Read more about Argentina’s disappeared children.
Formed in 2011, the NGO Los Argentinos por la Concordia Nacional (Argentines for National Harmony) have begun providing an important forum for those whose lives were thrown into catastrophic disarray during Argentina’s Dirty War of the 1970s. A period marked by strong civil violence, the Dirty War was characterized by mass “disappearances” of those considered to be political dissidents by the ruling military junta. Through Los Argentinas por la Concordia, former leftist and revolutionary combatants, members of the national security apparatus, and the children of the “disappeared” have a place to share their stories and views, in hopes of bringing closure to this dark chapter in Argentine—assuring that it is never repeated again.
Los Argentinos por la Concordia Nacional speakers in attendance included:
•Luis Labraña: former member of the FAR, FAP and Montoneros organizations
•Enrique Alsina: Retired Lieutenant Colonel from the Argentine Army
•José d’Angelo: Retired military and group coordinator
•Members unable to attend due to weather:
•Rogelio Mazzacote: former soldier from the Argentine Army
•Eva Daniela Donda: daughter of María Hilda Pérez and José María Donda, both who dissapeared in 1977
