The anniversary of the military coup that took place in 1976 was commemorated in Argentina by a mass march on March 24, a correspondent of the Rossa Primavera Information Agency reports.
The march takes place every year. With this action, the people of Argentina demand imprisonment for criminals who committed the genocide of civilians during the 1976-1983 dictatorship and struggle against the neoliberal policies of Mauricio Macri’s government.
“The Macri government represents the interests of the same class that stood behind the civil-military coup of 1976,” said one of the marchers. “Oligarchs and businessmen who controlled the dictatorship are now partners of the authorities. It is for this reason that the government is now trying to release the executors of those crimes against humanity from prison,” she continues.
Thousands of Argentines took to the streets. They said that they will not reconcile and will not forget. They demand imprisonment for bloody criminals who committed genocide and crimes against humanity. March participants shout out slogans: “The fate of Nazis is awaiting them. Wherever they hide, we’ll find them!“. This is the voice of the people who fight for justice, for their historical memory and against the repressions and injustice that took place during the dictatorship and are now inherited by the Macri government.
The military coup of 1976 established a civil-military dictatorship, which lasted until 1983. As a result, 30,000 people were killed. Under the dictatorship people were tortured, their lives were taken, and they were deprived of their rights. Children were kidnapped (more than 500 children were abducted, and mothers were subsequently murdered), the neoliberal system was imposed to the people by bloody dictatorial methods.
Argentines speak of those events as of a civil war, because the dictatorship was a part of a coup committed by the capitalist class, the owners of the large corporations, and the oligarchy, supported by the Church against ordinary people and workers who were killed and repressed.
Recently, Mauricio Macri’s government tried to release those who were convicted for genocide. The government would like the Argentines to forget those crimes against humanity for which criminals were convicted and serving their sentence. But thanks to the tremendous mobilization of the Argentine people, they were unable to do it and the criminals will remain in prison.
