Obama highlights role played by Robert Cox in reporting human rights abuses

Commemorating the victims of Argentina’s 1976-1983 coup, United States President Barack Obama highlighted the work by former The Buenos Aires Herald Robert Cox editor and other journalists “who bravely reported on human rights abuses despite threats to them and their families.”

“Today we also commemorate those who fought side by side with Argentineans for human rights. Scientists who answered the call from the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo to help identify victims in Argentina and around the world; the journalists, like Bob Cox, who bravely reported on human rights abuses despite threats to them and their families; the diplomats like Tex Harris who worked in the US embassy here to document human rights abuses and identify the disappear, like Pat Derian, the assistant secretary of state for human rights for president Jimmy Carter, a president who understood that human rights is a fundamental element of foreign policy,” Obama said today as he delivered a messsage at the Memory Park in Buenos Aires City.
