to “begin to acknowledge the actions of the civilian sector” during the last military dictatorship.
In a large ceremony at the Plaza de Mayo, and before many organizations aligned with the National Government, the leader targeted corporations, associations and media companies.
Carlotto specifically named “Mercedes Benz, Fiat, la Veloz del Norte, Techint, Macri, Citibank, La Nacion, Clarín, Ledesma, the Argentine Rural Society, Loma Negra and many others.”
Organizations sided with the National Government such as La Cámpora, Miles, the Evita Movement, the Peronist Youth, Peronismo Militant, H.I.J.O.S. and Kolina among others.
In a new anniversary of the National Day for Memory, Truth and Justice, many human rights organizations gathered since early afternoon at the Plaza de Mayo as they urged for a “democratic justice” and to stop the “corporization of justice.”
Their request matches the one made by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner during the opening ceremony of the 2013 Legislative Assembly, when she called for the need to “democratize” justice in the country.
