Every March 24th, Argentina commemorates the Day of Remembrance for Truth and Justice, sanctioned as Law 25,633 by the National Congress on August 1, 2002. The date coincides with the anniversary of the coup d’état of 1976 that overthrew President Isabel Perón and brought the National Reorganization Process to power. The date is used to remember those who were killed or disappeared under the military junta, a number that surpasses 30,000.

This year, the event was organized once again by the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, Madres de Plaza de Mayo Línea Fundadora, HIJOS, and several other organizations. The multitudinous march began at Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio, eventually arriving at Plaza de MayoThe event was jam packed and The Bubble was on the ground to capture the spirit of a community’s cries for justice.
