24 Years of Rocking Argentina and the World
After protesting for so long, they’re famous! They aren’t much like the Spice Girls, but I think they're my new heroes, so I wanted their autographs. We started talking with some of them. One of them told me, "It was very hard." "When our children disappeared, we did not know what to do. When we went to the police looking for information, they said, 'Who is your son? Well, forget about him.'"
These Mothers want answers as to what happened to their children, and they want those responsible for the kidnappings to be brought to justice.
One of them explained that the white handkerchiefs they wear on their heads are actually their kids’ old cloth diapers (clean, of course)! They all wrote the names of their kids and the date they disappeared on the diapers to help get attention.
Well, they don't have a hit single, and I don't think I'm going to start dressing like them. Still, I know that the Madres de Plaza de Mayo are my newest heroes.
